Interactive Brokers real costs

Hi guys,

i am using iteractive broker trading forex spot, but costs are higher then i thought.
For example, my autotrading has got an avg monthly trade <= 150 * 100k, then i expect an average commission charge lower then 750$.
But reading my statement i've seen that i pay not less then 1100$ x mounth.

Anyone else got the same problem ? Can it depends by Rollover swap like describe in this screenshot ?

Regards and thank you for any answer

The key point is "On certain exchanges". You may check which exchanges were involved in your trades, and check trade by trade what are the commissions.
