    Hi Forex Signals Team,

    I received the survey about ForexVPS service and I highlighted again this topic (Copier+VPS in New York). Is there any news about this project?

    thanx

    In my opinion we should have our infrastructure as close as possible to Broker server.

    It means that if GlobalPrime nad ICM has their servers in NY
    we should have simple trader infrastructure in NY
    our personal VPS with copier installed should be located in NY

    in following scenario, we are reducing to almost zero delay caused by latency across different datacenters / vps..
    zero latency should be our goal.

    Every trader should by able to choose from which simletrader infrastructure we want to use.
    we can use simpletrader control panel to save this information, or make additional option in EA.

    I switch my personal VPS from Poland to NY and I've noticed better execution time, less slippage better results. For scalping (fx viper) it's crucial to execute order fast.
    Before switching to NY, I was losing 100-120 pips / month on slippage, after i am losing around 60-70...

    Regards,
    Ace

    That is good thinking Bill.

    I think, however the main reason the good Brokers have their servers in NY is because that's where the liquidity providers servers are. I think in theory installing a server in the UK would result in slower execution due to the trade being be passed across the pond to the liquidity provider.

    Hello Bill,

    That's a very good idea indeed.
    Might be that the location of the Brokers infrastructure has to be checked if they face additional hurdles due to legislation of the country.

    But that should be investigated.

    If Think Huge could persuade one of the big brokers to put a trading server in the Manchester data centre that houses the signal and VPS servers it would minimise the latency to almost zero.

    Most of them have multiple servers already, so why not put one in Manchester. Simpler than duplicating the whole signal infrastructure in NY.
    It would be good for the broker as they would get lots of business from copier clients that want their orders at the top of the queue.

    Just throwing the idea out there, I expect it will be shot down in flames!

    Will if this goes ahead would you have copier servers in the UK and New York or would you move all to New York. As in future you may have signal providers whose brokers servers are London based.

    Just adding my support for the NY copier option.

    Considering most of the brokers you support have their servers based there, it's really surprising this has not been brought up earlier.
