Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

AMP is pants

I have tried to work with these clowns for a few months now, but it is of no use. I have not gotten a single platform/ data feed combo to work reliably with them. My main account is with IB, which I use with Sierrachart and MC.Net as a front end and these combos work really well. Now just need an other backup broker with tick-accurate data feed.

AMP: junk is always junk, no wonder, especially when you talk to that Vietnamese guy...he is awful.

Hi,


Ive just see this post. I only have to say that Im AMP Customer for around one year or more. I confirm, Customer Service is not a very good service, I had some problems with agents who speaks my language (Spanish) but didnt know nothing about the things I ask them and also sometimes are so late in responses. I prefer to speak with the chat service in English instead with my AMP agent.

Recently, I feel a better change and seems are a little more close to the customers, but is a Broker, which Im not very happy with.

Watching that also want to denounce one of my fovourite forums is another step to get out of them...

Futures Edge on FIO
Hello All,

I have an account with AMP, and I saw lot of bad comments/exp. about them here.. but I work with Johny Khek(AMP) and he is always helpful and reply to me or solve my issues with in minutes..i am not saying they are the best or any thing in that matter , and I don't agree with AMP law suit against Mike and futures.io (formerly BMT), this is one forum I feel fair and true to the benefit for all of us and I learned a lot from this forum than any thing else and Big Mike is doing a fantastic job to keep this forum true and good.. ..I sincerely hope they both reach in mutual understanding and get rid off these law suits..Just adding my experience with AMP and express my respect to futures.io (formerly BMT) and Big Mike
Thanks

Sue happy brokers

I personally think this is the most upscale and legit trading forum in the business and to see any broker personally attack it shows me there not client oriented as they will likely loose many more clients that see this kind of activity as the small minded attempt of some sort of personal revenge it appears to be. I personally was about to apply for a account with this broker to test them but now I am very leary

Quantismo

PS.. I have live accounts with MB Trading, Mirus, Onanda, FXCM, TD Ameritrade, Scottrade, Trade King and each one of them don't go around suing forums for they show some class.

AMP not much class and lost the plot

I am looking for an additional broker but AMP just dropped all the way from the top of my shortlist... to .... 'NO WAY'.

I didn't even read the detailed rationale for their decision to file lawsuit against BigMike.
To my opinion a company should just not throw it's weight around by filing frivolous lawsuits.
It proves that AMP's focus is not on the right things and therefore IMHO they can't be trusted with my money.

Brokers should spend their resources in making their company better. Engaging lawyers to attack internet forums is IMHO a definitive sign that the AMP company board has lost the plot.
Just think of the time and money wasted.....

If there are negative opinions about certain companies, readers are able to weigh these against the positive remarks. Even with the negative remarks in some posts, AMP was about to get my business as for my situation their global reach, multi-currency funding, costs, etc. outweighed the concerns about customer support (also expressed on other trading websites).
BigMike is the premier trading site and quite well moderated and balanced. Much more balanced than most other trading sites. I value the opinions of the contributors here, independent of their stance being pro or con.


The move of AMP to throw up a tantrum and file a lawsuit against a trading site because of opinions stated on a forum is IMHO a childish act. It does not fit with a solid organization with a mature approach to business. If a company focuses on that crap, they can't be focused on running their core business.

So .... no AMP for me. This kind of lawsuit behavior negates all and any positives.... as it proves a company to be immature in business dealings. Their focus is in the wrong place. No way I will trust them with my money.


And BTW.
I humbly submit that the best course of action for BigMike might be to give AMP their way.
I am all for defending the right of expression, but in this case I do wonder if it is worth the time and money. Why would you spend time defending the right of reader to talk about a company which does not want to be discussed??

Just delete EVERYTHING related to AMP on the site and let us discuss brokers which focus on brokerage.
Then amend the term 'AMP' in the spell checker so that 'AMP' will automatically change into: ...'this company that sues us when they do not agree with your post cannot be discussed on BigMike'.
I am sure AMP will be very happy that they won't get any attention anymore.....

Because it sets a bad precedent that will stifle people ability to provide fair and honest reviews of their experiences with brokers, vendors, etc. Having looked at the citations in the forms provided by Mike, I would say the law is on his side. AMP is suing him for the actions of a third party, which he is protected from by law.

I have nothing but good experiences with AMP. I didn't have time to read all the details behind this lawsuit, but it really surprised me.

I hope things are solved in an amiable way. Maybe AMP should present their side against any criticisms here on futures.io (formerly BMT)F in a webinar in addition to their capabilities of course. In a way giving AMP also an open forum. I realize that some people go to forums only to criticize companies, never to say anything positive.

Btw, I also support Big Mike. This is the best and most trustworthy trading forum in the internet. Again, without knowing all the details, I'm guessing that there is some type of misunderstanding from AMP's part and some clarification may help solve this.

Not to get too far into it, but there's been an extensive history with AMP on futures.io (formerly BMT), which you can search for. Eventually they got banned (search for details, if interested), and there's been legal stuff going on for awhile.

So you could say that they have had their forum, and I'm real sure that @Big Mike is not going to give them more.
