VPS Built-in with FP Markets
FP Markets has partnered with TradersColo and BeeksFX VPS, to provide a customized low latency solution for the traders.
The FP Markets Edition VPS seamlessly connects traders to the Equinix NY4 grid using cutting edge technology.
This server side solution includes state of the art hardware and virtualization technology delivering a solution without the cost or complexity of trading clustering solutions.
The core infrastructure is housed in the Equinix New York Data Center, benefiting Active and Algorithmic (EA) traders.
If you are running EAs, it is vital that your platform is connected to FP Markets servers 24 hours a day.
Using a VPS solution reduces any concerns about your computer shutting down, broadband not being available or even dropping coffee on your computer!
The key benefits to a VPS are:
1. VPS is always on 24/7
The VPS runs all day, every day.
That means you should never miss your target price.
2. Access to VPS account remotely
You can always access your VPS. There are two main options for this.
Firstly, you can get access through the standard windows Remote Desktop Connection software.
This gives you full access to the server and enables you to set-up your EAs as well as install any other useful services that sit alongside MT4.
The second option is to monitor your account in real time using FP Markets’ mobile platform.
FP Markets believes this may be a more convenient method to monitor your VPS while on the move.
3. Lower Latency for faster execution
By using a professional data centre, it is very likely that the data connection speed can be faster than your home broadband.
That could mean your execution speed is better than you are able to get at home.
FP Markets has selected a provider located close to their own MT4 servers to maximise the speed of your trading.
4. Reduce Power (electricity) Bills
Because the VPS is running in a data centre, you don’t have to leave your computer on at home which means that you can turn off all your devices at home while still being safe in the knowledge that your trading strategies are continuing.
* CFD Service. Your capital is at risk.
