What is latency? How the latency matters in the Forex Trading?

In terms of network latency, this can be defined by the time it takes for a signal to be sent from the trading platform (ie MT4), received by the trading broker, and responded to it.

 

The automated trading programs like  MT4/MT5, EAs (Expert Advisors) depend upon the receiving signals from the trading servers in real-time and sending orders signals with the fastest execution speeds. It can be significantly improved the performance of the EAs and other automated trading strategies by running them on the VPS.

 

We've checked the latency on our Forex VPS to the different Forex Trading Brokers.
