AMP have already adjusted their cost calculator. The 15 cents ALL IN Micro Emini commission for accounts above 25K is not available anymore. Now 39 cents for small accounts and 37 cents for >10K accounts (SC/CQG).

paying about $1 per round turn to trade a full size, which is just 0.08 ticks!

Now that we use clearing for Spot FX, I would tell you that .8 is achievable on a spread. The Micros have turned out to be great for stock indices, despite my initial concerns. However, the spot FX for micro contracts on FX is better from what I see on execution.

That also

But I don't trust anything I read on the AMP commission calculator webpage. They have numerous quoted commissions that are 100 times lower than actual. All due to what appears to be incredibly sloppy calculation work, and zero attention to detail.

I started trading the MYM live Friday. Just checked my daily statement, Amp total commissions are 0.39 per side, exactly as stated in their cost calculator.
