FBS All Spreads Review | FBS spreads are very narrow!

This is an article about FBS spreads.

FBS is a sponsor of FC Barcelona, and because of its very good trading conditions, it is a well-known and very popular forex broker in the world.

In conclusion, FBS is a awesome broker with very narrow spreads and the narrowest level in the industry.

In this article, I will explain the following:

You can know in this article;
  • All spread list of FBS
  • The reason why traders choose FBS
  • How to narrow the spread as much as possible

What is Spread?

The difference between the selling price (Bid) and the buying price (Ask) is called a spread, and this is the actual commission of the Forex broker.



For details on why spreads widen, why spreads change depending on the broker, symbol, and time of day, etc., please refer to the separate article “Low Spread Forex Brokers“.

Low Spread Forex BrokersWhen trading Forex, the cheaper the commission, the better. Spreads vary by broker and currency pair. Among the brokers I actually use, I will introduce the recommended brokers with low fees....

FBS Account Types

FBS offers 7 account types.

There are differences in terms of trading and platforms.

I do not recommend MICRO accounts at all because MICRO account has fixed spread method and the spreads are very wide.

In addition, I do not recommend ZERO SPREAD accounts because ZERO SPREAD is STP but transaction fees are charged.
And I also do not recommend ECN account, it charges high transaction fees and offers less products.

For other accounts, spreads are very narrow and are recommended.

For more details about this, please refer to the separate article “FBS All Account Types | Which account is the best for you?“.

The reason why traders choose FBS

FBS has a very narrow spread if you do not make a mistake in the account type, and you can trade under favorable conditions.

Narrow spreads are not the only reason for choosing FBS.

This is because it has the following advantages over other forex brokers.

  • Max 1:3000 high leverage
  • World-famous and safe
  • Customer assets are completely Conservation Trust and highly reliable
  • Max $20,000 deposit bonus
  • Cashback program
  • Negative protection system, you never be in debt
  • Both of MT4 and MT5 are allowed
  • No requote
  • Good support

Regards to financial benefits, FBS offers bonus and cashback programs.

By taking full advantage of bonus programs, you can think of the actual spread as narrower.

In the Forex brokers, it is common sense that offers bonus program means spreads are wide, so FBS can be said to be a super-excellent broker that overturns that common sense.

There are many other merits, so I am fully convinced that FBS is very popular in the world.

*In my opinion, FBS is more popular than XM.

To trade with the narrowest spread as possible

Spreads should be as narrow as possible.

You can trade with a narrower spread by taking the following measures and precautions.

Do not trade during times when spreads widen

Spreads tend to be narrower when there are many trading participants in the market, that is when liquidity is high.

Also when the important economics news and indicators are accnounced, and when if there are big news in the world, spreads tend to widen as well.

You can prevent spreads from widening strangely by trading at the most normal time of day when trading is active.

Take advantage of bonuses

At FBS, you can get a deposit bonus of up to $20,000 depending on the deposit amount.

The bonus amount of $20,000 overwhelms other brokers.

The FBS deposit bonus is 100% given to the deposit amount, so if you deposit $100, you will receive a deposit bonus of $100 and the margin will be $200.

In other words, the image is that the spread is effectively halved.

Even though the spread is already narrow, it will be even narrower.

By making good use of deposit bonus, you can narrow the real spread.

Please note that the bonus will only be given to MT4 accounts excluding ECN. Please be careful.

Take advantage of bonuses

At FBS, there is a cashback every time you trade.

Depending on the symbol and account type, for example, USDJPY for a standard account will be cashed back at $2 per lot, and GBPJPY will be cashed back at $3.

As a result, the real spread can be said to be narrowed by the amount of cash back.

As with the deposit bonus, cashback applies only to MT4 accounts excluding ECN. Please be careful.

Summary

What did you think.

FBS originally has a narrow spread, but since it offers a deposit bonus and a cashback program, the actual spread will be even narrower.

Not only that, the client assets are completely trust-protected, and FBS is a very well-known and very reliable broker in the world.


If you are still hesitant to use FBS, why not open a real account and get deposit bonus, and trade for the time being, or try a demo account.
