Sierra drops Zen Fire Mirus

Zenfire Mirus drops Sierra !

The finger-pointing-blame-game has already started.

The user is left in the middle alone !

To me, Zenfire/Mirus + Sierra was the most powerful combination.

TY for the nice Christmas gift.

Your first post seems incorrect. You say Zen Fire drops Sierra. But it is actually Sierra who drops Zen Fire based on their own words and posts.

Mike , I dont know who did what.

I am only the little trader in the middle.

The last changes made by Zenfire, will lead to:

Sierra and Zenfire do not support each other

I hope they will work out a solution.

Based on the posts by Sierra Chart, they decided against implementing the new Zen Fire API. The new API is a requirement since the agreement between Rithmic and Zen Fire ends December 31st and was not renewed.

Sierra Chart does not want to implement any API by anyone, they want everyone to use their new API instead. They are not singling Zen Fire out and have admitted as much in their posts.

It is not clear about what they are doing with BigTick. At least not to me. I would only guess they are also not implementing it for the same reasons. This would go for any data feed of any kind going forward, I presume. If it doesn't use their own API format, they will discontinue it. That is my take away at least.

Yes, I just found out. Great Christmass gift for me from SCH and ZenFire. Thank you very much. I am very dissapointed. Mirus was my broker from 2009, but they make it very difficult for me to continue to cooperate with them. First I bought NinjaTrader life license, 2 years ago I started to use Volume Profile which was not natively supported by NT. So altough I got the life time license I am using SierraChart which has it but I pay 25USD/month (something like that) and I bought it for one year last month. Only to find out that they will stop support ZenFire from 1.1.2014. Nice!

To be honest I am not really interested in the finger pointing game at this point. Only thing I know is that I am not able to use my trading setup anymore and therefore I am deciding what to do after 1.1.2014.

I just need to clarify one more thing. After 1.1.2014 I will be not able to use the ZF datafeed. But am I able to trade directly from SCH, when I use Mirus as a broker? Probably not, but can someone clarify please. If this is the case then it doesnīt make any sense for me to use Mirus anymore.

I am deciding between the SCH datafeed which seems to be very similar to ZenFire (meaning very good) and the IQ feed which is littlebit more expensive, but offers also reliable NYSE TICK. The one from SCH sucks. And if I am not able to trade from SCH with Mirus, I will be in a market for a new broker as well.

Sierra Chart is fully capable of implementing the new API, they just don't want to. On the other side of things, Mirus probably didn't give them a lot of heads up time to do so and I would imagine Sierra didn't like that very much.

If you are a customer of both Sierra and Mirus, my advice would be to complain to both of them equally. If enough people speak up there will be a solution. If insufficient people speak up, then there will not be a solution because Sierra Chart and Mirus make business decisions on where they spend their resources.

On a side note, NinjaTrader implemented the new API already.

BigMike: I got life time license for NT. But they were not able (or not willing to - to be exact) to implement Volume Profile in their software. So I donīt care if they implemented API from ZenFire because I donīt use NT anymore.

A couple more reasons to choose NinjaTrader over Sierra Charts.
