According to metatrader help file MarketInfo() "Returns various data about securities listed in the "Market Watch" window". Conclusion, neither MODE_ASK nor MODE_BID are reliable (that is the only explanation why MODE_SPREAD can be wrong)

checkin,

You are trying to apply logic. To MetaTrader.

And brokers.

I am just quoting what the masters are telling us. If one is correct the other must be correct too. If one is not correct, the rest can not be correct either. Applying the logic that we have taught from using metatrader, the later is the true : MarketInfo() function in any mode is not reliable

So far I haven't had problems with MarketInfo() for bid and ask but, now that you told it, will make a small indicator that will record any eventual differences - just in case

Here is a version that calculates spreads from Ask and Bid as well from marketInfo() ask and bid. Green is calculated from Ask-Bid red is calculated from MarketInfo() data. The broker from this test does not seem to have problems : _test_spread_from_ask_and_bid.mq4

So far it seems that market mode is working OK on all the brokers I tested
