Are you trading automatically? If you're trading manually, the extra RDP hop between your local computer and the VPS is only further unnecessary delay and there's almost only disadvantages for using a VPS.

That's correct unless OCO/bracket are managed locally or if stops/targets are dynamic and held locallytoo.
There are also advantages in using a dedicated machine for trading: you can avoid email, word processor, web surfing, ... which means no virus risks and a dedicated environment for trading purposes.

Yes, I think the main selling point for him depends on the ratio of bandwidth for market data vs bandwidth for visualization of that market data.

Moderator Note

Just a note, this company is pretending to be a user writing a recommendation. They failed to disclose they were promoting themselves (violating of our rules). They also used a proxy to hide their identity (violation of our rules).

They are now banned.


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.
