I'm with interactive brokers (ecn) so I don't think they can trade against me trading forex.


But do you get cheaper commissions for FOREX than for futures?


Interactive Brokers Commissions

Futures 6E 1 lot 125,000 -> commission + regulatory fees = $ 0.85 + $ 1.62 = $ 2.47

FOREX 1.25 lots 125,000 -> commission = 0.2 * 0.0001 * 125,000 = 2.50 = $ 3.33
