I have had excellent service from AMP for several years now. I use CQG, TTnet and Rithmic on multiple accounts there and they provide great support for all of the feeds and different platforms I use there. Multicharts, Rithmic trader, Xtrader and Sierra charts.

I have many different feeds to choose from and platforms also. Never had a mistake on statements, fees or commissions.

They have been great for me.


I also use TD , and Vision. I used Dorman previously but was not impressed with their service.


Thumbs up for AMP from me.

Excellent service?? Never had a mistake on statements??
You must have a huge account in order for them to treat you with this kind of respect.
It's simply not what I experienced from AMP Futures, not at all.

If you're looking for cheap commissions, great margins, great technology, it's hard to beat AMP. If you are looking for a lot of hand holding and great customer service, you're better off taking your business elsewhere. As long as my technology is working well, I don't really need customer service. I've been with AMP for a long time and I've never had an issue that required much customer service. All I really care is that I can enter and exit my orders quickly and for a low cost. I had an internet outage once and called the trade desk and I was out of my positions within 30 seconds, that's all the customer service that I care about. I take care of the rest myself.

Apparently he doesn't have a utility bill in his name.

Standard request for the utility bill. I had to do the same thing with Infinity.

Over here in The Netherlands, all formal letters are written: M.K. Douglas in stead of Micheal K. Douglas unlike in the States. Any Dutch person in here can confirm that.
I was about to give up until I bumped into a US letter from Club Carlson. Sending them this letter along with my lifetime License key from Ninja Trader and the approval from AMP Futures, I got approved. Hallelujahhhhhhhh I guess they just didn't want to see me leaving to AMP

As soon I fund my account and know more about the Ninja Trader Brokerage, I'll let you guys know.

I was looking to open a second account but after reading through a lot of posts on this thread, I have decided to give Amp a miss and put more funds into my Ninja trader account. Anymore advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for all the info.

I saw that.

It also seems some people are not paying close attention to what they are being quoted, and might be confusing "commissions" with "all-in". Some brokers are quoting "commission" but not clearly spelling out they are charging an additional "clearing" fee, where others have no such "clearing" fee. The importance is in the all-in grand total.

It's important to look at all the factors and pick a reputable broker after doing your due diligence.

Mike

damn, am glad i decided to swing by here after ages. finally, after dicking around in SPOT FX, it seems i have come to my senses and decided to go futures all the way. i got taken in by AMP (haven't submitted all the docs yet) and after some more digging around started to notice there seem to be a lot of additional fees on top of the 'lowest' comish. mmhhh

so... still looking for a futures broker. where can find out more about this story of lawsuit? (sounds completely outlandish, what happened?)

I've had some futures accounts clearing through TransAct as the FCM, here is the counter party agreement they required me to sign.

jesus! i thought this was not possible with exchange traded instruments. so not much difference between shady OTC SPOT and futures brokers. then why switch over to futures when SPOT FX is so much less of a headache?
