I am guessing that the reason you are at RCG is because of Mirus, and that if it weren't for Mirus's reco to open your account at RCG you may very well be elsewhere. To that point, Mirus was your front-line support and the company that you researched and chose as the best at the time, and you went with their reco. Do the same now ... don't feel like you have to stay at RCG just because its easiest -- there are other FCMs and Introducing Brokers (Guaranteed and Independent) that can provide you with the technology and service you require.
Wrong. I have an account at Dorman AND RCG (AND Crossland too) to minimize risks - and I moved years ago from another German IB to Mirus with my already established RCG account. They asked me to open a Dorman account, also. In my little reminder I went to Mirus because they offered Ninjatrader in 2006. This was the reason. And I moved my RCG account there, too.

yes you're right that's why I'm with RCG atm (and because they allow funding in GBP unlike Dorman from whom I switched). I chose Mirus because they published their commissions on the site and seemed upfront and open (and because Zen-Fire was free). my experience of IBs in general is negative - it surprised me that the world of futures is so full of sharks.

That's a pretty pompous statement, considering your firm does so little to put itself under a light that would even appeal to new clients. Namely by the lack of information you provide on your website.

Now that its pretty clear that Zenfire is no more I am starting to look for alternatives as the Mirus offering will not do. Its clear this is going to be very frustrating. I visited quite a few IB and FCM sites and most all of them are brimming with marketing BS and fluff with little or no real useful information to help me decide.
I am not one to look for the lowest price but I do expect to know what the commissions, fees and minimums I am going to pay are before I open an account. This apparently will require a call/email request and the resulting constant salesman hounding. That was one of the reasons I chose Mirus, they were up front with costs information.
Is there anywhere here on futures.io (formerly BMT) or elsewhere comparative cost information on popular brokers.
