As client from Mirus / Zenfire and NT i have been looking for other firms especially for trading the dax. One of the compagny''s, CANNON TRADING, phoned me 2 times and they offered me trading the dax at a flat rate of 4$ roundturn, no extra data fees or other fees (as connexion fees for Eurex )and thru CQG.
I am still awaiting other firms to contact me ( they promised to Phone me ) to see what they offer.
I am making no publicity for Cannon trading. This is just an expierence and info would like to share for those looking to trade especially the dax.
Big Mike closed other topics related to the issues with Mirus Futures and directed OPs to this thread. And since Mirus has been so silent on this thread, it's not surprising to find users looking for alternatives to get out of the predicament.
Yes this thread is going in all directions, including the promotion of competing firms, but that can be seen as a welcoming addition to the void left by Mirus Futures (No updates at all on their twitter account or on their blog). The alternative might have been plenty of smaller threads where OPs vent their misfortune.
I don't see how the behavior can be classified as "territorial opportunist" when quite a few members have voiced their desire to find an alternative.

came to nobody to mind thought of the embedded advertizing around Mirus Futures / zenfire / bigtick, as you know bad things are more attracted to people ;-)
* If investing gets too difficult for a seventh grader to understand, the system is needlessly complex
* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former
I think it is the best way you can get information.
I know that the thread theme talks about zen-fire no more BUT because of the really bad mirus support and the suddenly upcoming meltdown, I am really glad to have ppl like @mattz here to offer alternatives!
And it is all in just one thread. No need to look around and search for more and more information about other solutions. Time is money and why not pushing it all in one thread. Keep on going guys!
