  • 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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Setting Up Multiple Data Connections For AMP / NinjaTrader

I saw some cats asking about this around the forum. I inquired about it not so long ago and this was
their response.



How to establish data diversification with NinjaTrader at AMP.

Each account can be set up only on one data connection. To set up multiple data connections into a
single copy of Ninjatrader is an easy process.

In order to achieve dual data connection, all you would need to do is set up a subaccount - transfer a minimum of $500 into the new sub-account. Once the new subaccount has been established, you will be able to select CQG, Rithmic or AMP/TTnet as the data feed.

Then, you can e-mail sales@NinjaTrader.com your NinjaTrader license key - and upgrade it to the multi-broker version. This will allow you to have multiple data connections at the same time.

Log into your customer portal: https://portal.ampclearing.com/account/login.aspx

Under your "Accounts" tab select sub-account then follow the wizard to complete the internal funds transfer to the new sub-account.

If you need any assistance, please call the 24 hour help desk: 312 893 6400 ext. 1 or email support@ampfutures.com

I just spoke with a customer service rep at AMP.

ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. Felt like talking to a total idiot who doesn't know anything. He didn't really answer any of my questions.

No way I am depositing any money with them.

there is one guy there in the funding/new accts depart. He is a joke. Blithering idiot comes to mind. I have no idea what he is doing there.



Has a accent from somewhere,nothing against accents but this guys is heavy. If its him...RUN..........FAST.


Max on tech support is cool,there is a Dave there on the chatbox...good guys.


Trade desk is hit or miss. I can see it being a stressful job,I cut them slack big time. TS's trade desk was the same.

Like working for ATC at a tower at any busy airport.

Ok. Can you be more specific about how this guy was "a total idiot". What kind of questions were you asking?

Persistence! Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not ... nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not ... Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not ... The world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent!

The problem wasn't the accent. The problem was transparency. He wasn't answering any questions I asked him clearly. Everything he said was tentative OR he was answering questions that I WASN'T asking him.

I will give you one example. I asked him about calculating day trading margins if you have an account in another currency. He said the margins are posted. I pointed out to him that those are in US dollars and asked him what the margins are OR how they calculate them for accounts in other currencies. He kept dodging the question and said that they have 'their own calculations'. When I asked him what they were, he had no answer for me. Finally, he admitted he had no clue about that.

And that wasn't the only question that went that way.

Crap service and no transparency.

I agree. Try to ask a question to any person from AMP and they will bring a lot of pain for your mind.
They are absolutely ignorant.

If I was on his position the question would be answered as the currency value conversion based on that day or whenever time period that you want. What is so hard about that? Yes,its does show lack of quick wit of a obvious simple question. Does not give confidence and one loses prospective customers fast .

ps they are a discount broker. 1 plus 1 does not equal 2. FYI

Did you ever try to calculate your baht vs usd?
Broker will use the official NY fix to calculate the equivalent in $ of your funds. So your statement and the intraday funds available for trading and margins are virtually converted so you can trade US or EUR or whatever instruments you trade. So approx . USD 1000.00 = BAHT 32915.20 in this moment. But I don't know the official 'fix' yesterday that will be used for the current sessions after the P&L are being calculated in your account.
That's all.

A blanket statement like that from one encounter with one soldier is ludicrous at best

Your questions were highly specialized. You should have asked for a specialist.

Good day sir.

A happy AMP customer
