Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Shout-out to Matt over at Optimus for helping me transfer brokers. Super nice guy and professional, answered all my questions and got me set up to trade live in no time!

So far Rithmic data feed has been rock solid and FAST.

Guys, due to the legal nature of this I have to edit my first reply, I respectfully ask that all matters of concern could be addressed with me via matt (AT) optimusfutures.com.
I can provide you with public records as far as Vision's strength as an FCM.

Thank you for the question. This is absolutely the same company.

We maintain a number of different websites for different purposes, for example the main one you mentioned first shows our entire slew of products such as online trading, managed, hosting, systems, and our broker assisted phone execution.
On the other hand a site Tick to Trade is a site we have dedicated to the Rithmic connectivity so people can try out the different demos. We even have a site dedicated to NinjaTrader+Rithmic called TradersPlatform (Google it).

I am sorry if there is any confusion but we thought that a number of sites would separate the specific services people are looking for. However, as I mentioned, they are all under Optimus Trading Group.

Matt,

Any reason why you do not reply to emails at all or very quickly these days? Do you have an increased workload that prevents you in doing so?

When I initially contacted you about a year and a half ago you were very responsive and helpful however, recent emails have either been replied to over a week later or not at all which doesn't fill me with confidence.

Kind Regards

EDIT - have just requested Vision's public records as above by email.

I am sorry you feel this way. We actually add staff for technical support.

I see that your last email to me directly has been in July according to my records.
You have our Skype OptimusTradingSupport that we have set up for international customers.
You have used it in the past and aware that you can reach us that way as well, and I see that we did
not have a message from you for six months on it.

Also, you have the ability to call us directly in the event that you see emails are not sufficient.
I have replied to your email.
Thank you for your understanding and please reach out again any time needed.

Matt

Thank you OPTIMUS!!!

I just wanted to let everyone know that my migration from Mirus / RCG to Optimus / Vision is now complete. I started the process last Thursday and I just completed a test trade on the new platform. After I executed 1*1 I rang the Optimus trade desk to verify the position, they were quick and responsive and confirmed that the position was as expected. I also logged into the Vision portal and confirmed the same. I will extend my gratitude to Optimus for their very fast and positive response to my situation. Everyone I have dealt with over there has been awesome. They even sent me a hug back when I e-hugged them. Cheers Matt, you guys rock.

Oh, and while I was waiting for the funds to be moved Matt set me up with a demo account and so far the data feed has been stable, no disconnects, and as fast as I would expect...

This is a note to let everyone know that Optimus Futures is in the process of becoming a futures.io (formerly BMT) site sponsor again.

There will be a webinar that covers the products and services offered by Optimus Futures soon.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Optimus


I have never really had a problem with Mirus. I have been following this thread. I haven't been able to trade since the new year started from the issues with Zenfire. After much consideration, I have decided to move money from Mirus to a new broker. I really appreciate all the posts and have learned so much from everyone. I am grateful. Many people have commented on how good Optimus is. I have yet to read anything negative about them, so I just called their customer service number to leave a message as it was late (9pm EST). To my surprise a gentlemen named Matt answered the phone. He was extremely helpful, professional and courteous. He addressed all of my concerns and exceeded my expectations. WOW!! Now I can relate to what others have been posting. Thank you all for sharing your experiences for others to learn from. I will be a new Optimus account holder soon! Customer service is truly the key. And Matt, if you are reading this, you are the best! Thank you so much for your time and wonderful assistance. God bless! Rick
