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.

kevinkdog this is exactly the type of first hand review that I was hoping for in this thread, thanks! BTW, love the picture and quality time with the family...... but you know I use a mobile App to access my VPS and I would probably be using even in "The Log",

I thought I'd share with you my experience with a VPS (Virutal Private Server) for trading...

Normally in my trading, I am at or near my PC all the time, watching many automated strategies. And, I have a VERY stable and reliable internet connection - I think it has gone down only 1, maybe 2, times in the past year - for very short periods of time. Finally, my strategies are "slow" - latency and time delays of even a few seconds are not a big deal to me, so having my strategies co-located or near the exchange servers is not a requirement. Any one of these is a very good reasons to have a VPS, since it can help with all of these issues.

But, as time marches one, I have been travelling more, and trading more automated strategies. The travel part is the big thing. I have found myself being away from my home computer more and more, so having my strategies run on a VPS becomes much easier. I still have to check things once in a while, but it is nice being with my kids on Splash Mountain at Disneyworld, for example, and still have my strategies running on a VPS.

(Here I am in the first row, thinking about how my strategies are running fine on the VPS while I have fun...)

When I realized I needed a VPS, I did some research, and settled on Speedy Trading Servers (Speedy Trading Servers | trading servers). I already knew the owner, Sam, from futures.io (formerly BMT), and I knew what a reliable, helpful and trustworthy person he is. That made my decision a lot easier. His VPS solution has turned out to be a really good service for me.

Right now, I am using the medium VPS service, https://www.ninjatraderbrokerage.com/hosting_services, and it works really well (although I think I am starting to bump up with the memory limits, and may need to go the next step higher sometime soon). It is affordable and reliable. That is a key combination for me! I only use it when I am travelling, but I would feel comfortable running it all the time. Someday soon I might do just that.

In short, I am very, very happy with Speedy Trading Servers.

If you find yourself needing a VPS for your trading, definitely take a look at speedytradingservers.com.

Thanks Sam!



Quoting 
I plan to live forever, so far so good!

Class act

I had a VPS from Speedytradingservers.com a few years ago for a brief time. I just signed up again today for a VPS and have to say Sam was able to go above and beyond. I was in a pinch and needed it setup within the hour and Sam was able to accomodate me.

I wish all vendors were this accommodating !!!

My pleasure!

On my side I'm very lucky with my users (I should say clients but I don't like the word). When they leave, and this is usually when I receive direct comments about the services provided, it's always because they don't need it anymore, never because they didn't liked it. More than the very good technical metrics (uptime, delay for support calls, ...) this is what I'm really proud of.
I think that not having a "seller cabled" mind, not trying to sell anything to everyone (if you don't understand what you're buying, don't buy it!), also helped to have an excellent relationship with our users.
I add a blog post on Speedy's web site with some of the last user's comments, true and unsollicited!

And remember, all started here in 01/2011, on this very forum. Few years later hundreds of users, from 40 different countries, a new location opening next week (in Europe), all good!

Futures Edge on FIO

Yes, it's up and running.
The servers are in France, 11 ms from Frankfurt, 18 ms from IB servers in Europe (Zug, Switzerland), 25 ms to CQG servers in London. So the latency is not as good as it is in Chicago and NJ, but good enough IMHO, worth a try.
By default, at least to start, it will be big VPS, 4 cores @3.4Ghz / 12 GB.

@Koepisch, if you want to try send me an email, I have a trial slot ready for you .

Are there any issues using a 4G internet connection with a VPS particularly if there are connection issues? (brief drops of data conectivity)

I have been having a real issue with the continuum data feed/Ninja trader on my 4G connection. For some reason the market data will stop and the only way to restart it is to manually disconnect the live data feed in Ninja and reconnect even though I still have internet.

No.
The RDP connection from your 4G device can be down a minute or so, the RDP client will try to reconnect to the VPS. If it's longer then you'll have to reconnect the Remote Desktop client to the VPS.
And on the VPS itself the network link is not correlated to your remote connection failure so the data feed link will stay up.

SpeedyTradingServers.com

I have nothing to say but great things about this company and Samuel Godbillot who must be the owner. He is Numero Uno in customer service and niceness. I live on the West Coast with at times spotty internet that I share with the multiple Wifi and Netflix users of my family. I investigated on Google: Cheap Chicago Trading Servers and found this company. The price they charge is very affordable and I've never had a problem with the uptime or speed of their servers. I like trading in Chicago, it just makes sense that my orders will get filled before others not in the same geographic area as the CME. Many times if I needed help, I would email Sam and within minutes he would log onto my terminal (with my permission and after I gave him my password) and he'd fix it for me at no charge. I can log onto my VPS anywhere I am very easily with my laptop and it's like I have my home 3 monitor trading setup with me wherever I go! I plan to be with them for a very long time. Thanks Sam for being such a great guy and providing such a valuable service at reasonable prices!
