I’m switching mailing list providers

Hi everyone. I just wanted to let those of you that are subscribed to this blog’s mailing list know that I’ll soon (like n the next few days) be switching mailing list providers. So from that point onwards all my mailing list broadcasts will become from Ymlp (Your MailingList Provider) instead of Aweber.

Why switch? Well, the only reason is cost. I like Aweber, but finance are a bit tight for me recently, so I have to cut costs where I can and Ymlp offers the same service at a much more economical rate. Also I rarely send out e-mails so I can’t justify paying $29 for a service that I infrequently use. However, aweber is great if you’re one of those big shot online marketers who sends e-mail on a very regular basis and you need advanced analytics and other such fancy pants features.

So yeah just a heads up that my next broadcast will be coming from Ymlp so don’t panic, unsubscribe, or flag the e-mail as spam. It will still show in the “From” field as “Alan’s Money Blog” so you know it will be from me.

Thanks for your attention and I wish you all the best.

Cheers,

Alan

My Forex VPS platform is officially open for business

forex vps nirvana logo

Hi everyone. I am very excited to announce that the proposed forex VPS platform I discussed a while back (here, here and here) is finally ready and open for business!!

I would like to apologize to all of you who expressed interest for making you wait so long. I learned a valuable lesson about overestimating development time.

The name I chose for the site/business is Forex VPS Nirvana in honor of the forum where I first announced the idea.

The price for an account is still the same $45/month that I promised everyone at the very beginning.

For more info or to sign-up please visit the Forex VPS Nirvana homepage at:

Cheers,

My own Forex VPS solution – anyone interested?

Hello everyone.

Alan here with an important announcement geared
toward all of you who trade foreign currencies (forex) like me.
I am seriously considering putting together my own Forex VPS
solution and I thought I’d send out an e-mail to see if any of
you would be interested in signing on board.

I’m not sure how many of you know what a forex VPS or even a VPS is
all about so I’ll briefly explain it here. Those of you who already
know this stuff can just skip it.

Basically a VPS is a dedicated computer/server that is hosted in a
high-end data center with a very high speed and reliable internet
connection. This VPS server’s job is to run your forex trading
platform and any forex robot(s) (automated trading systems, also
known as expert advisors) you may wish to use. It is the ultimate
in piece of mind for traders. IT ensures that power outages, slow
home internet connections, and other such problems do not affect
the performance of your trading applications. I think that every
trader should use a VPS solution if they’re serious about what
they’re doing.

Suffice it to say that what I have in mind to setup will be a very
advanced platform. It will be Linux based so you can’t get virus
infection, it will be rock solid stable, it will be portable
(you can log into your vps platform anywhere in the world), and
last but not least it will offer you unlimited bandwidth plus
unlimited memory usage – so you can run as many forex robots (EAs)
as you’d like.

Platforms that will be made available: MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and
MetaTrader 5 (MT5)

Latency?

The vps servers will be spread across 3 data centers – US, UK , and
Hong Kong. I will configure your VPS account to use the server
which is nearest to the MT4 server of your chosen broker thus
providing the lowest latency connection possible.

One thing that may interest affiliates and system sellers/marketers
is whether we will have an affiliate program. The answer is yes.
You can even have it so that your clients will not have access to
whatever EA you’re selling but merely “lease” it while running on
the VPS account.

To launch this venture I’d need about 100 clients to start.

What about cost?

Well, I did some research and I decided that given the fact that
there will be no bandwidth and memory restrictions then $45 /month
would be a reasonable price to ask. Most other forex vps providers
charge double!

So whoever is seriously interested please let me know by signing up
to the interest group mailing list I setup for this purpose. Here
is the link:

http://forms.aweber.com/form/61/1676955861.htm

If I get 100 or more people on board then I’ll get the wheels
rolling and in a short while the vps platform will be made
available.

If you have any comments or suggestions feel free to e-mail me or post a comment.

P.S. Feel free to share this info with your forex trading friends
and associates.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
Alan
