There's a thread over on elitetrader right now with various people claiming they've had trouble getting through to the Mirus trading desk when they need to close trades. Their issues aren't limited to the Zen Fire crash the other day, and seem to be scattered over the past few weeks. Hopefully this has something to do with Mirus' move to a new office and is only temporary. Has anyone here had trouble getting through to the trading desk (aside from ZF crash day)?

My broker at amp just told me that they're going to clear through themselves, as opposed to dorman...
Im a little uncomfortable with that, since they are a very small firm....
I'de like to hear some experiences with them as well......

Im thinking about giving them a shot....

Yeah, I got this email from Amp (used to have an account):


Quoting 
Sept. 14, 2010 - We are proud to announce the launch of AMP Global Clearing, LLC NFA ID: 0412490 effective October 1, 2010. The company's global headquarters is located at 221 North LaSalle Street, 24th floor, Chicago, IL 60601.

Our goal is to combine high-end products and services at competitive prices; delivering the best possible trading experience for our customers.

Attention to AMP Trading Clients:
Dorman Trading, LLC mailed you a letter notifying AMP clients of transferring their futures accounts to AMP Global Clearing, LLC. We have worked closely with Dorman Trading and Zenfire to make this a smooth transition; all traders will use the same NinjaTrader username and passwords (no change required to the platform) - even the same account number. All the current account information will be transferred, such as email address, phone and physical address - there will be nothing needed from you.

This conversion process will enable our company to improve our performance by adding new in house services such as:
• Online Customer Statements and Equity Runs
• Online Customer Portal for online account management
• Global Exchange Connectivity
• 24-hour In-House Technical Support and Order Desk
• Expanding the available funding options (USD, EUR, AUD, GBP, HKD, JPY, NZD)

Wouldn't think twice about it. Dorman isn't the Federal Reserve or Fort Knox. Your money is just as safe sitting at a AMP bank as a Dorman one. And besides, your account is probably real small anyway. Odds are, you will blow it out before AMP goes bust, so why sweat the details.

P.s. Mirus is a very small shop with lots of marketing exposure. You might be able to count their sum total of employees on both hands.

Sorry, but I deal in facts, not dreams. I learned the hard way by losing a shitload before I became consistently profitable. I was luckier than most because I had a huge cushion and could sustain the losses.

Sorry to get off topic but, if there weren't newbies coming into the market to feed it money, there wouldn't be big shots like you taking it.... 'nuf said

Very flattrering, but I am hardly a big shot, heavy hitter, or one of "them" who extracts cash out of the market like taking candy from a baby. I work like hell to make a profit, and worry about losing my edge every day. Don't believe those who tell you this business is a walk in the park.

Amp is a bigger firm than they used to be. Their new office is much bigger than the old one and they have a decent number of people.

Mirus, Dunno.

Well, I had a great laugh at the demands on Tony. If I were Tony, I'd dump this new account before I got a headache.

Regarding AMP - isn't this a good development? Better to control the whole process if you're big enough and can get the economies of scale. Accounts are still segregated the same as dorman.

Regarding Mirus being an IB - how much risk is there with an IB vs FCM? Given that futures are same day settlement and Mirus uses Dorman or RCG, aren't your funds segregated the same as well?
