Order Execution Latency

 

Order Execution Latency

Hello Traders,

I am wondering how can I improve my connection execution latency. I am a compulsive scalper and I have noticed lately that closing a trade is taking for some reason longer than usual, actually after switching to Gold II account. My strategy relies on exploiting liquidity vacuums situations and I really need to enter and exit at specific prices. It happens when I click the red X it will take anywhere from 2 to 3 seconds to close.

Right now today 07/04/2018 at 17:20 GMT my platform trading latency is 52ms and the quote latency is around 399 ms.

Does anyone know where are Apiary servers located here in the US? I know they offer the VPS service but I can find other servers way cheaper than that.

I can rent a VPS geographically close to one of the servers and see if connection improves.

Regards,

Ernesto

Anyone? :)

I think it would be better to call customer support. Maybe they can guide me.

Thank you

Hi nj , were you able to fix it? Thank you

I've had a similar issue as well. I think someone mentioned having multiple charts running or having a lot of bars displayed at a time could be the culprit.

While having a VPS 'next door' to Apiary's servers makes sense, particularly if you are auto trading, you are still going to get a degree of latency with your management software i.e. Microsoft's Remote Desktop, or similar. If you live in the US this shouldn't be too much of a problem, but if you are an overseas client, like me, this can be an issue.

Nonetheless, I have a dedicated trade server in Phoenix, Arizona with Codero, and am more than happy with it, and them.

Apiary uses AWS servers with load balancing.

I also have the same latency numbers and switched to fiber thinking it would improve the numbers, but it did not. I believe these numbers are a product of the servers giving us the info, and not us as individuals. Just my opinion.

Thank you all for the answers. Somehow I missed the posts and the system does not send any notifications.

No notifications per say but usually, show up on your homepage, middle left. The rest maybe 40% you have to look for in the forum lists buy subject matter.

I had just recently changed my PC and thought it was my new set up causing the problems. I have experienced on occasions entry & exit delays in excess of 3 seconds, occasionally the command has not been recognized.
