Question for daytraders: what's your plan if there's an internet outage? Had a really long and extremely frustrating outage this morning that killed probably around $600 of potential profits based on decisions I would have made (was about to go long on FB when it happened) and I'm still venting about it. I have no backup plan. All I could do was call my ISP and keep asking when they were going to fix the damn thing. Having a technician coming later today to look at it. Anyway, possible solution I could think of was to go use a public wifi, of course for obvious security reasons that would be extremely risky. I've heard you can use a VPN to encrypt your data and protect your privacy, but I'm not tech savvy enough to figure that out all in one morning. Does anyone else use VPNs? Does anyone have a plan for if their internet goes out during trading hours? Friend's house, VPN, anything? I'd like to know what options I could set up in the future, God forbid I get in a large short position one day and the internet cuts out before I can set up a stop-loss or something. Also how often do you get outages where you live? In Arizona it's like twice per year on average, but I'd like to be somewhere where it's zero.
