Noticed a lot votes for Zen-Fire... Unfortunately, I think it's official that Zen-Fire will cease to exist soon, direct from Jonathan Walden. (Forums - Rithmic Announces Nonrenewal of Zen-Fire Use)

I called this prediction correctly before, 5 months ago:

I don't think it's any surprise, since Mirus has been developing BigTick to move away from Rithmic.

But off-topic for this thread. Feel free to post in another thread so can be discussed in detail.

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.

Best Trading Platform - Jigsaw if a platform merely has to perform order entry - if you want charts as well then I suppose NT but I think this will change next year.

Could be a good thing.

Ninja + Zen is costing other brokers 60c per round turn to provide to their clients. This does not even include clearing fees.

Rithmic isn't going to just disappear, so I'd expect them to be reacting to this.

With a new player on the scene, if that 60c stays at that level for both rithmich & Bigtick, we are looking at price collusion. I'd rather hope that what we will see is a bit of competition. I'd love to see that for some of the smaller brokers as right now they can deliver good service but find it hard to compete on price.

Ultimately, what exists now isn't really in our interests.

If you have any questions about the products or services provided, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread
