It would be interesting if anybody knows the clearing fee of Continuum as I have to move my RCG account to another broker.
My first offer is this:
"$0.50 Continuum fee. You would also pay $10 per month to Continuum"
What do you think about?

I've now sucessfully migrated from Mirus/RCG/Zen-Fire to RCG/Continuum.

No Eurex (but that's ok for me atm).

The only difference is that Mirus covered the Static SuperDOM fees through their commissions and it looks like RCG do not - therefore I'm asked by NT to pay for "transaction credits" for the pleasure of using a ladder where the prices don't jump all over the place (as they do with the unusable Dynamic SuperDOM).

This is a pain, especially for non-US citizens as we get ripped off by banks/PayPal on exchange rates when buying anything in USD. I find it hard to believe a company (Trading Technologies) can manage to patent a static ladder and that other companies haven't told them to get lost - it's effectively a tax on trading that we can do without.

On a positive note I'd like to thank to NinjaTrader - their support and communication has been great throughout this debacle. TVM.

As far as I know Continuum offers Eurex data. I thought you have to choose the right FCM to get Eurex trading?
And RCG did offer Eurex. Now Iam confused why no Eurex at RCG.

I haven't asked them yet - 'only got everything sorted late last night but will enquire today.

RCG definitely clear Eurex (I traded FDAX with Mirus/RCG), and Continuum has Eurex historical data but no tick data/execution (I'm assuming there is an extra charge for Eurex).

Dorman costs

I opened an account directly with Dorman, as I was prev with Mirus/Dorman. The Dorman guys have been great to deal with, although like everyone else they had a sudden spike in activity that was unplanned, so a few things took longer than usual - to be expected at this time IMO.

As far as costs go, I was quoted 4.12 all in round trip on the eminis, they said that is what they have been offering everyone, day margins at 20% ie if NQ is $3300ish then $660 day trading on that one. They said they were trying to get ES lower ie 15% but weren't positive on it happening.

Just an FYI

4/ Continuum does NOT have server side OCO. This one surprised me as CQG has it and I thought Ray from @NinjaTrader said the only difference between the two was marketing and branding.

Continuum does support server side OCO's. Trust me, I am the technology guy!

I was told by Mirus that on their Continuum Eurex data is extra $, "as everywhere with CQG"

They have been a bit slow but I understand they have been migrating a ton of Mirus users over and they have a new(to them) feed (Zenfire) to get many up and running on.

I'm a bit tired of all of this now too, been weeks to get everything sorted out. Most of that was waiting on Mirus to do something, and they couldn't provide me with a reasonable solution in the end, and they lost my trust by ignoring all my calls and emails.
