Rithmic Gateway - Europe or Americas?

When adding a Rithmic data feed to Optimus Trader, I would guess it is best to choose a gateway that is closest to the Optimus Trader server receiving the feed. So if Optimus Trader servers are in the USA, should I always choose “Americas” for the Rithmic gateway, even though I am located in Europe?

Or is the Rithmic data streaming to my web browser/mobile and processed locally, in which case I would think it is optimal to choose “Europe” for me?

Hello @autobahn,

Thanks for your question.

In regards to choosing a gateway (on any platform that uses Rithmic data), I suggest you choose the gateway closest to your actual location for the best ping and performance.

Regardless of where our servers are located, you need to choose the gateway closest to you. In your case, yes, I believe the Europe server would be best suited for you and provide the most stable connection!

I hope this clears things up.
