Good question, I'm curious too. My guess is that if Canadians were allowed to open accounts with US brokers, then Canadian brokers would probably lose all their local customers..

There are provincial laws that each FCM obeys by and permits accordingly.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

Dear traders,

Zen-Fire connection is still not available. Our colleagues at Zen-Fire informed that there is no ETA for launching a new API connection into production yet. As a workaround you can use CQG instead of Zen-Fire. Also we suggest to contact your broker and have them inform you about your options.

Canadians


There is no national equivalent to the SEC in Canada, each province regulates it's own securities differently. Therefore, not all American brokers meet each province's distinct regulatory requirements. Stupid as that seems...

Therefore each clearing firm will be different, I'm in Ontario and can't open with Optimus (Vision wont clear for my province) but Dorman will only clear for those from Ontario, for example.

after all the bad press,
after all the mandatory and unjust inactivity fees imposed through Mirus and Dorman for Zenfire datafeed....

after all the stress, lies, incompetence and outright stupidity of Zen and how they or whomever could not maintain sufficient programming staff necessary to minimize the downtime of whatever really happened...

after all the failed: "just one more week" excuses, or "no communication whatsoever" to the brokers who maintain the customer relationship with the traders...

after all the failed alternate means of datafeed replacement...
after having screwed with these FCM's, IB's and other brokerage agents' customers (us traders)...

why ever trust this zen-stupidity ever again?

why?

let them go the way that they sentenced everyone else to....

Depends what province that you are in, not all US brokers support each province. I'm with Dorman, and only Ontarians can open accounts with them. If you are from elsewhere I understand Optimus will help you out just fine.

Amp will open an account for you too, I've had mixed results with them.

This thread is about Zen Fire. Please use the Brokers subforum to ask about other brokers.

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.

Mirus + Ninja + Continuum ?


So - several months on - I am finally downloading the Ninja / Continuum demo via Mirus (having traded via TradeStation so far in 2014).

Would anyone who has been using this combo in recent months please let me know if you are happy with it ? Or if you were unhappy with it, to which broker / datafeed did you change & is your new combo satisfactory ?

Btw, as a longtime TradeStation user, it's fine and a great, free solution except for day trading futures on fast charts : very limited reduced intraday margins & the Matrix is clunky compared with Ninja's DOM.
