First I would like to ask: Is it a dumb idea to trade through IDEAL? How big are the spreads?? cable, eur/usd, usd/jap. The reason being I do not have a ton of money in my account and I have recently designed a system for longer term trading. This requires WIDE STOP LOSSES. Long story short I need to trade <25k Preferably 5-10k Should I stick with my beloved IB? OR would it be cheaper to sign up with Oanda? If it is infact okay to trade through IDEAL, HOW is it done?? thanks.
