@Fat Tails, let us know when you release your new indicator -- called "Faster Than Light".

FWIW, I've been using @sam028's VPS service for many months now and it's been 100% perfect. I do all my trading on that system and it works great for my needs.

Mike

My trading style does not depend a lot on latency. I mostly enter with limit orders and do not try to chase the trend. But for market orders 200 msec can make a huge difference. If I was clever enough to run a profitable automated system, I would definitely rent a server close to the exchange.

My calculation clearly referred to a ping, which travels from the Netherlands to Chicago and back. If you divide the 67 seconds by 2, you will get 33.5 seconds for a one-way trip.

As I can see from the picture, a signal takes 42.0 seconds from London to Chicago to travel via Quant Link. This is not slightly better, but comes close to the theoretical value which I had estimated.

The point is that my calculation was based on a round trip, while the picture shows one-way only.

Yeaheeee, nice to see physics is never wrong !!

Ping < 1ms

How to measure a ping < 1ms ? Do you know any program ?

I believe only in profits, not in prophets.

Hetzner Online AG: Dedicated Server EX 4S ... 59EUR/month

Intel® Core™ i7-2600 Quadcore incl. Hyper-Threading Technology
RAM32 GB DDR3 RAMHarddisks 2 x 3 TB SATA 6 Gb/s HDD 7200 rpm (Software-RAID 1)NIC1 Gbit OnBoard
connected at 100 MbitBackup Space100 GBTrafficUnlimited*

Actual here in germany i use this as hardware base for running my own 4 sessions of virtual mashines under HyperV2008R2. Inside the VM's i use 64bit/Win7 for running NinjaTrader, MT4, one with a own Software, and one free for play&tests with any software...

Ping's to USA, CH, Hongkong i have under 100ms, lower i self dont need. Only in HongKong i have a own secondary StorageServer, while the transfer of no many short data packages is fast, only if i start a transmission of many megabytes, then my HK connection go from 10MBits down to 200KBits... For orders and normal HK datafeed this is no problem, only a database sync on working time i dont can do.

Before i use this variant with different local brokers/dataproveiders for US,HK & Eurex, i go the same way in compare to FatTail. I self connect fast from germany to a BrokerServer in CH and the Broker from CH has own good connections to all exchanges (better as i self).

@TimeTrade, this thread is about Chicago servers, which is what majority of traders want.

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Great post Time Trade !! Thx for pointing out this European dedicated server host. Something I have been looking for the last weeks. They also have the newest (3th generation) intel i7-3930K for Euro 109,-a month. That cpu comes in second place on the cpu benchmark tests. bjorn97

Bogan

Steadfast has been excellent. Not one single problem. Still get latency under 1ms. Sorry took me so long to answer this just saw it.

Going to a machine is chicago has been one of the best investments in trading I have ever made. Peace of mind and speed worth every penny.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
