My Das Trader is showing a ping of around 300 ms. It gets higher during the opening and usually lower 30 minutes after the open. Charts on Das are usually delayed for up to a minute. Level 2 and tape which are the most important thing for me, are not readable at all. There was a time when i was sending my order using a hotkey and nothing happen. A minute later, the order was accepted, filled and closed after hitting a SL. All happened at once. I've heard of traders using VPN from US to trade. Can anyone trading from Asia share their experiences if they are using VPN and if so, which provider and location of the server to help reduce latency to NYSE. Appreciate any feedback/solution.
