    I am looking to open an account with IB's ideal pro and was wondering what the typical spread for the EUR/GBP pair is. Is it 0-1 pip like currenex or worse. Thank you

    does it ever reach 0 pips?

    sometimes it reaches minus 2 pips (but only when you have more than 20 posts on ET)
     
  5. I tried writing a system that trades on negative spreads on IB's smart routing system.... did'nt work :p

    no im serious, on currenex there are times when there are -1 pip spreads that last for a second or 2 which you can pick up if you are quick.

    lol, well i guess you answered my question about you being a smartass. But seriously, with a full liquidity book with the currenex platform, it does happen.
