For clarification, I am simply trying to sort through my possible options with respect to being forced to move my trading from Mirus to a yet to be determined new home. I don't have an account with AMP, but am giving them equal consideration along with several other broker options. The threads on futures.io (formerly BMT) have been a tremendous help in my learning curve with respect to brokers and technologies that I have never worked with in the past.
My statement was based solely on the AMP Cost Calculator which does give the choice of NinjaTrader Direct or Standard Editions when I select Rithmic as the Data Feed. I had always selected Direct just to keep things simple (since it is Free). When I select Standard on the calculator the commission rate remains the same at $1.91. My assumption is in either case, Direct or Standard, the commission rate should be the same (not including TT Static DOM credits for the Standard Edition). So, No I am not sure if NinjaTrader Direct Edition is available for the new AMP/Rithmic Data Feed.
I spoke on the phone with an AMP broker on Tuesday, and was told to call back in a few days because they didn't have any information on the AMP/Rithmic technology being released when I tried to ask some specific questions about it. I called back on Thursday and was apparently given wrong information, which I posted up thread and had to later retract based on more accurate information provided here by several knowledgeable AMP clients posting here. Maybe the AMP brokers should read this thread before answering any more questions on the phone
But you do get some backfill when using X_Trader, right?
Rithmic does not provide any tick backfill, there is simply no functionality for that in their API (though they provide minute bars for active contracts). So if you get any tick backfill on Rithmic with NT, it must be coming from NT, as Steve2222 says.
This is my understanding too.

i want to know if AMP (Clearing) provide a good customer portal with common features like trade history, downloadable statements, some statistics, withdrawel mgmt and such stuff? Can anybody make some anonymised screenshots of that. I haven't seen one post about that topic so far. So the question is whats "good". My Definition: RCG very very poor - Velocity excellent. I hope AMP is in between.
I think i already posted about this somewhere, regardless, the portal is low in content. Sorry no screenshots. There is no trading history, there are no downloadable statements. It is pretty bare.
You can reconfigure your account/platform/data feed as they have many choices.
You can create sub accounts.
You can perform withdrawal requests.
You can transfer funds to FXCM.
Regardless of the portal, I automatically get daily trade statements, monthly trade statements and tax statement e-mailed to me.

no the trade history and account activity will be in pdf format sent daily, monthly.
I cannot view these things in the portal.
Only overview of balances in trading account, but no online viewing of detailed activity.
It is the same for me at Vision financial.
not much in the client portal. that is not through a broker though.
These things don't matter to me. The statements are emailed to me without a glitch and that's fine.
PDF on the computer, print a hard copy and file.
Trade history detailed reports I find to be dependent on the platform.
With Sierra chart and TT amp, I cant even see my account balance from within the platform ! what in the hell is that ?
Ridiculous if you ask me.
Ninja ? all details readily available and also with Multicharts.
I would think these things should be viewable easily in an online portal also.
My main clearing account is at TD Ameritrade and the account information available at every level is unbeatable.

Can anybody confirm that if you are using Ninjatrader with CQG (and AMP of course) the datafeed / execution is routed to the CQG server in london? As i know the broker have to set the NEW cqg server ip manually via license or ??? .
