Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • 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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

No, there are a big difference's between them, 50ms - 190ms.

But now when I thinking about it, I don't need to check it to an Chicago server I need to check it to the Interactive Brokers server, how can I do that???

Michael

You can ping gw1.ibllc.com (in Connecticut) or gw1.chicago.ibllc.com (Chicago) from a DOS or a PowerShell window.

Here's a speedtest check from Manila to Chicago. As you see internet speed and latency really sucks for a $40/month line. This is a shared line and our "awesome" telcos have "Fair Use Policy" which we are capped at about 5-10GB per day. Some are worse at 5-10GB per month.

Also, our "awesome" telcos are marketing unlimited internet connection even with hidden cap limits. They really think their subscribers are primates. Duh.

Getting a dedicated line would cost me about ~$500 a month. That won't fit my current budget.

Anyway, results below:

Speed of the Comcast Internet

I have the Double Play Package from Comcast. My readings 60.11 Mbps Download and 12.16 Mbps Upload Speed. I did see the Triple Play Package with speeds of 110 Mbps. I guess the faster the better. I'm paying $125 per month. I think
I'll upgrade to the Triple Play. What do think. Should I do it?

Bandwidth has no benefit to trading. Only latency, which is dictated by where you live (distance from Chicago for example).

Bandwidth is great for Netflix, YouTube, etc, but even a 1Mbps connection is sufficient for trading even with dozens of charts.

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.

I agree but in fact the latency is highly correlated to the bandwidth itself (for "retail" Internet providers).
