I just logged into my Oanda practice account and the smallest spread is 10 pips now. Usually it's like 1.2 or .9 or something for EUR/USD. Why is it so high? Is this normal across all brokers? I looked at the average spread charts on oanda.com and it seems like that's pretty normal for a Monday. Does it always vary by day like this? http://fxtrade.oanda.com/spreads/recent_spreads.shtml When my profit targets are usually like 10-15 pips should I just sit out on days when the spread is so high?
