TL; DR: Singapore-based Trading FX VPS offers enterprise-level VPS and dedicated server options designed for traders operating in foreign exchange markets. The company provides traders with customizable solutions for complex automated trading tasks. Trading FX VPS invests in high-quality servers and promises sub-millisecond latency with 100% uptime. It offers three main service plans designed for novice to expert traders.
Foreign currencies constitute the world’s most valuable trading market, where daily turnover hit $6.6 trillion in 2019, according to figures from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). That outpaces the most prominent stock exchanges — including the NASDAQ Composite, which has an average daily volume of around $200 billion — by multiple orders of magnitude.
The foreign exchange (Forex) market, with its vast size and value, shows no sign of slowing. In fact, all indications point to it growing even more. The IMARC Group forecasts a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% over the next five years, leading to a market value of $10.2 trillion by 2026.
One compelling reason for the Forex market’s ongoing surge is that it never sleeps. Currencies trade at exchanges based in several cities, including New York, Chicago, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Singapore, and Sydney 24 hours a day.
But while winning trades require market insight and predictive acumen, success depends on quick responses to market opportunities on international high-frequency trading exchanges.
And higher speeds equate to lower latency. For years, digital communications technology providers have tried to innovate near zero latency products to provide traders with instantaneous responsiveness — and they’ve gotten close.
Trading FX VPS is a managed dedicated Forex VPS hosting platform for new and advanced Forex traders that provides close to the optimal experience. It offers various VPS hosting plans customized for complex automated trading requirements. The Singapore-based company was founded in 2014, and it is committed to using the highest performance servers available to provide customers with close to sub-millisecond latency and 100% availability.
“If you are a trader or fund manager, everything happens in real time, so guaranteed uptime has to be a given. And ultra-low latency is essential,” said Ace Zhuo, Sales & Marketing Director at Trading FX VPS. “Typically hosting services providers cannot provide anything like the low sub-millisecond latency levels traders must have. We can. And we do.”
Servers Run Fast CPUs in Top Brand Hardware for Lower Latency
Trading FX VPS distinguishes itself through competitor analysis. The company purchases VPS services from other market players to find out how well they perform and research shared limitations.
“We learn a lot from doing that. We discovered that most VPS providers had one thing in common. They typically run on lower-generation server CPUs clocking at 2.4GHz,” said Ace. “That might be adequate for many hosted applications but would certainly not deliver the kind of power low-latency services demand. All Trading FX VPS servers run on CPUs capable of speeds in excess of 3.5GHz — and we can run close to 5.0GHz.”
Trading FX VPS only deploys servers from topline brands like Dell, IBM, and HPE. According to Ace, the company does that because having a diverse range of hardware providers decreases the risk of breakdown. And Trading FX VPS updates its hardware as faster server technology becomes available.
Trading FX VPS equips its servers with SSD/NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory express) RAID10 disk arrays built on high-speed SAS and SSD drives. They provide access to information 10 to 20 times faster than most hosting providers using SATA drives.
“NVMe drives are taking over, and we’re ahead of the game in that respect,” Ace said. “Moving to NVMe was a huge step for us and our customers. And we made the transition without increasing any of our established prices. We aim to keep performance up while still offering affordable prices for traders.”
Datacenters Near Exchanges Enhance Customer Experience
Trading FX VPS offers both dedicated and virtual server options connected to high-frequency trading networks. Its dedicated servers run on Quad-Core Intel Turbo Series CPUs and are available at its datacenter facilities in New York, Chicago, London, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt.
“Our datacenters came from distinguished companies — namely, Equinix, Leaseweb, and Internap,” said Ace. “The facilities we use around the world are selected with cross-connection to major brokers and liquidity providers in mind. Our servers connect to high-speed, premium-class channels. We offer tremendous performance — it’s what we believe makes our service one of the best on the market.”
The company’s dedicated Forex servers are ideal for running various functions and features, including trading software, complicated automated algorithms, and intensive trade applications.
Trading FX VPS offers virtualization OS options, including Windows 2012, Windows 2016 and Windows 2019.
“We offer guaranteed resources for all our VPS,” said Ace. “We support Hyper-V Virtualization, and we can guarantee 100% pure dedicated resources with full isolation between each VPS operation.”
Trading FX VPS provides its services through three main pricing plans. Its Standard VPS Plan provides one core CPU, Hyper V Virtualization, antivirus and malware protection, and unlimited traffic. The mid-range Advanced VPS Plan has two core CPUs, and its OS options include Windows 2012, 2016, and 2019.
The high-end Expert VPS Plan has four core CPUs, antivirus and malware protection, and unlimited traffic.
Would-be Forex traders can try before they buy with a seven-day Trial Plan. The Trial Plan also includes Trading FX VPS’s standard 24/7 customer support commitment.
Growing Forex Traders Receive Premiere Services at Affordable Prices
Forex trading can be an all-or-nothing prospect, and servers that provide ultra-high latency and high uptime guarantees are critical. Trading FX VPS understands that the market attracts entrants at all stages of the trading experience spectrum.
According to BrokerNotes, there are now some 9.6 million online traders worldwide — that equates to one in every 781 people. They constitute a growing mass market searching for high-quality dedicated server and VPS platforms at prices they can afford. Trading FX VPS is well-positioned to tap into that demand.
The company has established exacting requirements for the quality of server hardware it has built its business on. That could prove a challenging model to maintain and place pressure on the company’s hardware upgrade cycles as faster servers become available. Then again, as the technology gets closer to making zero latency a reality, Trading FX VPS plans to leverage its existing assets to expand into the latest technology.
Ace said the company is committed to finding ways to augment its revenue streams by enabling selected customers to buy into its business model. It plans to use a utility token-based direct investment initiative.
“As well as offering optimum quality of service, we also want Trading FX VPS to be known for its optimum value of service,” said Ace. “We want to do our best to help the world’s Forex traders out there, who, going forward, could be both our customers and our investors.”
