A closer look into VPS trading


A virtual private server (VPS) is a powerful computer used for web hosting. What does that mean for you and your trades?

You'll be permanently connected to the internet with the fastest possible connection. That way you can run automated trading strategies speedily and accurately 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Which is great news if you're in need of super-fast trade execution, or if your current internet connection is unreliable.

You don't need any additional hardware, backup internet or power supply of your own to use a VPS. There's also less risk of viruses and other technical issues messing up your trades.

How does VPS trading work?

The VPS remotely hosts the MT4 trading platform, and relays your trade orders to our MT4 server.

You'll enjoy efficient, secure trading - on any device - across the full MT4 market offering, including EUR/USD, USD/JPY and GBP/USD currency pairs.

The MT4 trading platform is free to download and allows you to:

  • Analyse markets using interactive charts
  • Identify market trends and signals for entry and exit points
  • Manage your trades using different types of order

A connection you can rely on

As many traders have discovered, a VPS is safe and reliable, with most reputable providers guaranteeing 99.9% uptime. With a VPS you can:

  • Connect to your platform anywhere, any time
  • Reduce time and delays between order entry and execution
  • Continue trading as usual during unexpected power outages
  • Reduce slippage, as a VPS can reduce the time it takes to send your trades

The benefits of trading with a VPS

  • Fastest possible connection speed
  • Unaffected by outages or system errors
  • Suitable for traders using Expert Advisors
  • Trades can be executed while your computer is switched off
  • You can open several MT4 panels from the same VPS
  • Works smoothly alongside many operating systems

Trading is all about timing, so you need a secure system that's also fast and reliable - especially if your trades are automated.
