Thank you ; understood with the need to use CQG. I want to avoid all these complexities; therefore, I have these related questions.
1. Do you know of any available solutions (like Sierra Chart routing service availability, etc.) that allows me to a) stay with AMP, b) continue using SC (charting and data), AND c) avoid these complexities?
2. If AMP can't satisfy this objective, what other broker streamlines SC experience; How about IB? If I use them, would my experience become easier; i.e. no need for all these additional steps and procedures?
3. If I switch to IB or any other SC-friendly broker, would I keep all my setups, or I will need to start from scratch?
4. Any other suggestions please?
Guys, I cannot survive artificial complexities (trading complexity is enough for me; the rest must be smooth and easy), so I need to solve this challenge. Your advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Greg

P.S. I just called AMP, and they said that I have to use CQG or take a different than SC platform, which leaves me no choice but either drop SC or drop AMP. The question #1 is eliminated. Please provide your insight / advice on questions #2, 3, and 4. Thank you in advance!

We assume by complexities you are referring to the requirement to have a live, funded, futures trading account in order to qualify for the non-professional exchange fees from the CME Group. If so, then we need to point out that this a requirement of the CME Group and not ours. We are just doing our best to comply with what they require.

Now, that said, this is just simply something to deal with. As long as you are connected to a live, funded, futures trading account, then you do not need to worry about this. Being connected to CQG will satisfy this requirement, so we do not understand your statement about AMP not being a solution.

1. Yes, use CQG for your order routing with AMP.

2. You can look at other brokers that support the Sierra Chart Order Routing Service. This may be slightly easier for you, but if you are already with AMP, then it will be easiest just to stay with them and use CQG. Still, you will find a partial list of brokers at Step #2 here:

3. All of your charts stay as they are. There is no dependency on the broker.

4. Again, if you are already with AMP, then we recommend just using the CQG solution. You will find the Setup Instructions for CQG here:

For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service:
