If you have a desktop PC and not a laptop, you’re pretty much stuck trading wherever your computer is housed. While there are alternatives these days, maybe you don’t feel like purchasing a mobile device or a laptop, or maybe your broker doesn’t support mobile trading. Perhaps you just don’t like the interface. Perhaps your broker doesn’t offer an online trading platform and requires a download. In that case, you can connect to your platform from anywhere as long as you have a network connection where you can log onto your VPS to trade, even a hotel or internet café.
Trade even if your power goes out
If you rely on automation for your trading, you can continue to trade even if your power goes out. If your automated system performs well even without you monitoring it, you can let it continue making money for you even if you can’t get online.
Trade at any time of day
Since you’re not confined to your desk and you can trade anywhere, and since your system can execute trades even if your computer is off, you can feel more comfortable trading even while you’re asleep.
VPS systems offered by the best companies also come with the best security. Managed VPS servers are checked regularly to make sure that they are functioning, and most companies guarantee 99.9 percent uptime. You also generally receive antivirus and other tools to ensure your system is safe from vulnerabilities.
Reduce your slippage
This is one way in which a VPS server can benefit you even if you place all your entries manually and don’t use automated trading. A VPS can execute your trades more quickly than your computer can because it is much faster transmitting the orders. The result is that you experience less of a delay and less slippage. As we all know, slippage costs money, sometimes a lot of it, so this is a great way to reduce your losses and unpredictability.
