Thanks: 37 given,
I've been with both brokers, and my experience was:
Very efficient, good service, never had a problem with them.
The lowest commission that I know, if you don't mind connecting to TTnet. (If you only connect to CQG/Continuum and you have a lifetime license of Ninjatrader, then the new Ninjatrader Brokerage has lower commission).
AMP has the poorest service I've encountered among brokerage firms; I can't even recall the number of my emails that they either ignored or responded partially! So yeah, if you don't care about service...
As promised I will keep those who are interested updated about the progress of my application/trading experience with at least one of the 2 brokers.
My account has already been approved after providing the usual requirements such as passport, prove of address... so far so good with AMP (Only need to fund it, but still hesitating cause I am not really willing to help the enemy of my BRO "Mike" of this website)
On the other hand,
With NinjaTrader Brokerage they ask me all kinds of things. The problem is when they asked my name and family name (during application) I filled in as they asked. Now they fuss about the letter of my second name as stated on my bank statement and my passport. Duhhh, if you don't ask for my NAMES you will get only my name, since I am not going to say I am Jonathan David Marcus Micheal Davenport.
Second of all, they asked about my business. Is it of their concern??? NO!!! (but ok, I politely answered)
Dorman/NinjaTrader Brokerage asked me about another prove such as a utility bill which will prove my name (as if my passport is saying otherwise). I got so pissed, so I said "NO" so I send them a statement of my American Express Centurion card, and explained them they can read all about the American Express "Black card" on the net or even call American Express, and then decide whether I am a valuable new customer or not.
Thank you steve2222, IB charges cancellation/modification fee, but you do get E2.50 credit when your order gets filled. So when you get in and get out you got E 5.- credit (enough to cancel/modify 10 x E .50=0)
That's one of the reasons why I consider opening another account somewhere else.
Hi @EuroMark what is the point of your postings, I mean yes they ask questions, after all it's an application to do business with them(the broker)??
Either you open or you don't, who is holding the gun to your head-- if you are upset or not comfortable--move on to a different broker. Not like there are not many to chose from!
Wish you the best in whatever is yu decide
