After we started to providing trial for locking arbitrage, we are receiving a lot of feedback from our current and potential customers and we would like to share some information with you. This article I wanted to call “the cry of the soul” because we created a lot of videos, pdf guides about arbitrage trading; published a lot of articles, but when we investigate our users’ problems – we understand that nobody wants to watch, read and learn. Please read this and save your money and our and yours time. Please! Please read this if you want to receive profit like we and our clients.

First problem with very easy solution: please, use recommended VPS. We recommend this vps not because we have any commissions or they are our relatives, we recommend it, because this vps has lowest delay to our feeder because it is cross-connected. We understand that it is possible to find cheaper vps but it is almost impossible to find better vps.

I made these screenshots today on my client’s VPS

Ping

Pic. 1. – ping from MT4 terminal to MT4 server or datacenter

Pic. 2. Ping from our software to our feeder

Arbitrage Software will never work from this VPS because delay 140+50ms will destroy any arbitrage opportunity. Price for this time can change several times.
But ping 0 doesn’t guarantee nothing as well, because ping it not very accurate measurement for arbitrage trading, although this already gives you a chance.

Second problem. You do not need to ask your broker about arbitrage or searching for the broker who accept arbitrage strategy.


Arbitrage Strategy is legal!
Arbitrage is the exploiting of price discrepancies within different markets of a similar or identical assets in order to generate low-risk to no-risk profits, after accounting for transaction and information costs. Arbitrage trading is not only legal in the United States, but should be encouraged, as it contributes to market efficiency. Furthermore, arbitrageurs also serve a useful purpose by acting as intermediaries, providing liquidity in different markets.

In this case you do not need to ask broker because broker not on your side. Broker wants your money! Any profitable strategy is “not legal” for broker. Please understand this. 

Third problem. If you manage money for your clients and use our arbitrage software, it is bad idea to open all accounts via IB (Introducing Broker) link. No patterns for broker!  In this case broker will understand that you use the same profitable strategy for all accounts and flag you and your clients’ accounts. 

Be quiet and smart and you earn yourself not only for life but also for retirement!

Good luck!
