No you don’t although it is highly recommended. If you don’t want to use a VPS you can use your PC at home however please note that your MetaTrader terminal will need to be connected to the internet at all times so the software can function. If your MetaTrader terminal loses connection for any amount of time it can affect the software’s performance, and any loss of connection could incur losses to your trading account. Using a VPS is highly recommended so that you can run the software without any interruption and low latency and not encounter any issues of performance.
