Mirus Futures vs Optimus Futures

I'm moving my trading from the spot markets to futures and have settled on a platform (Multicharts) though I'm still undecided on a few things and would appreciate your input.

I've narrowed down my broker choice to Mirus or Optimus Futures. Anyone here have any experience with both of these and/or any preference between the two?

Also I'm considering a feed from either Rithmic or IQ - again any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

I opened accounts with both Mirus and Optimus using NT7 (although only funded Optimus so far). Both are good choices imho and I am very happy overall with Optimus and Rithmic.

One consideration is data feed. I personally have had much better connections with rithmic which you get via Optimus compared to zenfire. I can't comment on Mirus as a broker since have not used them. But have been very happy with Optimus. Matt at Optimus is very responsive if you ever need to talk to him.

Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I have been with Mirus/Rosenthal Collins for several years . I have had no issues with the brokerage.

I have had issues with Zenfire connections in the past, although it has not been an issue lately. I use Ninja Trader and never could determine where the problem originated.

I have never used Optimus, but from conversations with Matt I have found him to be knowledgeable and helpful.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

There is the story about Rithmic / Zen-Fire: "What is Zen Fire?"

Thanks for your help guys.

I think so far I am leaning towards Optimus/Rithmic though by the sound of it Mirus would be fine if I went with them...

You should be happy with Optimus. The rithmic feed has been stellar for me.
