Trade Processing and How Can Using a VPS Improve Execution?

How do trades get executed?

Trades are executed by routing the trade request to a matching engine where Valutrades can execute with our liquidity providers in the same geographical location.

 

Where is Valutrades' matching engine?

Valutrades' execution for both the Hong Kong and New York servers is controlled by a trade matching engine hosted in an Equinix NY4 data centre. This is required due to the fact that our Tier 1 banks and liquidity providers provide pricing from their NY4 matching engines.

 

How can I make sure my trades are executed quickly wherever I am in the world?

If you require the fastest possible execution time to avoid latency and slippage then you are able to purchase a Virtual Private Server (VPS) in New York.

 

What is a VPS?

A VPS is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. These VPS are in New York and have a network connection to our MT4, therefore there is no internet connection and this allows for the fastest possible connection.

 

You can qualify for a free VPS at Valutrades, if you execute more than 10 lots per month.
