ranger64,

I think in this case Sierra recommends to switch to CTS within Mirus. This seems to be ok for Mirus.

Check the Sierra forum, there was a post about this.

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.

I use MC on main account with cqg

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

shane

According to the cost calculator you should only be paying 1,66 per side (eminis), are you paying 50 cents on top of that? or 1,16 exchange fee + 50 cents per side?

Excuse you, nothing was deleted. Please be more careful before making an accusation.

Mike

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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

"Mirus Futures Client Update
January 6th, 2014 - 8:00 pm CT (9:00 pm ET)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Traders,

The stability of your trading solution remains our number one priority. Following the ZenFire service interruptions experienced over the past week, we want to ensure you have additional options to trade your account.

We are currently exploring multiple solutions for our traders and expect to have an update on an alternative connection within 24 to 48 hours.

In addition, you can transition your current Mirus account to an interim trading solution based on your FCM.

To start your transition, please contact your broker here at Mirus or Mirus Support at 312.262.1288 to discuss the connectivity options currently available.

Thank you again for your continued patience."



AKA, "heat"... they got on the wrong side of this "trade"

At least, in a smaller timeframe

MarketDelta implemented the new API already as well. It is available via MarketDelta Trader.

OK, but hopefully we can establish better connectivity in this industry between clients and servers. If you would like to join us on DTC we would be more than happy.

And from what we can see, there are currently serious connectivity problems to Zen-Fire. The new Big tick Zen-Fire, clearly was not ready for production use. This has been proven.

What good is it if users cannot connect, at least for the time being. What if Zen-Fire does not survive because trading customers move to other backend trading platforms. Then all of the development time that was spent was for nothing. We spend time on the new Zen Fire API as well before I made the decision to halt. There was not a good feeling about it.

Based on the discussions both here and on the Sierra forum, my opinion is that Sierra appears to be making the tough and less popular decision in the short term in an effort to ensure a better long term.

I use to work in IT (various areas) for 8 years and it was common place for quick fixes to be imposed on us by business, clients etc,...only to find ourselves having to rewrite and do things properly years down the line. The end result being double work and putting up with inefficient technology just to kick the can down the road. Not to mention how messy things got (in terms of code, architecture etc)

Do things right the first time. Well done Sierra.

Diversification is the only free lunch

Eggs and Baskets


Clearly this is a total muddle and Mirus will pay for it one way or another.

If you are live trading you should have a technical setup that has works well together but you should avoid bundled solutions.

- Charting
- Broker Connection
- Market Data

should not be bundled and should be separate. I understand the "one stop shop" solution and see that they are competitively priced but that is all your eggs in one basket. Avoid it. It is just good risk management practice.
