Good evening, I need to assess which VPS service I should go for since I am trading from Norway, Europe and trade mostly Forex and Futures on the US markets, where the physical location for the exchanges would be in Chicago. Since I am using IB (Interactive Brokers) as my online broker, I would need a fast connection to Interactive Brokers Chicago server for order execution. My priority is fast graphical GUI experience when I am connecting to the VPS, and the best stability I can have. Since I will be trading mostly on 15min charts, I do not need the absolute highest latency below 1 ms to the IB server. I see it like this: Option 1: Account location: I have my IB account, at the Chicago server in US, because I trade mostly FX and Futures. VPS location: I get a VPS in Europe to get a faster and better graphical user experience when connecting to the VPS with as little lagging latency as possible. Option 2: Account location: I have my IB account, at the European server, because I live in Europe, even if I am entirely focused on US securities. VPS location: I also get a VPS in Europe to get a faster and better graphical user experience when connecting to the VPS with as little lagging latency as possible. Question 1: Question is if it is better that I am using the European IB server that still needs to connect to the exchanges in Chicago (not sure how you are routing your connection with the exchanges) when I am only trading FX and Futures, or if I should use the Chicago IB server, despite the fact where my VPS connection is? Question 2: Which VPS windows server should I use that has the absolute best stability for a low price? I do not want to overpay. I want the best of two worlds combined, so I dont experience much lagging when connecting to my VPS, and get as fast order execution with IB as possible when trading FX and Futures.
