    EUR/USD backtest spread on IG platform

    Is 0.6pips a reasonable spread on EUR/USD Mini on the IG account ? (backtest on 15min over 4 yrs)

    What about USD/JPY ?


    On the IG page you will find different forex spreads
    minimum, medium and high spreads
    see screen


    If all is right, IG designates the differences of things like varying spread to time periods. For example, from 02:00 to 15:30 for medium, 15:30 to 22:00 for high and 22:00 to 02:00 for low (low would be the 1,04 from fifi). What the time periods are should be mentioned on the same page.

    Whether your proposed 0,6 is correct, depends on the trading times. Is that not under your control ? then it is obviously always a too low number. But do you trade always in the “0,6 period” then it would be correct (for EUR/USD).
