Forex VPS: connection speed servers.
Consider the situation. Two identical robot settings they also are the same.
One makes a profit, the second robot causes damage!
Where is the problem?
First owner lives in the USA, the server, the broker also in the United States.
His robot runs on a server located in Los Angeles.
It's simple! But the second problem of the robot!
So where is the problem? The problem was simple in the decision.
Broker is the same as the server in Europe! He forgot the principle - "time is money"!
Bought a server at home, he is French and does not speak English! Did not want to understand the intricacies of the settings on the American servers.
So who's to blame?
Connection speed in the United States between servers 1-5 ms. The compound of the United States - Europe depend on the technical capabilities of providers.
There is a huge difference from 15 ms to 1 minute! But at the peak load, can be 2 minutes!
With automated trading is not acceptable !!!!
The result was not long in coming! He bankrupt !!
And write on the forums, a lot of angry statements about the "bad robot"!
Your server, and the broker must be stationed near !!
There are a few "gotchas"!
1 Legal address of the broker and the location of its main servers can located several thousand kilometers !!
(So the broker from New Zealand server located in Switzerland !!!!).
2 Technical Regulations of some brokers. Your broker of Europe has more branches in the United States and Asia.
If you are a resident of the United States, you automatically would tie to a branch in the United States, and the server you bought in Europe!
Typically, the broker is interested in where you serve! Many simply do not delve into the intricacies and fail.
Be careful when choosing a broker and server!
I will not advertise brokers and server (these are bad, they are good).
I will give a link to a useful resource indicating the location of servers - cheap forex vps -
The last tip! Price is not the main criterion for buying a server! :ugeek:
