If the spread is 3 pips for example and your trading 2 lots, will the 3 pip spread be taken from each lot or 3 pips for the whole trade?

And dont tell me not to think about a big trade like that because i dont know enough, im just asking.

3 pips is taken for each lot.

Suppose you do a long trade and enter at 0.

You exit at 10.

Each lot then makes 10 pips or if you like, 20 pips total.

Now the spread is 3 pips for each lot so…

Spread is then 6 pips.

Your profit is 20-6 = 14 pips.

Hope this helps.

Finally, 3 pip spread is a good number to work with.

4 pips you can still tolerate.

But after that, unless you really know the pair you are trading, then more spread will make it very hard work.

you pay the spread on every lot you trade
