AMP Trading - how reliable

Hi guys......I was wondering if I could get everyone's opinion on how reliable is AMP Trading.....I mean their service as a broker but also their technical infrastructure........so, I was watching end of the day price breakout on 6E and I lost a connection when the price was about to cross 1.4708 resistance.......i am on sim this late in the game but still.....it was due to happen and I am sure a lot of people were waiting for it......I never experienced a situation like this one through Mirus.........I appreciate your feedback....thanks.......ziko

I think Mirus and Amp both use Dorman's Zenfire feed.
So if one is down the other may be affected.

However, I did not experience the outtage you show and I'm using both AMP and IB's data feed.

Yep me too on GC with Amp. Came back in 2 minutes I believe. Djon the moderator from EOT told me he had had problems with AMP calling him back once about a trade. They sure beat my door down whenever I sign up for a demo. BTW it wasn't my net connection everything else was fine on 2 different machines just them.

I should mention that was the first time I had an issue with their data. Frankly if the market was bursting on high volume I could understand them throttling the simmers since we are noy paying to spare data for paid customers but I don't think this was the case, it was towards the end of ES regular trading session.

Well, I have not heard many complaints about the zenfire data so my immediate suspicion was AMP especially since I don't have any experience dealing with them......

The only problem I've had with AMP in the last say 8 months (running demo only) is when they roll over their demos. Then I have to get a new user id. Otherwise, I've got no complaints.

I have been using bith Mirus and Amp and at different times when there are problems similar to yours there is always a different explanation of what happened and why. I would suggest you get real familair with your broker and demand satisfaction or take business elsewhere. ALL OF THESE BROKERS ARE UNDERSTAFFED IMHO (FORMER BROKER) so understand what they must be going through when it affects several hndred people calling in looking for answers.
