Does Rithmic trade markets on the ICE and Eurex? Just double checking

AFAIK AMP includes both on Rithmic feed.

There's a link to start the conversion in an email Mirus sent today with more instructions/info to follow.

Did they stop Continuum conversions temporarily?

from the latest email:
-If you have not had the opportunity to register to convert your account to Continuum and would like to be notified when registration re-opens, please email notifyme@mirusfutures.com.

Also if you go to Kinetick, a message pops up when you click subscribe notifying you that the rebates have stopped.
http://www.kinetick.com/purchase.php

Maybe they continue the rebates at a later time since I think you need kinetick to run Continuum.

The rebates for Kinetick are likely not coming back. Ray from NT said that he stopped the program with Mirus, we don't know why. Here is his post:

NinjaTrader Support Forum - View Single Post - Now Cancelled for new users: Zen-Fire to Continuum conversion rebate program

So you can still get Kinetick, but no rebate deal as of now.

Not true.

The queue it came to matters if the market did not go below limit price. This is latency and it matters for limit orders.

I read it as there's more than one limit order queue on the exchange (never heard of this). Is that what you meant?

Not true.

AMP do not have Eurex with Rithmic (...yet) but they do have it on CQG for a Euro23 pm extra fee.

Left Mirus

I got pretty nervous mostly because of the non-communication from Mirus. I don't require a lot of hand holding (started trading grains in the '80's) and never had any problems with Mirus. I just didn't want to get into a situation where my margin money was tied up for an extended period of time. I did a fair amount of research on this site, on broker sites, and other forums before deciding to go with Optimus. I have had several communications with Matt, and all have been handled very quickly.

Matt's office acknowledged receipt of my account application, and included some links to other resources at Optimus. One of the links didn't work (no big deal), but I emailed them, and within 30 minutes, I had a response with an alternate link. If that is indicative of their service level, I am in the right place.

I also liked their "no pie in the sky" approach to accounts. Keeping an eye on leverage levels is a really good plan. I don't like keeping more money than necessary at a brokerage, but fully understand their conservative approach to margin requirements. Commissions are not the cheapest I found, but to me, commissions are a small part of the equation. A few cents per trade for superior service is good by me.

I may have more after the account is activated and trading begins. If I do, I will post it on the brokers forum.

These are precisely the reasons that I elected to move to Optimus. And the service level has remained consistent after opening the account. I can't say enough good stuff about these guys.
