I just opened an account with Mirus & Dorman this week. It was an easy online application and they send you an application to transfer funds from current broker to Dorman.

I have had no problems with my current broker, but found some disturbing past information and I felt Zen-Fire is a better date provider.

which broker did you move from?? if you do not mind saying

I have had an account with Mirus/RCG for 4 years.

The rep was nice, not sure what his name was, haven't had to talk to him since setting up the account.

Had a couple of minor support issues over the 4 years , taken care of by support straight away, very professional and polite.

On two occassions, I had Ninja Trader disconnect problems (non-Mirus related issue). Got through to the order desk immediately to verify positions.

On one occassion, I talked to support at RCG, they handled my request immediately , very courteous and professional.

They said I could use support at Mirus or I could contact them directly.

I have no complaints.

BTW ... the Atlas report ... it's been done to death... one man band trying to raise money for his own account ... in business less than a year... sheesh....

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

A message I sent to Eliot Wickersheimer at Mirus Futures:

Big Mike
This is not the first time I've seen Hard Eight (prop firm) mentioned with regards to Mirus. Would you mind clarifying this and your relationship with Hard Eight?


His reply:


Mirus Futures
I saw your comments about Mirus Futures and wanted to let you know that Hard8 does not own any part of Mirus Futures. Hard8 is a Chicago based proprietary trading group that has no interaction with Mirus Futures in any way. Two individuals in Hard8 are also co-owners in a small Chicago based private equity firm. That firm made an investment in a firm formerly known as 7ticks, which was owned by the same parent company as Mirus Futures. Because of this indirect relationship to Mirus Futures, NFA regulation requires that they be listed as “owner only” participants in the company. These individuals have no involvement with the day to day operations of Mirus Futures, and more importantly, Mirus Futures has absolutely no relationship with Hard8 or any other proprietary trading firm.

Look at, IGOR CHERNOMZAV, CALEB FRYER FISHKIN, hard eight guys, they have 10% or more financial interest in MIRUS FUTURES LLC, not just 7ticks.
They are principal approved for MIRUS FUTURES, so I believe mirus is lying.
But that wouldn't be the first time in my experience I used them for years and they always lie.

@1nfinlty, of course you are entitled to your opinion. Personally, I would never trust AMP given my experience with them.

So I would never trust AMP, and you never Mirus - that is the beauty of choice!

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.
