What is Low Latency VPS in Forex Trading?

The latency is the time taken by a forex signal to travel from the trading platform (i.e. MT4, MT5) to your broker's server and responded to it.

When the latency is low, your trades will execute faster. Using low latency VPS, your Meta Trader algorithms will receive signals in a fraction of milliseconds. When they receive alerts faster than others, they will execute your orders before your competitors.



How to Detect Latency time for Forex trading?

To find the latency time of your forex trading, open your Forex VPS and follow these steps:

Step 1: Click Start > Run.
Step 2: In the Run dialogue box, type “command” (without quotes) and press ok.
Step 3: DOS Command Prompt window will open.
Step 4: At the DOS Prompt, type “Ping <IP Address of your Broker>”
- E.g. Ping (You need to replace this IP address with your broker's IP address)
Step 5: As shown in this image, the time=266ms is the latency time.

Want to know about the DataCenter location of Accuwebhosting? Please refer to the DC Location for more details.

In the latency report, the best vps location is suggested based on the lowest latency measured by our experts. Our experts prepare the latency report by performing a ping test between our servers and the broker's trading server location. We gather broker's trading server location using their public website, support system, and other public sources. Our experts have prepared this latency report in an ideal environment, and it may vary from time to time as it always depends on the server's response time. The best way to gain accurate latency info, as per our experts, is to contact the broker and perform a latency check.

Important Information:
Some brokers have their servers in multiple locations. They may set up your account in a location different from what you tested here.

Our Recommendation: First, set up your trading account with your broker. Identify the location of your trading account. Based on your trading account location, purchase the forex VPS which is nearest to that location.
