My understanding is this also will affect Optimus Futures - and possibly others as well.

So I called Optimus...promoting MultiCharts ... minimalizing NinjaTrader as a platform.

Where does this leave Optimus ...they still have unadvertised capabilities to hook up NinjaTrader? Would they be able to do this via Rithmic data connections? Inquiring minds would like to know...


With the release of the new Optimus Futures site, we will remove public demos, videos and/or blog posts related to NinjaTrader. NinjaTrader does not allow the on boarding of new customers to certain brokers unless you hold a life time license bought prior to July 2014. So we are not "minimizing", rather we were put in this spot and see no point of showing something we do not have and/or place special requests to be accommodated.

The existing customers that we currently service on NinjaTrader will continue getting our loyal support, and to the credit of NinjaTrader support team, they have supported us as before.
However as we go into the future, our focus would be on other platforms that are not in the brokerage business. For example, MultiCharts, SierraChart, MarketDelta, etc. amongst others that that we are currently looking to create alliances with. The new site will reflect it.

As for other comments: I found no difference in latency, execution, between Continuum and CQG.
You will have to make your own tests to come up with your own conclusions.

Second, you have the TradeStation model all wrong. TradeStation in some instances does allow you to execute with other brokers so long you pay for their platform. For example, You have the capability to automates your orders and route them to InsideEdge, NinjaTrader, etc. Prior to being a brokerage, TS was a software for many years under numerous names and as such kept some features to allow you to execute via others.

Having said all the above, as competitive as the landscape brokerage has become, at Optimus we respect the choices people make. There are different growth stages as a trader, and as such, your choices may be different during these stages.

Thank you,
