For sure, when on vacation and attempting to operate your MT4 from e.g. a laptop, the effects of execution slippage due to server latency, and connection issues, become incalculable. Imagine your internet connection cutting out in the middle of an extremely profitable trade, right before you need to exit the position! Potentially incurred losses due to latency and connection issues might be devastating:
FOREX VPS IS A VERY EFFECTIVE WAY OF MITIGATING OPERATIONAL RISK IN FOREX TRADING !
Execution slippage on only one non-critical trade can cost you more than a whole year’s worth of your very own, secure, premium VPS real estate, endowed with ultra-fast connection speed – always running, transmitting and receiving market and execution signals at all times! Saving on a Forex VPS might be the worst investment decision you ever make …
So if you claim your own VPS real estate in a location close to most broker server centers, then you have already eliminated the main problem causing execution slippage: Your trades will be executed from your MT4, which is located on YOUR VPS, CLOSE TO YOUR BROKER’S SERVER CENTER !
