17 pips spread on price

Hi everybody I am actually using xm.com Forex, Stock Indices, Oil, Gold and CFDs by XM™ (XM.COM) demo account with metatrader4, and despite adverstising a 0.0001 spread on eurusd MT executes my trades with a 17 pips difference between price of the cross and the price at which they execute my position! is that normal?

could you please advise me any other good broker with small spreads that I can use with MT4?

thank you very much

Its not 17 pips, its 1.7 pips.
