I suggest you all check the new cloud VPS line of Hetzner which is a pretty amazing deal.
10Gbps internet bandwidth, NVMe SSD, overall high specs for a bargain.
Even more amazing, I find their top of the line dedicated servers to be the shit. They keep up with technological components new releases at a frequent pace.
For close to the same price than their highest VPS, you could get either their EX41-SSD or EX41S-SSD here
Then for utmost beast, go either for their EX61-NVMe or from the AX line, with the AX60-SSD which is what I own. I tested both machines and I found that the AMD 16 threads CPU was better at multi-tasking and that the NVMe SSD was not adding much value one could feel (there is a point when disk speed cannot go faster than what your CPU can process) over regular Sata SSD
This is what I get from my environnement
To save some on further costs, I suggest you install your own image of Windows with a licence you’ll own yourself, through this easy tutorial, which might be approximately auto-translated sorry.
Datacenter located at the east of Germany, 21ms ping to Darwinex which is plenty enough. That said, a very arguable topic since Juan in its last webinar advised to think outside the box and sometimes add latency up to 1 full second to your EAs.
Indeed, when all signals trigger within the same milliseconds from the end of candles for example, then what you end up from speed competition is actually to act at the very worst time at a sequence where liquidity is gone from everyone pumping it.
I know that as a discretionnary trader the end and start of candles can represent pretty severe sequences with gaps in volatility.
That is something to take into account. Trust it or not, there are platforms who helps you to add a delay to your actions for a purpose... so being cross-connected to LD4 Equinix is really more of a commercial joke than it will add your retail trading value for a couple ms gained.
By the way, they got a 14 days cancellation period within which you could get refunded, including setup fee. A good way to trial their operations
Otherwise, german rigourous efficient service. Neat user interface called Robot, which you can program via API ! Nothing more good to say. I don’t regret my move away from OVH
