How do we calculate MB's new forex commission structure?

It says 2.95 per 100K per side so 5.90 round turn plus the bid ask spread. I have read all the posts on here, some on ET, the MB website examples. I still don't understand... Anyone please explain in stupid easy terms. MB gives four different examples. I guess assume I am opening and closing my position in the same day, no overnight rollover stuff.

I am going to see if I can get a hold of a rep this week in case I don't get an answer.

I read on ET you gotta clear two pips to be profitable rather than 1 tick in futures. Obviously the attraction though is that you can trade micro lots. Ok thats as far as I understand.

i believe it's listing 4 calc types so you can figure out your PnL always relating back to USD from the more exotic pairs around, too...basically just 2.95 $ per side for the reg 100K lot plus spread...so 0.295 $ for 10K mini lots then.

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Chris , its $2.95 each side for a standard ( $100,000 ) lot so 29.5 cents each side for a mininlot ( $10,000 ) . Theres no other fee or spread or commission - its all baked into the one charge . * This is as per Jason at MB last week , I called and grilled the guy about all this and wrote down the details because I was unclear about it . His # is 866 558 3342 / 310 414 4522 . IF Im mistaken please post it here , thanks .
