What is your internet speed?

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.

-- Big Mike

I realize that this thread is 2 years old but I hope things have gotten better for you. I thought shared lines went out the door with party lines for phones.

4MB for $480....that must be a world record.

What about DISH or HUGHES.......is that available in Ecuador?

BTW, why did you move to Ecuador, I thought it was suppose to be a nice place to retire.

Yes, much better for me now. I max out the 100mb port on the router they give me for the local fiber optic service, I get 100mb up/100mb down for $125 a month.

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.

I could have a lot faster in Medellin but I find 20Mb plenty for 10+ instruments plus anything else in parallel.

Since I last tested the ping to Chicago has improved from 105ms to 90ms, I'll take it

Latency and packet loss would be the biggest concerns, not width of the pipe. Having a gigabit Internet "speed" is all fine and dandy...

If one is downloading movies.

A fat pipe helps you download something like movies great. But when it comes to trading, I'd take 1ms latency and zero packet loss at 10 Mbs over having a gigabit of pipe bandwidth at 100 ms latency and dropped packets, any day of the week.

Internet "speed" is not all it is cracked up to be.

Naturally. But this is for my home office. Emphasis on home, so streaming and other high bandwidth activities are common place. Trading takes place on dedicated co-lo'd servers in Chicago with <1ms ping to broker risk platform.
