I have Continuum running this morning. I didn't get any data when I loaded this morning. Ninja suggested the instructions below. I now have data but no depth of market information (5 bid and ask prices on DOM). Still waiting for a reply for this. Instructions to receive data...

Please take all Continuum questions to this thread:

https://futures.io/brokers-data-feeds/30143-continuum-cqg.html

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)

Can someone of those, who transferred to Dorman\Rithmic confirm if they are getting Eurex data?
2 Dorman IBs in their threads on this forum: Cannon says Eurex WILL be available and Future Path says it's already available... I emailed Dorman, but haven't got a response yet.

I have personally called an associate in Dorman and they said that Rithmic Eurex is not available yet, no clue how others "have it" already. We are deploying a continuum data feed for those who want Eurex. I spoke to my team today that will do testing on NT while we seek a central platform for risk management. no ETA, but will everyone notified on my co. thread.
Good weekend everyone.
Matt

hi
I got money from Mirus two days ago, so that with the withdrawal of money is no problem

* If investing gets too difficult for a seventh grader to understand, the system is needlessly complex
* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former

So how many days did it take from the time you submitted the funds request to when you got your money?

Mine only took 10 days. If I had known at time who I was going to fund my account with I would have done a transfer and it probably would have taken 2 days.

Still not able to trade with Mirus

I submitted my first request for the new Continuum login on Jan 8th. Then again on Jan 15th.
No response at all from Mirus. I wonder how many accounts they still have to transfer.

Zenfire No More?

I'm not known for posting here on Big Mike's Trading Forum, mostly because I pretty much keep to myself, do my own research, find what works for me and get on with using it. I've always found the articles, the threads, the indicators, the strategies and the general sharing of knowledge in an open forum as it is here @ futures.io (formerly BMT) to be a fantastic resource for traders, new, old, experienced or just curious.

I don't know if my comments here will help anyone, but I am a Mirus client, was using Zenfire and Ninja and was caught by the same maelstrom as all the other ZF-NT-Mirus clients. [I'll try to keep this short].

We all learned what we could when we started out to enable us to trade, we all developed trading plans to learn, prove and trade our methodologies, we studied and we chose indicators and trading styles and methodologies that "spoke to us", we all developed business plans for our trading business and throughout this process we were made aware of risks. One of the risks is trading risk, but that's only one of the risks we faced. We also knew going into this we could face Power failures, Internet outages, Broker problems, Data Feed problems, telephone issues [when the trade desk with 2 people on it has 300 incoming calls an hour] and we all made a point of getting two contact names phone numbers and e-mail addresses at our Broker so we could reach out to one of two people and have an option if person 1 was not available. We prepared for all of these eventualities when we developed our business plans and our trading plans - Right?

We all got back-up power supplies to keep the electronics running in a power failure, we all got redundant internet connections so if one went down presumably the other one would keep us connected, we all have cellphones so if the land lines are down we can still call out, we all put money with more than one broker and we never traded what we couldn't afford to lose without affecting our lives and our families lives. Right?

So why is it that some ZF-NT-Mirus clients, myself included, were able to contact their Broker, ask to be moved over to the CQG or T4 feed and be happily trading again in less than 5 calendar days from the December 29th Zenfire debacle?

Because we planned for the worst, and hoped for the best.

I'm not trying to be a smart aleck here, and I honestly feel sorry for all of you that are stuck and don't know which way to turn, hopefully you can learn from what happened here the same way we've all learned to Love our Losers just as much as we Love our Winners. With any luck the next time something like this happens you'll be prepared and you'll take full responsibility for the outcome of your failure to plan for the worst.

Nuff said.
Good trading.

This is a good question.
I think it's because I did not call them directly. Just filled in their web-forms. Another reason might be that the revenue generated by my trading was not high enough. So, they probably put me at the end of the queue (classified as an unimportant client).
Anyway - since I do not trade for a living it's not a tragedy for me being forced (more or less) to not to trade.
However, the annoying thing is that Mirus did not send any confirmation for my Continuum application nor did they answer the email I sent last week.
