Trading Currency Futures vs. Spot

Hi all,

Well I have been trading the currency futures for a while now and just recently started to dip my little fingers in to trading currency spot...seems like i am having a hard time entering into trades with my preferred limit orders b/c of the spread...sometimes it will get hit sometimes not...

I was wondering if people who have been trading currency spot indexes for a while might shed some light on how they go about entering trades b/c of the spread issue.


Thanks,
Suchen

What sort of spreads are you dealing with and which instrument (also which broker). Here is a view of some real time spreads you can compare with what you are seeing.
