What is Latency?

If you value trade prices being on or closer to the quote price, lower latency is critical.

Lower latency. Faster execution. Better pricing

Serious traders know that when its time to execute your trade, there's no time to wait.  That's why AxiTrader invests heavily in behind-the-scenes network technology to drastically lower latency.  This results in superior pricing that's delivered faster, refreshes faster, has a greater depth of liquidity and experiences fewer outages.

Latency matters

Lower Costs

Being able to provide lower latency can significantly reduce the chance of slippage, minimising your trading costs compared to a standard connection.

Faster Refresh

Lower latency improves our system refresh speed and gives you increased confidence in the pricing you receive, particularly during major events (e.g. elections) characterised by major volatility and/or low liquidity.

Fewer Outages

Because our pricing engine connects directly with 20+ liquidity sources, we’re not dependent on
ECN-style technologies. That means we can offer pricing that’s delivered faster, refreshes faster,
has more depth and fewer outages.

Route Optimisation

Some networks slow you down. Our’s speeds you up.

By investing in cutting edge technology, we actively manage the path your trade takes through the Internet, ensuring your trade takes the least congested route every time. Combined with the ability to speed up the client side of your MT4 platform, when you execute with AxiTrader you can be confident your trade will be delivered faster.

Faster than ECN

We think ECN connections are too slow for today’s traders; layers of networks, cables, firewalls and third party platforms only add latency which costs the trader. So what do we do? We go direct to the liquidity provider who you trade with.

Using co-located servers in key locations around the world, we utilise a shorter, therefore faster, connection. This simple approach results in better pricing, faster execution and fewer outages.

Pricing

The key to better pricing

The closer you are physically to the centre of market action, the less distance your trade has to travel through a network, therefore the more accurate your price will be.

 

Lower Costs

Being able to provide lower latency can significantly reduce the chance of slippage, minimising your trading costs compared to a standard connection.

Faster Refresh

Lower latency improves our system refresh speed and gives you increased confidence in the pricing you receive, particularly during major events (e.g. elections) characterised by major volatility and/or low liquidity.

A superior setup. No comparison.

No matter what front end device or connection you use, our specialised low latency network supercharges your back end execution. That means you’ll get faster speeds and greater reliability than the same setup in the same conditions on a different network.
