@  manfloy : (09 September 2019 - 11:12 AM) well said.
@  traderpusa : (09 September 2019 - 11:07 AM) at least for the moment, china will hold back because of economic conditions. My guess is they want to involve PLA but simply are not in a position to do so for the moment.
@  traderpusa : (09 September 2019 - 11:05 AM) well, regardless of any agreement between uk and europe, there is still nato is trump doesn't blow it up lol
@  manfloy : (09 September 2019 - 11:04 AM) I am really worried about HK if the PLA phase in this can interrupt the entire chain between FX liquidity and current import / export countries. I understand that we have a bunch of corporations exposed to China, now believe that 99 percent of them are stable in HK because they have a high law. If the PLA gets in, they'll substitute this economic centre with a singapore.
@  manfloy : (09 September 2019 - 11:04 AM) Yeah, they're really a very significant player. I am informed that there is also a lot more than economic, for instance there are a number of military agreements agreed between the GB and the EU, which is serious.
@  traderpusa : (09 September 2019 - 11:02 AM) the UK being part of the EU GDP figures, but not part of the Euro only makes things a bit complicated on how to interpret numbers for trading purposes.
@  traderpusa : (09 September 2019 - 11:00 AM) of course one needs to focus on US being the biggest economy but UK is still up there. https://gyazo.com/42...39df1c7c58d9221
@  manfloy : (09 September 2019 - 10:56 AM) I'm focused on the US, so I don't spend so much on the GB, I'm supposed to study it well since 2015, but something has altered worldwide, literally, it's an enormous step in the world's liquidity and global system, modifications are nice, but they're really colorful.
@  manfloy : (09 September 2019 - 10:56 AM) thanks good reading
@  traderpusa : (09 September 2019 - 10:53 AM) As to China, read this over the weekend : https://apnews.com/6...f75f013bf54e6a9
@  manfloy : (09 September 2019 - 10:51 AM) Spectacular indeed lol, this is huge to be honest
@  traderpusa : (09 September 2019 - 10:47 AM) it's gonna be interesting. MP's are leaving the sinking ship and now also Bercow has resigned. Gonna miss this guy lol

Hey Guys, I’m learning to code in MQL4 and am trying to develop EA’s to automate my two strategies to run on a VPS or dedicated PC.


There are a couple threads on this topic on BOE but the users and creators of those threads have long gone from BOE.


Anyways, I’ll throw this out there to see if anyone on BOE has been down this track before. Otherwise Ill check out some of the forex Forums.


My questions:


1. What VPS is best?  Subscription based or Free?
2. Pros and cons of VPS location. Is distance of VPS or dedicated PC from your broker’s server make any difference - e.g. I setup a dedicated PC at home but my broker’s server is on the other side of the world? I suspect there would be some latency issues? Which is better or more efficient?
3. Minimum machine specs for running multiple MT4’s
4. How to block prying eyes if using a VPS or dedicated PC?
5. Pros and cons of fully managed, part managed vs self-managed VPS
6. Other suggestions?


Cheers and have a nice one.

1. Paid VPS are best anyway.

2. Well you answered it. Try to avoid latency issues as much. Also you should remember that there are not one broker in the world and not all brokers have servers in one place.

3. Multiple EA with higher calculations might need a slightly better specs. But think it this way, you can run MT4 in a laptop/pc with 1GB RAM just fine, right? Just think of the VPS as your computer and you'll know how much you'll need.

4. prying eyes? You mean those who takes away source codes etc? How about avoiding so called Forex VPS as starter?

5. They can tell better, https://www.websitem...r-pros-amp-cons

6. Why not this? https://www.tradingh...ate-server-vps/


Just my noobish reply. Take care. ;)

Thanks Ned.


Much appreciated.


I've done some more research on this topic and it would appear that the dedicated PC wins hands down for me.


Cheers and have a nice one.
