Welcome to Big Mike's Trading Forum.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

BMT is fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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.

To clarify, CQG is a hosted solution and they themselves manage each hub of their global network. No matter what FCM you use or what front end (NinjaTrader, CQG Trader) it all connects to the same CQG global network.

@NinjaTrader apart from AMP, is there any other broker where I can connect to CQG?

I know Velocity Futures does. I am sure there are many others, but none that I am personally familiar with.

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.

@Big Mike

I have looked at Velocity before but I thought we can only use CQG Trader, it does not say anything about NT and CQG integration. So did you connect NT + CQG through Velocity before?

Sorry, I haven't tried Ninja. I will ask Velocity, but we should take that line of questioning to a new thread that is not about Amp.

My Experience with AMP Over Last Few Days

Hi,


I had the same issues, but called my AMP representative… he told me to restart my computer and problem went away. I then later asked what this was and he told me it was a universal CQG issue, which seems to be true since I am in Australia.

All in all, it was relatively slow market and I was on demo anyways when this occurred.

Datafeeds, even the best ones, can lose connectivity from time to time. Of course, the rarer the better, but my AMP representative was quick to allay my fears and provide feedback. My outage lasted no more than 10 minutes.

Overall, I am still pleased with AMP despite this issue. The service from my broker is quick and receptive, commissions are low as I wrote before, and I am still trading my domestic market via a foreign (USA-based) broker, interestingly enough.


Regards,
Marat

NinjaTrader through CQG is exclusive to AMP and it's introducing broker network. It's not available at Velocity.

My commissions for the 6e are $4.74 RT. I also got hit with routing fee but since I've been with them for a while Dan cleared it up and all is good. While I agree their CS can improve I never have a problem reaching anyone when I have an issue with a trade, and that is what is most important to me. The CQG feed is top notch. I give em a thumbs up!

My short experience as a futures trader so far.

I tried 4 brokers/3FCMs so far since I restarted trading futures after 15 years absence.

1. Tradestation: I chose it because it was the platform I used 15 years ago. I did a little research afterwards and found more reliable, easier to use platforms with more choices so I moved on.

2. Optimus/Vision: I was with them for about 5 months. During that time I didn't have one instance where I got disconnected during trading hours. My account dwindled to 60% threshold where I wanted to stop trading,,,and wanted to fresh start so I moved to AMP.

3. AMP: I only chose AMP because of their datafeed which is CQG and market breadth index. Commission rate was ok because I was paying almost the same to Optimus. I had the account for 2 weeks because of the reasons I posted earlier.

4. Global: They clear through AMP so I moved with them. Their commission rate was same till AMP began charging $0.20 CQG fee and guys and gals work their are very customer service oriented and their office was kind of local to me. I wanted to stay with these guys but I had more than 4 times where I got disconnected during trading since mid Feb. Global has 2 or 3 other FCMs but AMP(FCM) is only one that I can use Ninjatrader which I invested too much into already.

5. So,,,,,,I'm back to Optimus now.
