Topic: Greater Spread Values
At present the allowed spread values are from 0 to 7. It would be nice to have more options, like up to 20 or 30. I know that usually the majors are below 7, but when trading with flexible spreads during news time spreads can go up to 15, 20. Even if you are trading with fixed spreads, either you will get many requites, which is the same as flexible spreads, or will not be able to get in trades at all. Most of the technical strategies are trend following and the best trades are made when you catch a big swing, usually during news. But then the spread value is greater. Whether your strategy can cope with real market conditions or not is usually the difference between a success and account wiper.
