hi to all

I would like to say a few words. Companies Mirus and Dorman do not meet the highest standards of today to me, I can not get simple answers and also do not solve my technical questions for 6 days. To be honest, I long to restrain myself but now I can say, these people are not particularly worried about what that individual traders, they are most concerned about saving his own ass or something, now I'm a little worried about it already, and today I started to learn about the opinions other companies where I can get a timely response to their requests

thanks

I agree there clearly appears to a bit of butt covering going on at Mirus....however, having said that...the account reps at Mirus are buried under an avalanche of requests.

NinjaTrader has stepped up...(even though this is NOT a Ninja problem)....and Ninja Support can help with many (but not all) technical issues that relate to connections, "how-to's"....etc.

I'm trying to close my account and transfer my funds from Mirus to another broker,but I wrote 4 emails so far and I haven't got a single reply from them...Very pissed. Any suggestions,traders?

Use the Withdraw Funds form on the Mirus site. Mine was wired out the next day.

Feedback on futures.io (formerly BMT) ...... has seemed pretty good....I just wanted more info on detail fees.....

Why is it that talking about fees and commissions is taboo and brokers here don't just come forward and say here are my total r/t commissions and fees instead asking one on a public forum to e-mail them?

Yes, there are different fees for different packages, but Mirus did that with no problems. It will go a long way for Ex-Mirus members to trust and switch or sign up their new accounts with these outfits.

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

Do you know if continuum supports simulated stops?

Hi, does anyone know if Continuum (Mirus/Dorman) contains Nyse TICK ($tick)? Or if it is available as some kind of additional paid subscription?

Thank you and sorry if it is offtopic.

Technically it is available through this feed however, this is an entitlement that your broker needs to enable. There is an additional cost for this to the broker. Whether or not they charge you is a discussion between you and them.

margins are important in having the decision to utilize or safe harbor your own trading funds and in deciding your appropriate level of risk management relative to the particular trading circumstances and contract.

whenever these replacement brokers start out by trying to convince you that you need $2,500 per contract margin, and why its beneficial, just inform them of what you had at Mirus and AMP, and $400 intraday and $500 intraday margins are very common and readily available.

watch the conversation switch immediately away from your question....

your response might be to....(what)?

1) hang up after thanking them politely

2) see how they justify their decision and try to impress you, (iow) keep listening and open an account

3) go to the next suggested replacement broker on your list...
