With chicago i meant that i need to be close to the CME since i trade the ES and thought closer to exchange is important didn't know that closer to the server of my broker is even more important, but where is their server located? So i need to find a data center that is closer to the server of my broker and not the exchange?

What you can do is:
- not connected to OEC, you can type a "netstat -n" in command line, and store the result somewhere
- connect to OEC, and type a "netstat -n" in command line, and store the result somewhere else
- check the difference between the two
- the difference will be OEC server
You can then try to ping or tracert them, to see where they are.
You can also put here the results or the screenshots, I'll try from my servers in Chicago and New-Jersey, to find where and how far they are (my Chicago servers are in an Equinix data center).

It is just important to understand the way that the signal travels. If you do not have a seat at the exchange you connect to the server of the broker. The broker will then perform a margin check, before the order is transmitted to the exchange.

To minimize the distance that the signals travels you should have a data center as close as possible to the access point of your broker. If you execute any trade manually you need to log into your virtual server, which will transmit the screen of your virtual desktop to your trading PC or trading device. Then your mouseclick will be transmitted back to the virtual server. From there the order will go to the broker.

A limit or stop order will be transmitted from the broker to the exchange. It will then sit in the order book and wait. There is no latency when one of these orders is executed, as it is already sitting on the book!

The benefits of a colocated server also depend on other characteristics of your automated strategy. If your automated strategy

-> enters or exits via market orders
-> enter or exits via simulated stop or limit orders (not sitting at the exchange, but locally held)
-> uses range bars, Renko bars or volume bars to trigger signals (volatility triggers both the completion of the bar and the price move)

then a virtual server close to the access point of the broker is highly beneficial.
