  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

@sysot1t so a server would defnitly help me. Cause the order will go to the server and would be much faster seen than my latency from uk? If server are in Chicago?
Thanks

if I understand your trade correctly... you basically place a stop order at a given price and wait for the BO... when it happens your stop turns to market and that is where the slippage takes place for your fill. is that correct?

in that case, then yes... a VPS will help you 100%.. you are semi auto think of yourself as the signal generation piece...

I would like to give the VPS a trail. Can you tell me the speed of the server? Dont even know if there is a answer to that? Sorry my knowledge in this deparment is zero. And if it works do you do VPS lease? And can you give me a sort of idea what the pricing for that will be and is it monthly contracts? And the server is in Chicago?
Thanks

A VPS is build on a real physical server, so yes, it has a speed . I wrote it previously, and you have more details in the "virtual private server in Chicago ?" thread, but yes, the server is in Chicago.
I'll give you more details in a PM, and will create a VPS for you now, so you could test it today, tomorrow, and next week.

In this case, if the stop market order is submitted ahead of time it would be residing at the exchange, would it not? Now if the user is using a Market If Touched order then that is simulated on the PC side, so the latency back and forth between the 'last' price traded and the submission of the new market order would benefit from a VPS for sure.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

comes down to what orders are supported by the exchange and where platform and where it holds the orders... yes.

Futures Edge on FIO
I pay $150 a month for a server with 2gigs of ram and fast connection speeds. Less than 5ms ping to Chicago and NY. I think it is well worth the money and all I run on it is my TradeStation platform. So far I have much better fills, however I also run automated programs so that insures that I don't lose a connection. If anyone wants to contact the guy I use just send me a pm and I can give you his email.

You can find cheaper, $119/mo for i3-540 2GB, and 1ms to the Chicago.

@eagle75... just a thought, you might find the following thread more useful and current. Am not a vps user yet myself, just interested in the topic.
