Yes, in regards to the current status, that's correct.

As an alternative, you might ask them to transfer your account to Dorman directly in order to avoid the need for a Kinetick subscription.

Just check this carefully.

Ray from @NinjaTrader has made it clear that the Continuum deal for NT (the one that does not need Kinetick) is NOT available to Dorman (nor Mirus for that matter) but is to RCG.

It was not an NT decison, but Ray said he is not at liberty to say who or why Dorman was excluded.

Unless of course this has all changed over the weekend.

Yes, I received a mail from Mirus one hour ago.

BUT, it was without login data.

The fields for login name and password are empty LOL

What a fail!

Can anyone confirm receiving the mail without login data or is it just me?

Yes...I have Continuum running. Received an email 2:14pm (CDT). Logon USER and PASS....everything seems to be working.

I will try Continuum for a bit...but I am considering a move to Optimus.

Confirming Continuum/Kinetick working since Sunday open. As usual, way too slow to trade yet, but the account info etc is correct.

I've had Kinetick running though as of last Thursday. Feels like okay feed, responsive and whatnot. Forgot the market depth while subscribing, they added it in no time and said that Mirus will be reimbursing me for that too (jan/feb).

So, finally the money stream is back

p.s. oh, and server side oco, unlike zen: courtesy of cqg.

thanks for saying this,
I was going to try similar, however, I would have someone from Mirus (presuming that is the target brokerage provider) verify that all things are as they should be, before risking live funds behind what seems to be normal...


thanks

I've always liked zenfire data. I did extensive comparisons with iqfeed and the bid/ask was nearly identical. My concern about other datafeeds is that the bid/ask might not be as accurate and that's important for my tools.

Well, before NY Zenfire was just a rebadged Rithmic. So go with any Rithmic broker and you'll get exactly the same data (ususally minus Eurex, though). AFAIK CQG is at least as accurate as Rithmic, but a bit more expensive on commissions.

cunparis View Post
My main criteria is I want something that's not expensive because I don't trade that much. with Mirus I was happy because I just needed 5 trades and there was no fee so that was easy to do.
...
if I can i'd like something with no monthly fee, low minimum trade requirement and a bid/ask that's good (doesn't have to be perfect).

AMP has no minimum or inactivity fee and offers both Rithmic and CQG (plus TT).
