Hey, I was just wondering if there was more traders experiencing the same slippage on GC with Amp trading in the last 3 weeks? I'm with them for a long time and suddenly i get slippage on nearly every trade? Before hardly ever? And can anybody make a suggestion on where to go who offers NT7 and quite decant?
has your slippage been taking place ever since they became their own FCM? curious to know.... also, you dont mention via who you are routing the orders at AMP... It would be even more interesting to know if you are planning to switch over to CQG/NT7 combo and then if the slippage goes away given the new order routing via CQG..
The following user says Thank You to sysot1t for this post:
It started about 3 weeks ago, like i said before that hardly ever. Dont know when they become their own FCM? Im trying to place when it started cause i went from NT6.5 to NT7 but as i recall it started for the last week in NT6.5. I then upgraded to 7 and went to CQG thought that will sort it but it didn't the first day on CQG NT7 i lost 4 ticks slippage on two losers...? So that was 8 ticks? No news no runners just normal market? Anyway i spoke to my broker and he doesn't seem to have a idea as he says nobody he knows get slippage at Amp trading. I will phone my internet connection provider today to find out if anything changed but i dont think so? I will see how the week goes and then move my account. Slippage is part of trading but this is ridicules.
Not aimed at AMP but a broker who want to cheat would do the following : "They fill you 4 ticks away, but buy on the market the contract which they hold for you. When you sell they sell your contract on the market and they sell to you with 4 ticks slippage."
Look at the site of the NFA, big names who everybody thought they were OK happened to pay fines and settlements.

That is serious, and doesn't make sense for them to take that kind of risk. If they were up to those kind of shenanigans it wouldn't take long to be exposed. Again, it just doesn't make sense to risk for a few ticks here and there.
Never had an issue with AMP ZenFire Ninja combo. Geussing it has more to do with the new CQG feed. Don't think they have all the issues worked out yet. Anything that impedes the order path (API's for instance) will result in a delay for market orders being passed, filled, reported.
