The issue is to eliminate variation in spread if possible.

Some brokers have spread spikes of 80 pips or more during session opening.

i find more disadvantages with the opportunity of profit with fixed spreads. much prefer floating.

Yes, but as I see, fixed spread is always higher. EA can be set up to trade only if spread is below a different level, or ask for confirmation is speed is higher etc.

Yes of course, but it is how the EA behaves with open trades and a crazy spread that I am referring to.
In addition to this there can be a very significant difference in profit between a spread of 1 vs. a spread of 2.
