If General Motors had told their customers the Edsel was not a good purchase, it would have saved their customers a whole lot of hurt. It makes no difference to me what Sierra Chart decides to support - I don't use that platform, and never will. I have used NinjaTrader for years and it consistently meets / exceeds my expectations. I do not use ZenFire, nor do I trade through Mirus. I do not consider it the responsibility of my trading platform provider to make me aware of potential alternatives. That is exclusively my responsibility. As for what @NinjaTrader deserves, based on their body of work and contributions both here and to the trading community in general, I'd say they deserve considerably more credit than I am able to provide.


Wasn't the Edsel a Ford ?

MarketDelta View Post
I wanted to chime in on this post and provide any useful information that I can. MarketDelta, like NinjaTrader, is also a Zenfire vendor and close partner with Mirus and many of the other Zenfire brokers. This Zenfire outage is causing trouble for everyone and I wish it were not so but the fact remains for the time being.

One option which exists for anyone affected by the Zenfire outage would be to just switch over to MarketDelta Trader and power it with CQG data through Dorman. Mirus and any other broker who has a clearing relationship with Dorman can provide CQG access and you can trade immediately. There is no software fee for MarketDelta Trader but there is a $0.10/trade transaction fee. Once Zenfire is back online you can just switch MarketDelta Trader back to Zenfire from CQG.

CQG data is very comparable to Zenfire data and it offers the same Exchanges covered by Zenfire. Best of all you can be trading today if you clear through Dorman. Just contact your broker and tell them you want to start using CQG with MarketDelta Trader.

If you are a NinjaTrader client, CQG is not an option with Mirus or any other broker that clears Dorman or RCG. There may be other order routing system options if you use Ninja but I am not fully aware what they are otherwise I would comment and provide whatever useful information possible.

The bottom line is both vendors (like MD and NT) and traders (you) are being affected by this. There are options to stick with your existing broker and just switch to a different order routing system. If MarketDelta can be of any guidance please let us know.

Best regards,
Trevor Harnett
MarketDelta

Sounds really good....
Two questions:
- is it also possible to switch RCG account to CQG/Marketdelta or only Dorman accounts?
- to whom I should mail my order to switch from Zenfire/Ninjatrader to CQG/MarketDelta as my contact at Mirus (Bob Kamicar) don´t answer any of my mails since at least friday?

I think the CTS option is only for the Cunningham T4 platform

No, Dorman will provide the CTS T4 feed for Sierra Chart as well

Theses are the replies I received regarding RCG:

Thank you for the inquiry. We do have alternatives for RCG accounts, though not with NinjaTrader. They are listed below:

• QTrader, CQG Trader, Integrated Client on CQG
• CTS on T4
• Onyx Plus/Onyx Plus Web on Onyx

If you would like to make the transition, please email us with your account number, name, and choice. Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.


Regards,

Mirus Support


And this concerning Sierra:

Thank you for the reply. SierraCharts will work, but it is the highest pricing level of the platforms. Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.

Regards,

Mirus Support

I would give a look at Optimus instead of AMP.


I have been with AMP since the beginning of my trading career. They have always been good to me and the trading
desk is always manned for emergencies. My support inquiries are answered within the day, typically .

If, however, AMP closed up shop, I would be looking up @mattz at Optimus.

From Dorman


I have just been informed by Dorman that :

"I spoke with my contact at CTS, the T4 will run with any level of Sierra charts(which you probably knew) but once we have you(the customer) set up on T4, Sierra is added on and paid for you the customer. We have no specials running on our end . We are also about to get set up again with Rythmic. We will offer it with Ninja Trader. We will then be able to offer Multi Charts. This should be set to go by Friday I was just informed. Hope this interests you. Talk to you soon. "
