Has anybody else got their funds transferred from Mirus to another broker yet? I sent my request Monday first thing.

Yes, I sent my request to RCG on Thursday and received an account statement from Vision Financial at 02:00 this morning showing the wire in. Ninja sales converted my license key from Zen-Fire to Vision in about 5 minutes after emailing them and Matt at Optimus is working hard to get me setup today.

Dorman offers Trading Technologies and Trading Technologies connects to Ninjatrader. I wonder if Dorman will let me connect to TT with a Mirus account, or if I have to move my funds over to a specific Dorman account. Maybe I should've opened directly with Dorman in the first place since they offer NT/Zenfire but also a range of other options (like CQG) in case I needed them.

Did you already contact Dorman for getting a different datafeed?

I called Dorman just to ask if I could connect to TT with a Mirus account. The person I spoke with said "I believe so" and then transferred me to someone else and I left a voicemail message. When I get a reply I'll let you know. I just opened a new acccount with Mirus recently so my situation (time sensitivity) may be a bit different than others who have been trading with them for a while on a regular basis.

I am quite sure there will be a compliance backslash.

@sam028
according to some movies, (like a certain episode of CBS's The Unit, when the FBI were involved and the Unit had priority, they were indirectly told their actions would be leaked to the news, and by them...), then the only way to make sure is to drop a dime,

call them out,

send a bolo (i.e. be on the look out for...),

clue them in,

...

who knows, this should never have been allowed to escalate from a business dispute over a competitive alternative to their service into a depravation of services and "quantifiable" loss of business as well as documented "trading losses due to system depravation".

FYI

There's an independent IB for Dorman that came out last night saying that there's a possible move:

"Due to this major issue that has affected all of us; Dorman is now working on offering data through CQG Continuum or Rithmic (confirmation pending). They will update me Tuesday morning on the status and how to convert all the clients over to the data provider they have decide to go with. Please do not do anything until you hear from me in regards to the data provider.

When I have official word on which provider Dorman will choose, I will send out another email with instructions on how to make the switch. Nothing will change on your NinjaTrader platform in regards to workspaces, indicators, systems, algos, ect. You will just convert your NinjaTrader license key to the data provider Dorman selects and create a new Account Connection."

As of yet, tho, it is still status quo.

That is not confirmed!

I think just about everyone that they could email received similar email

so what do you think?, because

Mirus is down for the count on 3 reasons:
1) being associated with the failed Zenfire for both data, order routing and risk management

2) not communicating to their customer base, in a manner that the customers deem worthy, and not addressing the frustrations voiced on these and other threads and boards regarding the complete disgust with their customer experiences

3) having leaned too heavily upon automation to the extent that one loose nut unscrewed the whole sche-bang!
