What is VPS Trading?

A Virtual Private Server, more commonly known as VPS, is a virtual computer that functions independently, just as a real computer does. A VPS is specifically designed according to your needs and is especially beneficial to forex traders due to the security and flexibility it provides.

It is permanently connected to the internet, which both facilitates the execution process and contributes to a safer and more stable trading environment.

Obstacles such as computer viruses, connection failures and power cuts can be absolutely detrimental to a trade, especially during periods of market volatility. Using a VPS can alleviate these issues, making it an ideal technical environment for automated trading.

FXTM offers VPS on both our live and demo accounts, so wherever you are in your trading travels, we’ve got you covered.

VPS Hosting Q & A

Looking to learn more about VPS trading? Look no further.

Q1. Why should I use a VPS?

There are several advantages to using a VPS for automated trading, such as the continuous internet connection and a faster execution speed. Some VPS services are extremely powerful, offering significantly higher CPU and Ram speeds — meaning you can react to market events in a millisecond.

Q2. What is the best VPS for forex trading?

Fortunately, the MetaTrader software does not require plenty of server recourses to operate smoothly. A good VPS for trading should have at least 1 CPU, 1GB RAM and circa 25GB HHD. However, the higher the server specifications (RAM/CPU) and the faster the host’s internet speed, the faster the execution speed.

Q3. Is a VPS reliable?

Yes, assuming you choose a competent provider. Not all providers are of equal quality. Should they experience technical difficulties or overburden their servers, the performance of the VPS will ultimately be negatively impacted. However, FXTM collaborates with one of the leading forex VPS hosts worldwide, ensuring a superior service.

Q4. How can I get access to a VPS with FXTM?

Contact your Account Service Manager, who will inform you if you meet the criteria for free VPS access and tell you how to proceed if so.

Q5. Can I have multiple accounts on a VPS?

Yes, you can —but you should be aware that for your expert advisors or copy trading program to run efficiently, a single account should be connected to a single MT4 instance at any given time. You may have multiple accounts running on multiple MT4 instances, but these must be set up with caution as you need to consider the availability of your free server resources (RAM/CPU).
