DDT = DeepDiscountTrading

Is it possible to get a licence or something for TT and hook it up to one of these brokers without them having a broker-software people relationship, ie take the broker out of the situation as the middle man between software/charting package and trader??

OK, I will show my ignorance again. What is TT?

You may also be interested to look at a comparison Ive just done. IB Vs CQG for the SPI

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Hey there, new member,

Ive been exhaustively trying to search for a reputable broker/fcm who can offer me access to SPI futures for a good rate, (i roughly do about 1000 rt's a month)..

many of the brokers dont respond to emails, which makes it difficult..

the problem is AMP is the only one thats showing up, and from what ive been reading thats something I may not wanna put myself through..

Has anyone found another futures broker that offers SPI, and hopefully TT X Trader?

I thought I got a hit with 'Variance Futures' but they quickly became impossible to contact, so I went to their FCM (Vision Financial) and theyre equally difficult to contact via email.

Does anyone know if its possible to get SFE markets if i went straight to RCG, Crossland or Dorman?

Any helps appreciated, cheers

If you want to get TT X trader, then call directly to TT Australia, they will help you with $1500/month for the feed alone with a local broker.
Macqaurie will offer you CQG with a similar pricing(they used to have TT feed as well.

OEC offers SFE feed for free, but you will see the difference.

I think AMP is a good solution not so much because of low costs but the speed as they use CQG network, and here on 220ms responses time you will see how important this is, unless you trade SPI only which is an overnight feed (less busy) for the US based servers.
How do you trade should help you to decide which broker/platform to use. If high quality data feed is not important then look at IB??
Since you are newbie which broker do you use now?

Good luck

Hi NW27,

It seems you are still trading the SPI - yes?

Could I ask which broker/platform/datafeed you use?

After being caught first by MFG and then PFG, I am now looking for a new broker and figured I might bring my trading activity back closer to home.

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide...

Thanks Neil,

Yes - based on what I have been able to find in last day or so, AMP looks like first choice if SPI is needed. There is also Open ECry but guess they are in 'wait and see' category since being purchased by Gain.

I am in Sydney - OK I PM you my email so we compare notes?

Didn't want to start a new thread. Anyone trading SFE products on AMP?

Are you also not able to place orders for the last 2 days?

Ninja support and AMP tech support told me to contact the trade desk who sent an email yesterday saying "checking our order route to the exchange" and have not heard back since... Is it just me or others having this problem too?

What other options are out there for low commission SFE trading (besides IB)?

havaiana,

I have same probs at present - at least you got some initial notification from them.

I emailed trade desk - but no answer so far.

Seems that AMP are long term serial offenders in regard to ignoring emails.

I quite like the CQG feed but havent found any other brokers that offer it so far.
