VPS vs Dedicated Trading PC at home?

Hi Everyone!

I am new to trading with EA's and have a Micro VPS through Amazon AWS running 1 MT4 terminal and it can barely keep up! The ping is around 200ms to the server in NY (I'm in Australia) and I get about the same ping at home.

So I was wondering, does a delay really make that much of a difference with a trading robot? If not, I will just build a dedicated trading pc that will run off my NBN at home :)

Any thoughts or recommendations would be amazing!

Ps, looking to run 4 terminals max and hopefully a MT5 terminal if I can find a decent robot to test on it :)

Hi TradedrFoes, Thanks for the input, I now have a laptop that will just be used as a trading machine on 24/5 but I also have a VPS that I will start running 1 bot on through AWS

Hi, i've also bad experience with VPS within privateWAN respectively DesktopPC/Laptop because you have higher latency and are not online 24/7. I personally think every low 10MBit/s dedicated line is better than „PC at home“ (y)
