The Mirus/Zenfire problems are temporary. The problems with AMP are not.

Even with these problems, Mirus is better. I would stay as far away from AMP as possible. I had an account with them ( I closed my AMP account ) and I would only recommend AMP to a person I hated.

If you are thinking about leaving Mirus, there are better options like Optimus and Deep Discount Trading.

May I ask, what problems with Mirus we are talking about? I am contemplating an account with Mirus and am very interested. Thanks!

Search for "zenfire no more" and you will get a very accurate picture of what we are talking about.

Connors, if I may ask, why are you leaving AMP? I'm still torn between both Mirus & AMP. I'm currently use Tradestation but want to leave once I finish converting my automated strategies to Ninjatrader.

Well AMP isn't your only option; there are a number of other reputable brokers out there...

Totally agree


WolfieWolf View Post
I respect your strong opinion of AMP, if they have treated you badly then you deserve to feel the way you do, however I would express the exact same level of discontent about Mirus. Their technical problems may be temporary, they may also not be, but the way in which they have treated their customers says a lot about the "culture" of the company. They have been absolutely uncaring, uncommunicative, and insincere in any apologies that they have made which has been obvious by the lies that they have padded their statements with.... So I'm calling "poopeyhead" on both of them...

Agree on the "poopeyhead" call

There are always going to be temporary problems with trading. How your broker deals with them is not temporary.

I just have a demo with AMP at the moment. I too am trying to decide between them.

While I realize no firm is perfect, I almost opened a Mirus account in early December. I'm glad I didn't!

I'm still not sure about AMP but they are in the lead so far.

I read through this whole thread and still opened an account with AMP in November.

I think their IT processes are decent and I think as long as your queries are very "run of the mill" then you get "good" service.

I had to contact support and they resolved the issue very quickly and without any nasty comments or anything etc.

Query regarding AMP/CQG datafeed

Hi guys
I'm not sure if this is exactly the right thread to be posting in but I have a query regarding the CQG datafeed on the AMP Futures DEMO. I am backtesting an automated strategy on NT for the CL contract over a 15 month data period. Does anybody know what the resolution of the historical data is? Tick or minute data? As I'm using a 3 tick renko to backtest the strategy, this is quite a critical issue. Would be great if somebody could come back on this or point me in the right direction...
Many thanks
e
