Is VPS hosting necessary to trade forex with EAs?

Postby FXVM » Mon Apr 21, 2014 11:54 pm

Forex VPS hosting plays a major role in many areas of business and IT, and it is also beginning to play a significant role in automated forex trading and the hosting of financial applications. Given that financial applications, and especially forex EAs, often require more stability and faster connectivity than any other type of application, the benefits of forex VPS hosting suit it perfectly:
  • Access to advanced hardware for a fraction of the full cost of colocating your own system.
  • As above, the ability to utilize top-tier data networks and connectivity, without owning the entire contract yourself.
  • Configuration of fail-over and high-availability systems, to ensure continuity of hosted applications.
  • Easy scalability, allowing you to start with only the resources you need, and expand later.
  • We perform professional maintenance and administration of the physical hardware and network components at no additional cost.

The speed of order execution is usually of the highest importance for traders, especially for those who run automated trading systems. To achieve maximum performance for trading applications, it is necessary to host them as near as possible to the services and networks they will be interfacing with, such as brokers and other financial institutions, as well as account managers and signal providers. In the most common scenario, these networks are located at a few key points in New York City or London, so it is ideal to run trading applications on a computer located as nearby as possible.

For these reasons and the advantages outlined, it is highly advisable to use a forex VPS with automated forex trading software, such as MT4 expert advisors and other programs!
