Let's go through the steps in detail for how to open up a brokerage account with AMP. You can also view the video if you prefer learning in that format.
Head to AMP's Website
You can navigate to AMP's website by clicking here. Next make sure to click the green button at the top of the page as shown in the image below.
Next click Open Account Now.
Select the Account Type. For most people, especially new traders, this will be Individual. However, if you have structured your trading as a business then consult with your accountant to see what the best option is for you. After selecting Account Type and reading the Risk Disclosure Statement, scroll down to the bottom and click Begin Application.
Simply fill out all the required information then submit. You will receive a confirmation email that your application is being processed, and then when your account is ready to be funded.
Funding Your New Account
Login to your account here and click Wiring Instructions under the Banking tab.
A new page will open that takes you to AMP's Funding Instructions. Follow the instructions for sending money via wire, ACH or check. Note for the first two you can set up a transfer directly with your personal bank to make things easier.
That's it! The next article we will talk about how to setup a live data feed to CQG using your AMP account.
