Does your broker offer free VPS for algorithmic trading?

Does your broker offer free VPS for algorithmic trading?

The popularity of algorithmic and social trading keeps growing, as is confirmed by our website statistics: every month, our users purchase thousands of automated trading robots from the MQL5.com Market and subscribe to thousands of signals. Naturally, brokers have paid attention to this large audience of potential clients.

To attract more users, companies create new offerings for traders utilizing robots and trading signals. One of the most efficient strategies, concerns the availability of a free of charge VPS for round-the-clock trading — in this case, brokers provide servers for algorithmic trading at their own expense. To assist companies in sponsoring hosting servers for their traders, we have launched a new service entitled "Sponsored Virtual Hosting for MetaTrader 5".

With this service, any broker can offer a free virtual machine to their traders, according to an individual, commercially viable strategy. For example, RoboForex offers free VPS to the clients who open a verified MetaTrader 5 account and deposit USD 500. The company representatives believe that the service gives traders the opportunity to extend their trading horizons. "This is an extremely important point for us because the availability and quality of our services is the priority," explains Mr. Robert Stephenson, Chief Business Officer of RoboForex. "We believe that our joint efforts will boost customer interest in trading."

Sponsored Virtual Hosting for MetaTrader 5

Our native ready-made specialized MetaTrader VPS solution for social and algorithmic trading has become extremely popular among our trading platform users. According to our statistics, users have rented hundreds of thousands of servers for failure-free,round-the-clock trading.

Why is our VPS solution so attractive for users? Because it offers better trade execution times by ensuring a network latency of less than 5 milliseconds for 82% of all brokerage servers. More than a dozen hosting points are located around the world, and provide optimal access to trading servers: London, Moscow, Amsterdam, Falkenstein, Frankfurt, New York, Chicago, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mumbai, Sao Paulo and Johannesburg.

57% of broker servers can be accessed with a ping of less than 2 ms

57% of broker servers can be accessed with a ping of less than 2 ms

Our servers are hosted by reliable providers to guarantee a maximum uptime of 99.99%. You can be certain that your strategies will run consistently 24/7. Smart resource allocation algorithms ensure that each trading platform receives enough resources on a virtual machine: up to 3 GB of RAM, up to 16 GB of hard disk space and several CPUs are allocated on demand.

Furthermore, MetaTrader VPS does not require extra connection or configuration steps: it is a built-in solution which can be managed directly from the trading platform. Robots and subscriptions can be easily migrated to a virtual server in a few clicks.

Of course, you can rent a VPS directly via your terminal for USD 15 per month. Even in this case, you will benefit from the MetaTrader VPS subscription, as its cost can be completely paid off by better execution times. You can additionally benefit from a long-term rent with a monthly fee of only USD 13.17. However, we all like to receive gifts. With the new Sponsored VPS service for brokers, every trader can receive a reliable virtual server for round-the-clock trading for free.

Find out from your broker on which terms they are offering a free of charge VPS. Even if they do not yet provide this opportunity, you can show your interest in the hosting service and encourage your broker to include the free VPS option into their offering. It is a win-win deal: you will get a reliable, high-performance environment for trading robots and signals, while your broker will benefit from greater customer loyalty.

MetaQuotes certification helps Market Equity employees get promoted

Last year, MetaQuotes launched a new service — certification for specialists working with the MetaTrader 5 trading platform. We are pleased to announce that the quality of knowledge tested is greatly appreciated by the brokers.

Companies which have already went through the certification process for their employees have seen the benefits:

  • Staff training. In actual practice, some skills come in handy more often than others. Rarely used knowledge inevitably becomes forgotten over time. The certification covers all aspects of working with the platform and helps to refresh knowledge. After the exam, your employee will be ready to deal with any task related to MetaTrader 5. “Regardless of our experience, we still do not face the platform configuration in its entirety every day”, said Maxim Apanaskevich from FBS.

  • New knowledge. Many brokers' employees admitted that they learned something new about the platform during the preparation and are now applying that knowledge in their daily work, as noted by Roman Kovalenko from Exinity.

  • Official confirmation of qualification. The certification helps in assuring employee competency and broad understanding of concepts.

The MetaQuotes certification program has received a new level of recognition recently. Some companies have implemented it into their career pathways, and thus certification directly affects career progression and in return employee income. One recent example is Market Equity, which has made the certification mandatory for employees seeking a promotion.

Adnan Khalaf, Operations Director at Market Equity

Adnan Khalaf, Operations Director at Market Equity

"The certification helped not only to maintain knowledge, but to also train employees, as the exam is a valuable source of information", says Mr Adnan Khalaf, Operations Director at Market Equity. As a result, experienced employees became team leaders after getting the certificate, while new employees were promoted from entry to professional level. Passing the MetaQuotes certification has become a promotion requirement in some specific company departments.

The certification is available for three thematic areas: platform administrator, client manager and dealer.

The certification has two stages. First, candidates take the online test consisting of 80 questions. Here they need to choose the right answer from several options. The passing score is 70%. The candidates have two free attempts. The second stage is a video interview, during which a MetaQuotes employee tests the candidate's knowledge verbally. This usually takes about 30 minutes. The second stage costs USD 300. Upon successful completion of both stages, each participant receives an official personalized certificate from MetaQuotes.
