FXCM sent the following email to its clients. It is now offering a free VPS to clients using the Metatrader 4 platform. This should prove as a great offering as high frequency traders (most of them trade on MT4) are typically required to pay the high costs associated with the ownership and maintenance of VPS servers. VPS servers allow these traders to run their algorithms much more effectively and with much less interruptions and with low latency resulting in better performance and eventually better trading results.
The ability to be able to use the VPS service for free will probably attract many high frequency traders to FXCM.
This is the email:
FXCM LTD has been listening to our MT4 trading community and we have now expanded our MetaTrader 4 offering. We are proud to offer you a free Virtual Private Server (VPS) for 12 months to use with your MetaTrader 4 trading account. Actively traded accounts will be offered free VPS beyond the 12 month period, which is open to all FXCM MT4 accounts.
Virtual Private Server Advantages:
Flexibility: Turn off your computer and Internet and execute your Expert Advisor
Potentially Lower Latency Times / Faster Execution: This applies mainly to clients living outside the United States or clients with lower speed internet connections. The VPS will be hosted at a datacenter in Boston shaving off precious seconds in transmitting data between your computer and FXCM’s servers.
Remote Access: Log into your platform from any computer even if MetaTrader 4 is not installed.
