My RT for M6E is 1.36, so its barely over 1 tick (1.088) . Compared to some of the brokers that i looked at MB trading and FXCM that have STP/ECN their spreads are 3.8pips and 5.2 pips RT. So either way trading M6E cost wise is better. Considering that if i give myself 2 ticks slippage round turn I am basically equivalent to their spreads with the benefit of futures regulation, volume and order flow.

Yes guys you are absolutely right. I only pay $0.66 RT

And that is good news, I will now instead of sim trade my new system use M6E, with money on the line it is a little bit more realistic and slippage is a good thing in testing systems I think, because when I get it to be profitable on M6E, 6E will be profitable as well, when I keep the cool
