Hi All,

Just looking for some VPS recommendations to run Multicharts on.

I trade with MBT and Dukascopy so I'm looking at VPS's in USA and UK and EUR.

Cheers,

For automated trading, discretionary ?
Forex only with Dukas, or also stocks, futures, options, ... with MBT ?
How many instruments/charts/bars per charts/... loaded ?
How much memory is used with MC on your office workstation with these ?

Hey Nismo, actually I don't use MBT, but it doesn't really matter what you use if your just offering VPS suggestions I suppose. I actually use these guys to run continuous open loop scripts for record keeping but they are honestly amazing. I picked up a VPS with them 8 months ago and I try to refer people to them when ever I can. I wasn't the best with linux at the time of sign up so I wanted someone to hold my hand to get everything running the way I wanted it to -- they fully manage it if you want some help at some point.

I would suggest for you to check out some reviews for them but all you will find is positives. They have a money back guarantee, not sure how long it is but either way I'm sure it would give you enough time to try them out. They have more info on their site and I'm sure someone is kicking around the live chat if you have any more questions. They always have some random special rolling so get in touch with them and see what you can work out, if you have any where close to my experience with them you truly wont be sorry you did.

Hi Sam, I will PM you but if anyone else has any input this is for automated trading and for forex only. I trade between 1 to 10 strategies.

Hi Juicec - is your recommendation MBT? You said 'you don't actually use MBT'.....

Hi RM99 if you are talking about this thread thats not about recommendations and is more about VPS's in general.
https://futures.io/traders-hideout/822-automated-trading-vps.html


The reason I am asking for recommendations is because I'm currently using PhotonVPS who is recommened from MBT's website. At the end of the first month I noticed they hadnt licensed the server so I reported the issue to support and they said they will look into it and the next time I checked my vps they had closed Multicharts, maybe even rebooted the server and the problem wasnt even fixed! I followed up with them again and asked why they had closed my applications without warning and the only answer I got was 'the issue is no fixed' and when I checked again it was. If they need to close applications or reboot the server to fix the problem they should have notified me in advance.

Cheers,

Hi Sam,

Have been reading some of your posts regarding VPS. I'm looking to automate my executions however I am a discretionary trader. Can a discretionary trader interact with NT7 on the server remotely as if operating it on their local machine? This looks like a great idea for reducing slippage and eliminating disconnection risk.

Thanks

Well, one mistake I made was going with a windows server 2008 VPS.

Make sure whatever your server is, that it can run excel. I can't export data into excel from my VPS. I can still do it from my home machine, but it's just another obstacle to disconnect the VPS and then connect from my home machine and then go back.

With TS when I go to save a performance report, I can save it either as an .mht file or an .xls and in order to save as an .xls (which is easier for me to transfer the data/results into my own spreadsheets for further analysis) the server has to have excel. I've tried loading office/excel on 2008 and it's counfounded me.
