Forex Broker Spreads 

Currency spreads are quoted in terms of two different prices: bid and ask price. Bid price is the price at which you can sell the base currency, while ask price is the price at which you can buy the base currency.

For example, if the bid/ask rate for the EUR/USD is 1.1251/1.1252. Here, EUR is the base currency and USD is the quote currency. This means that you can buy the EUR at a higher ask price of 1.1252 and sell it lower at the bid of 1.1251. 

The difference between ask and bid price is the forex spread. In the above example, the spread in pips would be (1.1252-1.1251) = 0.0001. The pip value on USD-based pairs is identified on the 4th digit, after the decimal. This means that the final forex spread is 0.1 pips. 

To calculate the total spread cost, multiply this pip value by the total number of lots traded. So, if you are trading a EUR/USD trading lot of 10,000, your total cost will be 0.0001 (0.1 pips) x 10000 = .1. 

In case you are trading a standard lot (100,000 units of the currency), your spread cost would be 0.0001 (0.1pips) x 100,000 = .

Now, if your account is denominated in another currency, say GBP, you will need to convert that into US Dollars. 

It is important for traders to be familiar with forex spreads, since they represent the primary cost of trading. It is an important parametre to consider when you choose a broker.

How to Check Live Forex Spreads on the FP Markets MT4 Platform.

If, by default, your MT4 account shows only the bid price, you can check with our ask line:

  • Right click anywhere on your chart and select “Properties
  • Click on the “Common” tab and check the “Show Ask Line” box
  • Click on “OK

Now you can see the bid/ask price for any instrument:

  • Click on “View” and choose “Market Watch
  • To see the spread for a particular symbol, right-click anywhere on the Market Watch window and select “Spread
  • You can now see an additional column, displaying the spread for each currency pair, commodities or indices. 
  • Note that MT4 quotes spreads in MetaTrader 4 points. To find the spread in pips, you will need to divide the number by 10. 

Understanding High and Low Forex Spreads 

It is important to know that FX spreads can fluctuate throughout the day. This is because spreads are influenced by several factors, such as liquidity, volatility and market news. You will see some major currency pairs, like the EUR/USD or GBP/USD, which tend to have more liquidity, also have lower spreads than emerging currency pairs, like the USD/TRY. 

Also, liquidity can decline and spreads can widen in the days or hours leading up to major economic news events and between trading sessions.

Keep an eye on the economic calendar. Releases occur sporadically and depending on whether expectations are met or not, prices can fluctuate rapidly. If you are currently holding a position and the spread widens, you could receive a margin call. 

It is also important to understand the difference between fixed and variable spreads. Fixed spreads remain the same, no matter what the market conditions are. Variable spreads keep on changing, based on the supply and demand of the instruments and the overall market volatility.

Choosing the optimal spread type is important to bring down trading costs. While traders with smaller accounts, who trade less frequently, could benefit from fixed spreads, those who trade more frequently and during peak market hours (when the spreads are the tightest), might prefer variable spreads. Variable spreads eliminate chances of requotes, and in calmer markets, they tend to be much lower than fixed spreads.
