I was with NT and AMP for 3 years with no significant data problems or problems with the help desk or transfer of funds. There was a brief stoppage once or twice due to CME problems and slow downs during very large volume trading but likely due to the slow processor in my PC at the time. I am back to trading stocks/ETFs and Forex for the time being.

I have been using AMP Futures for the past 9 months to trade TF without any connection problem. However, if you're using NinjaTrader, you may need a high-performance computer with lots of memory. It needs lots of resources especially around major news announcements when the market is very volatile.

Good luck

Agreed... NT (especially 6.5) is a resource hog and is not properly programmed in a multi-threaded fashion. In particular, the UI updates are all done in a single thread, which means that if you have a lot of charts open it will significantly slow down your system, even on the fastest processors. (This is a problem you will note around news releases, mostly.) Time and Sales windows are also extremely resource intensive. One solution is to set up multiple virtual machines and run a copy of NT inside each of them, thereby splitting up the processing amongst multiple CPU cores, if you have them.

Amp is horrible

Traded side-by-side AMP versus Mirus for 3 months.

Amp doesn't answer phone or emails & I got cut off their emergency trade line when I called with an emergency.

Had some problems with reported cost basis on a trade moving by 40 pips. Couldn't get them to take the issue seriously & they ridiculed me on a public forum (elitetrader).

No problems with mirus. Good in all the ways AMP is bad.

Save yourself the aggravation & go with Mirus instead. I consolidated both accounts there after saying good riddance to amp.

Amp or Global?

I am wondering what the connection/separation between Amp and Global Futures is. I recently did a NT/Global sim trial, but see they somehow use AMP clearing, which also offers brokerage services.

So, I'm looking around for an e-mini broker with good service and low commissions.

Is $4.50 RT reasonable for 5-10 RTs a day, or are there better rates out there for that volume?

I used to trade with IB, but their service is not the most prompt.

Thanks, Dennis

I think NT7 fixes a lot of those resource hog/memory leak issues of 6.5. With the newest versions latency/refreshments of TS, DOM and charts can be set to fastest settings (what your machine is able to handle).
CQG is top notch and NT7 is even able to show its full market depth now.

Very interesting bundle i have to say, very competitive.

Could not agree more, they are hopeless.

I have to agree here, very fast and reliable feed, in particular,at the opening of the ES/TF sessions. I compared the data to OEC and CQG is more precise (got more ticks), besides being available all the time.
