    The true interbank spread is often over 1 pip on major pairs. The broker has to make money somehow.

    I'd wager that you would experience a bunch of requotes and slippage.

    really?

    Here is a quote from their web page:

    FX Trading, Corp. is a marketing company and is not a Clearing firm or an Introducing Broker. We market for the forex/FX market place in order to bring news, quotes and information on foreign exchange trading to consumers.

    You try to contact them by clicking on the link - you get exactly NO info.

    A company that does not disclose it's office address and/or place of business is not something I would consider to partner up with
