I also had problems with disconnects couple of weeks ago. After CQG switched/changed my profile from connecting to US-Servers to London-Servers i had no problems anymore.

How did you manage to do that?

I wrote an Email to CQG-Support (websupt@cqg.com) with my Broker-Information.

First i asked Mirus to switch my profile, but they have had no idea. Then i asked CQG and Mirus answered back that they changed it. ?!

There is another thread in this forum about this "problem". I will search and post the link ...

Clarification on Continuum:

NinjaTrader R20 and later includes
- Order routing
- Real time and historical data
- Server side OCO


NinjaTrader R19 or earlier includes:
- Order routing
- Real time and historical data through a required Kinetick subscription (Kinetick - Streaming real time quotes and historical market data)
- Server side OCO

I recently switch to RCG/Continuum for being able to trade Hang Seng HKFE/HSI.
Then I realized (by NT support) that Continuum historical data is provided by Ninjatrader, with support of 'most commonly traded instruments", thus for example, MHI (mini HSI) or HHI (China H share index), and VHS (HSI Vix) are not supported. Well, disappointing but ..

Now comes this --> even for supported instrument such as HSI, there's almost a week of historical data missing!

2/28/2014 15 min chart for 10 days, the following two pictures show the difference between IB and Continuum!
Please keep the CQG reputation, beating Interactive Brokers's backfill data quality is not exactly a high standard!

Mirus/Continuum

Hi All,

Hope I'm posting in the correct forum. I was trading in sim today on the TF during regular trading hours. Account with Mirus/Continnum connection, Ninjatrader 7 version 21.

The slippage was pretty noticeable. My question: Is anyone else trading live with Mirus/Continuum having noticeable slippage problems with regard to profit targets and stop loss targets?

Thanks in advance,

Madelynn Johnson

Why didnt you upgrade to R22 as NinjaTrader made major improvements for the Continuum feed.
NinjaTrader Version 7

Just want to share and save you from something ...

My experience with Mirus/CQG/Dorman was until Friday last week just fine, until i convert EUR>Dollar.
After i recieved my Daily Statement i was very angry.

Dorman took $49.95 for conversion! RCG no fee!

Now i am searching for a new broker and clearing.

I read your post and checked my last statement (march 13th) where an USD debit from trading losses was converted against my EUR -
they credited 325.81USD and debited me 265.88EUR - what means an conversion loss of 42.93 USD!! (they stated 1.3869 conversion rate!!)

In my opinion its worse if they collect any fee for conversion, but more worse that there is not any information on the statement about any collected fee.

I contradicted just now - I will post here when ("if") I receive any answer.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the update. I didn't know there was an upgrade. I just upgraded a few weeks ago to v. 21. Seems like "someone", i.e., Mirus or an e-mail from Ninjatrader would alert you to these things.

Once again, thanks.
