Trading ccy futures with strategies backtested on spot fx

Hi,

Is this a good idea? I understand there are differences in the quotes for spot vs futures, but are they significant enough to completely invalidate a strategy which was tested on spot fx historical data, if I intend to trade the strategy on currency futures? I am sure there probably is a catch somewhere (otherwise others would have done this too), just want to figure out what it is. Would really appreciate the advice on this one folks.
