I use alpari but you can use any really they all have similar spreads and on the major pairs and they all increase the spreads during news.
I use ecn alpari account on mt4
trades at 1 or 2 pips cover the spread it’s non comission account so when the trade is open you in loss right away you have to cover the spread and then take the pips.
If you open the other charts like gbpjpy GBPCAD gbpaud and gbpchf you will see if they are all trending in the same direction. It will give you more confidence in the trade. You will also see various bounce back zones as each currency will have its own.
