So that would mean Sierra chart charge of $27/mo (assuming monthly subscription on lowest level)
plus Sierra Chart data charge of $35/month
plus roundtrip cost of $4.64/contract on something like CL (commission and fees)
Is that about what you calculate?

That would be correct if I would be using the package 3 Sierra. I have to use package 5 however which is the only package with footprints (they call it number bars) and volume profile. I just checked their pricing when I wanted to answer your question and it seems that they lowered the price for package 5 just after I subscribed for 1 year They charge 40 USD/month now, but if you subscribe for 1 year it's 31.20 USD/month + the data 35 USD/month. Together 66.20 USD.
IB roundturn commision is around 4.02 USD/contract for US index futures which I am trading mostly (NQ, YM, ES) and approx. 4 eur for EUREX products (FDAX, FESX, FGBL).

I changed the thread title from "Zenfire Mirus drops Sierra" to "Sierra drops Zen Fire Mirus", it was bugging me too much and I think it more accurately reflects the situation.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

amp futures offered me package 3 sierra with no monthly charge, but on a 50 cent transactional basis.
It uses TT data feed and I really like it. It has no draw volume profile or TPO in the package 3 version.
I tried xtrader, but did not like it.
I opened a sub account under my main account, and they let me use it on that account.
IT is a good way to check out sierra with no monthly charge to see if you like it.
I have to keep ninja also , because there is an auto strategy on ninja that I have not been able to convert to the others yet. Again, a sub account lets me keep all platforms up and running. Easy to move money between accounts as needed for margin.
I am setting the 3rd account up with rithmic this week.
Also, I no longer worry about whether to use this platform or that platform. I just keep them all handy !
cqg, rithmic and TT

I am keeping the Mirus account but opening another. This thing will settle down (more the Zen-Fire with NinjaTrader) eventually, and in the time being it gives a good incentive to test drive something new. I was very happy with zenfire/mirus, so not panicking and closing the door there.
I went to Optimus with @mattz. So far, I am liking the feeling that we are in the same state, even though Vision is not. My thoughts were, ZenFire's cousin is Rithmic, and I might actually get to drink a few with a broker. lol!!!
