I agree with most of the things grausch is pointing out.
But.....I have found the service I get from Fxcm most acceptable. Very little slippage.
Of course spreads will increase during news, that is the very same with spot forex too.
Spreads has not been a problem for me, but I'm not a scalper...more kind of a daytrader.

The good thing with retail forex is that you get free demo trading for as long you want .
...and it's cheap. You don't need to have even close to the capital that you need for trading futures.
It's a great place to start as a beginner.

I only wish I had started with forex instead of stocks.
My 2 cents about retail forex.
