Why are low spreads important in Forex trading?

Low spreads and commissions, fast execution and excellent customer service are some of the reasons why Armada has been so successful in attracting smart and professional Forex traders across the world. Armada Markets was founded in 2011 and it has mostly focused on traders who demand very high quality of services. In this post we discuss the importance of low spreads and how it affects the profitability. Profit is the only reason why people trade Forex.

What is spread?

The spread is the amount of pips between the Bid price and the Ask price. Think of it as the cost of trading. The higher the spread the lower is your profits. The lower the spread the higher is your profits. You should always look for brokers where spreads are low.

Where to check spreads?

The easiest way to check the spread is from your Market Watch window inside the Metatrader4 terminal. We've highlighted the EUR/USD in the window where you see that the spread is 0.1 pips (difference between Bid of 1.33849 and Ask of 1.33850).


So, why are low spreads important?

Spread and commission is the cost of trading. For example if you trade 1 lot of EUR/USD which is equivalent to around 134,000 US dollars and the spread is 1 pips then your spread cost is 10 US dollars.

To better understand this is to look at currency exchange rates of ordinary banks. The spreads banks charge is usually 1 to 3% on the amount exchanged. So for example if you change Euros to US dollars and then immediately sell these US dollars back to the bank then you have lost from 1 to 3% of your money. Yes we know, banks are greedy! You can review the GBP exchange rate at one of the sample banks.

Getting back to Forex trading, let's take a look at the spreads of Armada Markets on our Exchange account. As we write this post, the spread on EUR/USD is 0.3 pips (courtesy of Myfxbook). If you traded (open and close order) 1 lot of EUR/USD right now then your spread cost would be 3 US dollars. Spreads fluctuate all the time depending on the market conditions and they can go as high as 2 pips, even 5 or 10 pips if there is maximum uncertainty and some big news come out. Big news are central bank interest rate announcements, major economic news (US jobs report, EU retail sales, etc).


Check our current LIVE spread here.

As top traders make hundreds, some even thousands of trades per day then low spreads are absolutely critical to achieve higher profitability. As you can see from the chart above the average spread of EUR/USD of Armada Markets is 0.1 pips. If you make 100 trades with the size of 1 lot each then your spread cost with us would be 100 * 1 USD = 100 US dollars.

Let's imagine that the same trader has also a trading account with another FX broker named BobFX and their average spread is 2 pips. The spread cost per on lot of EUR/USD would be 20 US dollars. As he made 100 trades then the total spread cost for him would be 100 * 20 USD = 2,000 US dollars.

So, at Armada your spread cost for 100 trades would be 100 US dollars, while at BobFX it would be 2,000 US dollars or 1,900 US dollars more. This means that also your profit at BobFX would be 1,900 US dollars less compared to Armada.

Please check the spreads of any broker before opening the LIVE account. As we have shown in this post - low spreads are important to reach higher profitability!

On this Saturday, September 6 we will trigger a live server update to the latest MT4 build 670 ensuring that you have the best possible trading solution with much more stable and secure functionality.

As this update will be done on our server, if your MT4 build version is higher than 600, your terminal will be automatically updated with no further action required on your side. In case that you are running an older MT4 build version (released prior to build 600), you will need to restart your MT4 terminal and afterwards be prompted to manually allow the update. It is strongly recommended to do so in order to take full advantage of the latest technology available. You can check the current build number of your MT4 by clicking on the Help menu and then the About submenu.

Due to the abovementioned updates of live servers, clients who are still using older versions of the MT4 (prior to the build 600) will not be able to connect.

You can always download the latest trading software from our website.

A short interview

How do you deal with losses, does it have an emotional impact on you?

I try to avoid losses on any case but if losses occur I accept that it’s my mistake.

How did you find Armada and is there anything we can improve?

I found Armada Markets when I was searching from google about forex brokers. Before I started using your service I read many reviews from web and tested your service myself. I hope you have a traders cabinet soon to make deposits even faster.

Do you create your own strategies or use the ones that already exist? Can you briefly describe your strategy?

Mostly I am focusing on price action. On Fridays I use Fibonacci retracements. Friday is my most active trading day.

Reason 1 why our clients are Smart Traders: They trade with the lowest trading costs on this Planet as our average EUR/USD spread is only 0.2 pips.

If the average spread at Broker X is 1.0 pips, then trading cost per 1 lot would be 8 USD higher compared to Armada.

It all starts from Smart decisions: www.ArmadaMarkets.com
