@NinjaTrader since appears you took AMP off your broker list (Glad you did if this is the case). Consider putting Optimus on it. They have given many as evidenced on this board stellar service regarding NT. @mattz deserves a chance.

Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Although I fully expected NinjaTrader Brokerage to compete directly with AMP, their owner Dan Culp has thrown a number dirty shots below the belt my way, and as a result I decided to remove them from our list of approved brokerages. Competition is good and healthy but I have standards in how I conduct business.
We are contractually obligated to provide clients the option to obtain a “NinjaTrader on CQG” license for use through AMP. This obligation terminates in March 2015. Existing clients are unaffected and can continue to broker through AMP for as long as you wish.
It is important to know that NinjaTrader will release server side ATM strategies, server side simulation, mobile trading interface and other features sometime in 2015. These important features are exclusive to NinjaTrader Brokerage. Clients with a NinjaTrader Brokerage account prior to the release of these platform advancements are guaranteed NOT to have any price increase to access these features.

Why anyone on this site continues to want anything to do with AMP is beyond me. The incidents of their arrogance and unethical behavior pop up constantly.
For those that aren't aware,...do some digging around on the forum re AMP. AMP taking legal action against futures.io (formerly BMT) is the tip of the ice berg. They are not a company I will ever do business with. Quite surprised any forum regulars who know of AMP's history would want to either.
Sorry,...will not hijack the thread any more. Just needed to be said as yet another case of AMP's arrogance an unethical behavior pops up.

Thanks: 501 given,
Why do you not guarantee this price feature to ALL your long standing customers who own lifetime licences, irrelevant to the date of owning an account with NJ Brokerage. This would show your dedication to your customer base who have been so loyal over the years.

Me as well, but I think it's simply a matter of lack of education. Only those that have read a great deal on the subject would truly understand all angles, and I don't believe that is AMP's target audience.
I hope more people do their homework when selecting a broker.
Given recent history of MFG and PFG where funds were lost, and then more recent NFA actions with Vision (FCM) as well as Global Futures (IB, Global clears thru AMP), traders should not take any chances when it comes to their broker. I hope ultimately that we will see some form of insurance like SIPC but for futures. That may be wishful thinking.
I hope everyone is taking notice. And I hope everyone has read all the public documents about the AMP lawsuit so they can reach their own conclusions about the merits of their lawsuit.

AMP expressed in a global mail targeted to their clients base that the decision from Ninja to restrict the supported technology / broker list was a regressive decision. There must be much more behind the scenes but were they also smacked down for expressing a contradictory opinion publicly ?
Whatever the internal brainstorming, I'm one of those who select their broker for a various and complete array of reasons, then I pick Ninja over other platforms eventually if choice is offered but this is not the decision point. It seems illogical and unprofessional to me to pick the broker the other way around, based on the platform only or mostly.
I have friends 3rd party partners with Ninja who now fear they will lose business if clients don't follow. I hope this strategic move will work out for Ninja in the end, sincerely, and that quality partners come in okay number and diversity.
