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.

@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.

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.
