What processor is better to choose a VPS-server for Forex

MetaTrader 4, which is also known as MT4, is an ERP platform (Electronic Trading Platform) widely used by traders for Forex trading. It was released in 2005 by MetaQuotes Software. Below we will discuss why it is better to use MetaTrader 4 on a VPS-server with a single-core processor than on a dual-core one. We will also find out how to improve the performance of MT4 installed on the VPS-server and reduce the delays when using trading robots that traders face when trading both on VPS and on a home computer.

The problem of delays in trading can occur if your MetaTrader 4 terminal is running on a VPS-server with a multi-core processor. From a technical point of view, the problem is that the MT4 trading terminal is a 32-bit software application, and this creates problems for efficient operation on multi-core processors.

In most cases, problems arise only if you run several MetaTrader 4 trading platforms on your VPS or PC at the same time. The multi-core processor on VPS is a virtual processor, which means that these processor cores are not real physical processors. They simulate processor cores for processing MT4 applications.

There are three ways to improve the performance of your MetaTrader 4 application:

  • You need to configure all the processes terminal.exe to use the same processor core. It is important that all MT4 processes are bound to the same core. This will load all the MetaTrader 4 processes on one processor core, and the task Manager will display 100% load on this processor. Don’t worry, because these are virtual cores that run on a single physical processor on your hosting provider’s server. This way, all the work will be done by a single physical processor, and the MT4 application will not need to switch between multiple cores and, therefore, work faster.
  • You need to assign for each process terminal.exe a specific processor core. In this case, no more terminals should be installed on VPS than the processor cores.
  • If your VPS-server has a single-core processor, try to close all unnecessary applications and remove unnecessary expert advisors and indicators from your MetaTrader 4 terminal so that it works faster.

In most cases, the problem of delays in trading is not always associated with an incorrectly configured VPS-server for Forex, most often the problem is on the broker’s side, but since we want to exclude even the slightest possibility of an error, it is worth checking your trading equipment.
