Is 3 pips a competitive spread for a FOREX broker to offer?

I am new to FOREX and am considering using HYMARKETS.COM who appear to offer a 3 pip spread. Is this competitive and if not where can this be beaten? Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks

    3 pips for the majors is average.

    These guys only received 2 stars. Be very careful. FX is one of the least regulated industries. There are no good brokers… there are only brokers that are not as bad as others. There is a 96% chance you’ll lose your money in 3 months or less.

    Spend some time on education. A year would be a great idea. Paper trading will help you with the platform but will do little to help you with the skill of trading. Your results in paper trading mean very little.

    I work for a broker and it depends of the amount to be operated it can negotiate the spread, up to 1 or 2 if you have doubts you write me for this means.

    Most of the brokers are offering spread ranging from 2-5 pips on various currency pairs. Major currency pairs like usd/eur, gbp/usd, eur/gbp, usd/jpy etc has lesser and other pairs have higher spread. Your broker is offering average spread but if this 3 pips are for minor currency pairs then it would definitely considered competitive.

    Hope this information helps you.
