Swissquote server location and latency: Featured broker within 2.21ms.

In this post we will be reviewing Swissquote and identifying the best server location for them. We understand that one of the struggles as a Forex trader is reducing the amount of slippage that happens when you execute a trade. If it takes longer for your broker to receive your trade, you get in the market later and this costs your profit, or even worse causes you to lose money. at FXVPS we make sure that doesn’t become an issue by having our VPS servers directly adjacent to the same DATACENTER as the brokers. Thats how we can provide you with the lowest latency in the market.

It’s a great online solution! I really appreciated the service and low price. The multi accounting with one IBAN number and 4 linked account chf, EUR, USD & XAU. Note I don’t know if is possible to add more currencies with this IBAN ? The banking solutions and payment are also modern and simple to use. The virtual debit card is also working very well with the wallet application of Google. I trust as Swissquote is in advance with cryptocurrency although in this domain the things is changing very fast!



Almost 2 months that I am trying to transfer my shares to another bank with no success. Many recalls by letter, call and online messages did not help. They are saying it is being finalized but nothing happens. I feel my equities are trapped.

SQ is a great online bank, all my assets are in there and the support team is really helpful. So overall for my needs is the top. Unfortunately, the major CONS is the high cost of the Swiss federal stamp/tax for trading, despite SQ has massively dropped the buy/sell commission and this makes SQ not as attractive as other competitors. Cash transfers are as well not as cheap as E.G. Revolut



Friendly yet professional group of guys who actively and rapidly cooperate to make things happen. Proactive lot. Problems are rapidly identified and solved. Clear answers are usually given for a GO or NO GO situation. No time wasters. Clear and neat. A refreshing discovery among dull and cumbersome competitors who today only bear a name yet no substance.

Where are they located?

Swissquote server is located in London with just latency of just 2.21ms from our VPS.

With any broker, one thing to realize is that where their head office is and where their Metatrader 4 servers are located are two very different places. Majority of Brokers have their servers located in one of three key locations(New York, London, Amsterdam). We have gone through and tested a server in each of locations to find the fastest connection and lowest latency to Swissquote. Here are the results:


7.18 ms


27.34 ms


2.21 ms

New York

73.50 ms
