What are Forex Spreads?

When you begin trading, you'll notice that you're given a 'bid' (or 'sell') price and an 'ask' (or 'buy') price. The 'bid' is the price at which you sell the base currency, and the 'ask' is the price at which you buy the base currency. The difference between these two prices is what we call the spread.

When a trade is opened, there are always third parties who facilitate the opening and closing of that trade, like a bank or a liquidity provider. These third parties must make sure that there is an orderly flow of buy and sell orders, which means that they have to find a buyer for every seller and vice versa.

The third party accepts the risk of a loss while facilitating the trade. Thus the reason the third party will retain a part of each trade – that retained part is called the spread.

How Do You Calculate the Spread?

The spread itself is measured in 'pips', which is the smallest unit of price movement of a currency pair.

For example, if the bid/ask rate for the EUR/USD is 1.12117/1.12118. Here, EUR is the base currency and USD is the quote currency. This means that you can buy the EUR at a higher ask price of 1.12118 and sell it lower at the bid of 1.12117.

The difference between the ask and bid price is the forex spread. In the above example, the spread in pips would be (1.12118-1.12117) = 0.00001. The pip value on USD-based pairs is identified on the 4th digit, after the decimal. This means that the final forex spread is 0.1 pips.

How Do You Calculate Your Transaction Cost?

To work out the cost of the trade itself (not including swaps, commissions etc.), you take the spread and pip value and multiply it by the number of lots that you're trading:
Trade Cost = Spread X Trade Size X Pip Value

For example:
A trade you have opened has 1.3 pips spread. In this example, you're trading with standard lots which are 100,000 base units.
The pip value is at $10, so the transaction cost is $13.

How to See the Bid/Ask Price?

  • Click on "View" and choose "Market Watch";
  • To see the spread for a particular symbol, right-click anywhere on the Market Watch window and select "Spread";
  • You can now see an additional column, displaying the spread for each currency pair, commodities or indices;

*Note that MT4 quotes spread in MetaTrader 4 points. To find the spread in pips, you will need to divide the number by 10.

How to Check Live Spreads on MT4?

  • Right click anywhere on your chart and select "Properties";
  • Click on the "Common" tab and check the "Show Ask Line" box;
  • Click on "OK"
