I am sure working with Mirus has positive sides....here is one negative from today.....(you can read more on NT forum at Orders below last traded price - NinjaTrader Support Forum ) .......

so, not all sim trading order executions are available in live trading.......Mirus will not allow you to on-the-fly convert stop order to market order.......what that means is, you basically cannot place your order and then later change it to a better-priced order if the current market price presents itself........I've attached an avi file (inside zip file) demonstrating order modification I am talking about........in short, Mirus will deny you market scalping ..... this limitation is imposed by Mirus and not NT, Exchange or Dorman (confirmed by Mirus on-staff developer) ...... maybe this is non issue with slow markets, but I think it is really crippling trade options in fast markets such as CL or today's 6E ... attached images show lost profit of +4t when order modification was executed........

why not try SIM first to see if it works?......well, that is my where my problem is with Mirus...........in SIM they let you think that such order modification is possible but try it live and you'll learn the opposite .......

Mirus hold My check 10 business day!

Mirus hold My check 10 business day! Is it new standard or personal attention?


"Slava,

The funds have not been added to the account though. There is a 10 business day holding period before the funds are available for trading.

Thanks,
Brian"

Yes, perfectly normal. Use a wire transfer if you are in a hurry.

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.

This is a relatively new policy at Mirus. They sent out an email in advance telling customers about the change in policy. This is also mentioned on their website.

Let's keep the Mirus thread about Mirus, if you want to talk about Optimus use this thread:

Or you can send a PM to @mattz directly.

Thx,

I've had a great experience with Mirus so far until today. Connection was lost to the feed for about an hour in the early morning. But I heard it wasn't just me. A lot of people in the trading room I happened to be in , also with Mirus and Zenfire (also some with AMP and Zenfire too) had the same problem at the same time, and we waited until it came back online.

But other than that, it has been great. The fastest fills and non-slippage I've ever had. And reasonable fees. And no deluge of constant spam email, just my RCG statements.

Very happy with Mirus / ZenFire / NT7 combo for intraday futures trading.

FWIW, I just closed my TradeStation account after many years, still have IB for spot FX, and also Saxo for longer-term trades (all instruments).
