I had posted this in a ES journal thread but it's probably off topic there as I received replies from only 2 people. Situation: AMP futures account, CQG feed, placing trades both via the tradingview desktop app and the mobile MT5 app. Expected behavior: "purchasing power", a.k.a "buying power" or current balance should be up to date in realtime, especially when all positions were closed. Observed behavior: the correct (most up-to-date) balance is lagging by several hours due to synchronizations (are they unique to MT5???), also known as corrections and delayed fee subtractions (commissions, NFA fees, etc). I saw a difference of $1600 USD between my acct balance on Saturday morning compared to 19:00 EDT last Friday after the market closed. This sucks. To be clear, OTE does not figure in this discussion as I am talking about a flattened account. Nothing is held beyond the RTH. Questions Is this unique to the CQG feed? If so maybe Rithmic is the right solution?? Is this issue unique to the MT5 platform? Maybe Sierra, Quant Tower are better as far as showing the right balance Is this issue unique to AMPGlobal? If not (i.e. industry wide issue) are there any brokers in the US who provide estimated commissions/fees in realtime, and thus an estimated buying power, before the actual fees get subtracted at night or whenever. Coming from the stock trading world to futures I find it very unsettling that the broker does not make the buying power available in realtime. I generated in a matter of 18 hours about $2000 in commissions (i.e. lots of trades) and have no good way to figure out if the broker's tally is correct. Lastly, I did put some of these questions to AMP in a zendesk ticket but there was no reply.
