  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

I told AMP about this and they lowered it to $1 RT which is about the same as IB

That's great that you informed them of that. I'm glad they lowered it. However, for people trading high volume, IB is even cheaper when you get further up the volume tiers. The only downside is the poor data feed...

Data is tragic ... but not so tragic as AMP service.

AMP Futures - Mini-Nikkei 225 now available for live trading


I received the following e-mail today:

"AMP Futures is excited to announce Asia's Most Liquid Futures Contract (Mini-Nikkei 225) is now available for Live Trading.

Mini-Nikkei 225 is the most liquid futures contracts in Asia. The notional value of one contract is 100 times the value of the Nikkei 225. It is a tenth of the contract size of Nikkei 225 Large Contracts.

When comparing the daily trading volume to any US Futures Markets it is very close, if not larger than the ES (Emini SP500).

This is for all trading platforms connected to AMP/CQG datafeed - NOW Added by Default to ALL AMP/CQG Demo Connections.


Contract Specs:

CQG Symbol: MJNK (For example - MJNKM16)

Margins: Maintenance: $1'000 DayTrade: $500

Trading Hours: Open 7pm CST (Chicago) - Closes 1:10am CST (Chicago)

After Hours (Asia Night Session) Re-opens 2:30am CST until 12:55pm CST

Tick Value: 1 Tick = 500 YEN or approx. $4.56 USD

The Price for trading is very inexpensive, now one of the cheapest available markets/contract at AMP. Base Cost is only 40 YEN per side/contract.

Any Trade Routing Fees, Platform Fees (per contract or Monthly Platform Fees) and any Monthly Exchange Data Fees will STILL be charged."

This looks really interesting since it is only about $5 per tick and you can trade it at night. The only downside is that you have to get data from the Japan Exchange (JPX) which costs $29 per month.

ZERO, no history for me. I'm using Ninjatrader and they don't have it on their history server. CQG won't backfill it.

You could use the NKD to chart this i reckon, then use the MJNK for DOM

Think I'm going to create an AMP account just for the CQG feed.

I need accurate bid/ask data.
