Ok, so I've subscribed to two signals but often missing on some trades - one cost me $80.

 I know one option is to have my trade account with the same broker as the signal.

But can I still use a VPS from MQL5.com or should it be with the broker ?

Thanks. Andrew.

You can only turn off your PC, if you have implemented a VPS (Virtual Hosting) service.

The easiest way is through the MT platform, using the integrated MQL5 solution.

Right click on your account number of your Navigator window and Register a Virtual Server:

And this is from MetaQuotes -

Tell me, please, ways how to reduce delays to subscribers if the average transaction is 7-10 points?

As an option, use MetaTrader Hosting on the nearest server to your broker and with trading robots:

  • The robot will conduct the transaction as quickly as possible
  • Your terminal will receive the response from the trading server as quickly as possible
  • Also quickly (usually less than 1 ms) the terminal will deliver a signal to our Cloud network
  • subscribers who sit on vps hosting will instantly receive signals and quickly replicate them on their brokers

The question is asked absolutely correctly. It is the signal provider that is responsible for most of the initial delays. And if the provider uses home Internet, then the delay it makes to dozens (God forbid hundreds) milliseconds is already very difficult to fix even high-speed virtual servers of subscribers.

Therefore, providers who want to get more subscribers and show less slip, it is critically important to transfer their robots to vps hosting.

Of course, if the provider uses manual trading, then vps does not help.

Thanks Sergey.

I already use a MQL VPS. 

My question was twofold.

When subscribing to a signal, should my trade account be with the same broker as the provider?

Should I use a VPS provided by that broker also, or is MQL VPS ok?

It is recommending for your account to be on same broker with the signal provider (in case the signal provider is using scalping for example).
It is not obligatory, it is just recommendation only.

Besides, there is recommendation for signal providers to use MQL VPS.
And for subscribers as well (to use MQL VPS).

So, when you are selecting the signal to subscribe - it is good to know: the signal provider is using MQL VPS or not. If not so he can miss some trades ... you will miss some trades ... the signal to open the trade will not be going - from his Metatrader - to his broker and - to you by ms seconds ...

Program to check latency between VPS and broker's server

Hi,

I want to check latency between my VPS and broker's server.

Is there a free program?

Can you recommend one?

Or what other way do you know to check the latency?

Kind regards

Just left-click on the Connection Status icon in the bottom right of MetaTrader and you will see a pop-up context menu showing you the latency values of various Servers available for your Broker. Then you can select the fastest one to your liking. You can also re-scan as values may fluctuate.
