Ah another email from Jeff at AMP

"this the fourth email to AMP, its the third one sent directly to you. You never answered my questions in those first two. And it's the second email to you, telling you I've gone with a broker that listens and actually answers questions.

SO in answer to your question

NO
have a nice day,

Tony

Tony,

Do you have any further questions regarding opening a live account?

I've decided to add AMP and Jeff in particular to my Junk Mail List, so definitely my last post on the issue. And as for my experience....well others can take from it what they will.

Yep, Amp never answered my questions. I sent like 3 emails. No more .

Search for Optimus on the forum.

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.
6)

@kk240

Have you tried clicking on the Chart Trader icon on the toolbar at the top of the chart?

AMP is really horrible.

I opened an account several weeks ago.
From day one the account value was wrong.
I never received any account statements by email.
I never was able to log in to the client area to view any statements.
When closing Ninja it warned me several times of open positions where there were none (maybe they mixed up 2 accounts somehow)

I sent 2 mails which were not answered, so I closed my account.
Of course I never got the realtime indexes which AMP promised with CQG.

And by the way, my account is still open and shows a nice balance which clearly isnīt mine (LOL tempted to do some trades, but OK).

What a mess.

And mirus? They answer at least to mails. But they donīt even know which contracts can be traded with them. They wanted to tell me that I must have traded the M6E through Sim account, because it canīt be traded live with them.
Of course it can be traded. The other micros? I still donīt know, they didnīt bother to find out. An email to RCG went unanswered. What a competent service.

I`ll give Optimus a try, I think. Hope they are better......

The free NinjaTrader Direct Edition that you are using does not have Chart Trader. You would need to purchase the full version from our website to have access to Chart Trader.

I use Mirus/RCG.

I have never had a big enough problem with Mirus that prompted me to look for another broker.

I have always been able to get through to the Order Desk immediately when there was a hiccup (i.e. NT froze and I wanted to close a position immediately etc)

Support has been good at answering questions over the phone the few times I have needed to call them.

When Mirus was not able to provide a solution immediately , I called RCG direct and they resolved the issue straight away.

RCG suggested that even though I signed up through an IB, I contact them direct with anything that was under their control and that I contact the IB (Mirus) if it was something related specific to Mirus (commission rates etc).

This scenario has worked well for me.

As always, YMMV.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.
