Do I still need to use VPS?

 

Do I still need to use VPS?

A long time ago, Alveo wasn't triggering my stops when it wasn't running, so I started trading in a VPS so that Alveo would run constantly. Has this bug been fixed, such that I can run Alveo on my regular computer and turn it off and still feel confident that the stops will trigger while it's off, or should I keep running it on a VPS?

Thanks!

Does vps cost additional to set up, I have had some same issues with not closing out profits and stop losses

Many of them cost money, but you can actually get 1 year free trials from Amazon, Google and I think Microsoft, but I'm not sure about that one.

So it still doesn't reliably trigger stops when alveo is not running?

So do most people turn off Alveo and trust that the stops will still be triggered?

I do, and I do have issues sometimes. I typically use MT5 in my phone to monitor the tr rades during the day (I do have an 8 to 5 job...) and close trades (if needed) from the app

I don't think you need to... I do. There are many advantages to running Alveo on a VPS besides what you mention. My VPS costs $20/month which I feel is a quite reasonable CODB.

Peace,
