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.

Simply ask them to rectify the commissions / margins. Also account size can make a difference in your options to get better commissions, according to the AMP Cost Calculator
Also note that most of the broker feeds has maintenance period and it' could be on Sundays.
About losing historical data, this depends which data you are talking about: if they are realtime indicators calculated on historical bid/ask then it depends on software and backfill datafeed. CQG feed provided by AMP could not be the best solution in order to obtain that kind of service.
If, instead, the issue is about Multicharts, then it's better if you contact that TSSupport. Also you may need to update the latest CQG MAPI module (ask for the specific procedure for the update).
Hope this helps.

The problem with the data has been fixed. I asked them over the phone if i could get a refund on the commissions, in so many words they said no.

Please notice that when their calculator says the Euro 6E is $4.44 R/T, they will add an extra $1 for 'clearing' that other brokers do not add so you will end up paying $5.55 R/T. Usually the CME clearing fee is about $0.06 which you also pay.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

I pay $2.32 a side and I don't have that 1$ charge you speak of. Can you provide more info.

Thanks.

You probably have a better deal than me

This is cut from my statement trading 2 R/T 6B

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



 
Code
Exchange    6.40
NFA         0.08
Clearing    2.00
CQF TRF     0.40
Commission  2.00
-----------------
          $10.88
$10.88 for 2 R/T so $5.44 per round trip.

The clearing fee is $0.50 per side so a round trip is $1.00.


And it was $5.44, not $5.55. My bad. Typo.

Just opened an account with AMP

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
I was wondering about the reliability of TICK data... (CQG - Ninja) I use it for entry and my TOS platform differs significantly. TOS seems to be more accurate for this purpose..

Moderator Note


It has come to my attention from multiple users that AMP Trading/AMP Global is threatening to close trading accounts against users who share their experiences about AMP Trading on futures.io (formerly BMT).

If this has happened to you, please contact me ASAP.




Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

in the beginning i had some problems with AMP futures.
after a litte bit of raging and complaining, everything is fine now.

its all about communication. the guys from AMP are sometimes a little bit slow but i give them a 8 out of 10

CQG is a top datafeed... thats the reason why i choosed AMP (and about the cheap commisions).

i also use TOS, it hase the same accuracy as CQG. the problem with TOS is, that the plattform is sometimes delayed (becaus of that stupid javascript language).

AMP clearing

Does anyone know who clears AMP futures? They are not CME clearing member, so i wonder through whom they clear CME products?

Thanks!

They are their own clearing merchant.
