New Info from Mirus received

NinjaTrader with Continuum from Mirus:
No Kinetick Required!
January 13th, 2014 - 5:30 pm CT (6:30 pm ET)



Continuum institutional quality order execution with market data included is now available for NinjaTrader users through Mirus Futures.

This new connectivity option has been added to NinjaTrader which features an updated Continuum adapter. This adapter eliminates the need for an additional Kinetick subscription for market data.

Your new Continuum connection through Mirus will include both order routing and market data services for NinjaTrader.

We will be providing additional details to blocks of Mirus clients beginning tomorrow to connect to Continuum to trade your Mirus account using NinjaTrader.

This connectivity solution is available for Mirus accounts clearing through Dorman Trading. For Mirus clients clearing through another clearing firm, you can transition your account to Dorman today by starting the application process through the link below:

Open Your New Mirus Account at Dorman

For Mirus clients that converted to Continuum with the Kinetick add-on through last week's rebate program, your current solution and the associated rebates remain active. We will be providing specific details later this week for you to update to the latest version of NinjaTrader.

If you have any questions, please contact your broker here at Mirus or Mirus Support at 312.262.1288.


(p.s.Ray from NT confirmed this new information at the NT forum)

Ok, I'm a fairly new client of Mirus and have RJO clearing. While it would be easy to jump ship, our rep is great an quickly responds to all of my questions. Since I'm happy with their fees and and customer service, I want to carefully consider their newest offering before jumping ship.

Can anyone give me info on the quality of Continuum and also of Dorman?

Thanks!

Chez

I just started with Contiuum last night....so I can't say much about them yet.
I've used Dorman Clearing for one my trading accounts (along with Mirus) since 2010. I've had no problems with Dorman clearing....and until this mess, Mirus has been good to deal with.
Everyone's experience is of course different....

Prior to this announcement this evening, one of my serious considerations was to repaper with Dorman directly and use Rithmic. I have been very happy with Dorman over the years and have no concern staying with them now. Dorman has proven themselves worthy and are now standing with Mirus with the new Guaranteed IB commitment.

I plan to give this new arrangement a fair trial, then go from there. Hopefully this transition will go smoothly for all parties involved.

now you're making sense.

I made a lot of tests, especially with zen-fire. I've never seen (not saying it never happened) a trade on the wrong side. on the bid side instead the ask or vice versa.

what I've seen are buys above the ask and sells below the bid.

when analysing my zen-fire feed, I got bid/ask updates after every trade. so for me, zen-fire was perfectly fine for order flow. actually liked it better than IQfeed/kinetick

If you see a trade above the ask, then you are seeing the issue. In that scenario, you will also be seeing sell market orders printing green. I don't know how you are validating that those sell market orders are on the right/wrong side but I would suggest that if it's by looking at the bid/offer - then that is the wrong approach because the bid/offer are not up to date at that time as shown by a print above the offer.

A shame that Zens not available as I have both connections and could send a screen shot showing the difference between the two.

If you run IQFeed next to Zenfire at the open - all will become clear.

This is a well known issue and has been discussed at length by Fulcrum trader in other threads. You don't use Zenfire for Cumulative delta & footprint charts if you want them accurate.

That's why Mirus put out the video to explain to people what these feeds are for. Zenfire - performance over accuracy.

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

Mike, with all due respect that thread is elite-only, and maybe it's only me, but this post feels a bit like sales push to me...
So I took liberty to start a new thread for this.

It's not a sales pitch. The discussion has happened years ago abs that is where the OP put the thread.

Any subsequent threads on duplicate topics will be closed to prevent split topics.

If you don't want to be an Elite member no problem, just know most the site content is unavailable to you.
