What is a spread? in Forex Education_xx
Spreads are the difference between the selling price (bid) and the buy value (ask) or sell quotes and buy quotes. This spread is the income earned by the broker where when we sell, the spread will be charged between 2 points to tens of points depending on the pair used.
The amount of spread varies in each pair. For the same pair the spread given can vary from one forex broker to another broker. There are forex brokers who use fixed spreads, which are spreads that do not change in any market conditions. But there are also those who use the floating spread system, where the spread changes depending on market conditions.

spread is the difference between bid and ask prices and that belongs to the broker but we also can still return spreads through IB.

for a trader who opens a position order that coincides with the condition of the spread to increase, the impact of the spread will be very pronounced.

This spread is not fixed, because it can change according to price movements. If volatility rises sharply, spreads can even jump up to tens of pips.

spread is the initial cost that we pay when for a moment we open a position, for example broker A in the EUR / USD pair has a spread fix of 3 pips.

from my understanding of spread is the distance between both buy orders and also sell. This spread is charged to traders.

I once got a spread that suddenly jumped high ... even up to a dozen points, but after reading it, it was due to news ... but could it be dozens of points?

Spread is the difference between buying and selling prices. Many spreads offered by brokers. There are brokers that offer 4-digit spreads, some of which offer 5 digits. Starting at 0 pips, 0.1..1 and so on.

the bid and ask difference, that's the spread. if we choose the broker, the bias of the spread is also the main consideration, for example choosing thin spreads or fixed spreads.

If the spread value can change at any time, this could be an additional pressure point for traders because if the loss then the loss would be even greater.

spreads that I don't like, especially the spreads are as big as in the red broker, so it's difficult for scalping or fast transaction techniques.

A spread is a fee that a trader must pay for a broker's ration so the broker earns income from this spread.
