Hi fxwisdom1@gmail.com,

Both numbers are important. The Proxy latency is the latency between your computer and our proxy in New York and Server latency is the  between your computer and our server in London.

Thank you for your reply sir.

0. Which number impacts order/trade execution?

1. Which latency is for trading execution?

2. Which is for chart price?

3. Is it right to think that the server latency includes proxy latency?

4. Is the trading execution as follow?

cTrader Client's Platform -> Proxy -> Server -> LPs -> Server -> Proxy -> cTrader Client's Platform

5. Is the chart pricing flow like this?

LPs -> Server -> Proxy -> cTrader client's platform

 

Thank you

Hi fxwisdom1@gmail.com,

The total time a message needs to travel from your application to our servers is the Server latency. Therefore this is the number you should consider. Your assumption about the flow is correct.
