Quoting 
#COMEX 14-9807-BC
Effective Date18 June 2015

NON-MEMBER:
MIRUS FUTURES LLC (now known as NinjaTrader Brokerage )
RULE VIOLATION:
432. GENERAL OFFENSES

It shall be an offense:
Q. to commit an act which is detrimental to the interest or welfare of the Exchange or to engage in any conduct which tends to impair the dignity or good name of the Exchange;

W. for any party to fail to diligently supervise its employees and agents in the conduct of their business relating to the Exchange;
FINDINGS:
Pursuant to an offer of settlement Mirus Futures LLC (“Mirus” or the “Firm”) presented at a hearing on June 16, 2015, in which Mirus neither admitted nor denied the rule violations upon which the penalty is based, a Panel of the COMEX Business Conduct Committee (“BCC”) found that it had jurisdiction over Mirus pursuant to Exchange Rule 418 and that on January 6, 2014, Mirus failed to adequately monitor the operation of its trading platform (Zenfire), and connectivity of its trading system (Zenfire) with Globex. This failure resulted in unusually large and atypical trading activity by several of the Firm’s customers and caused the mass entry of order messages by Zenfire, which resulted in a disruptive and rapid price movement in the February 2014 Gold Futures market and prompted a Velocity Logic event.

The Panel found that as a result, Mirus violated Rules 432.Q. (Conduct Detrimental to the Exchange) and 432.W. (Failure to Supervise).
PENALTY:
In accordance with the settlement offer, the Panel ordered Mirus to pay a fine to the Exchange in the amount of $200,000.
