Latency

Trade latency refers to the interval of time between an order being placed and its execution. Lower latency is desirable as it means that a trader has a higher possibility of securing the price displayed for an instrument before the market moves. FxPro’s algorithmic traders can reduce the latency of their trading by subscribing to our VPS service. By loading their algorithms onto our Virtual Private Server they can reduce their trade latency to just 1 millisecond and run their algorithms around the clock without even needing to have their own trading terminal open.
