How to increase your EA execution speed inside your VPS?
For quite a few years, I have been mistaken that EAs will execute at the same speed regardless of whether the MT4 terminal window is minimized or not. I’d usually minimize my MT4 terminals in my VPS because this would save VPS resources, and I thought that since resources are saved, my EAs running in my terminals could run faster.
So I’ve discovered that I am wrong recently. I wondered why my EAs sometimes executed 10 seconds after the signal bar is formed.
Then I discovered the solution. You have to keep all your MT4 terminals maximized! The terminals cannot be running minimized.
Immediately once I kept all my MT4 terminals maximized, my EAs were executing, at worst, 2 second after the signal bar is formed.
So in conclusion, to maximize your EA execution speed on your VPS, keep the MT4 terminal maximized! Not minimized!
