What is VPS?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server, and it is normally used by EA/Algorithm Traders.
MT4 does not let EAs or trailing stops to work in its platform if the platform itself is closed or the account is logged out.
This is to avoid the system/programs to manage your accounts when you are not aware of them to manage your funds, so this is to avoid one kind of financial risks.
But by using the VPS you can run your EAs/Algorithm Programs 24/7 without stop.
So you do not worry about the internet connection of yours, nor the amount of electricity consumed.
How the VPS works?
VPS is just an another server for yourself.
Basically if you like to use the VPS, the VPS provider will setup a server(it is like a virtual computer) and give you the access to its server.
Then you will need to get into the VPS from your computer, so you will have another computer running on internet which you can access from your computer.
All you need to do is to set up your MT4 account and your EA in that VPS screen.
VPS does not take a rest at all, but runs 24/7.
