Mirus Futures today announced an alliance with eSignal as one of five firms to feature the new eSignal OnDemand - Mini Futures product for CME Group traders.
Mirus Futures offers the industry leading Zen-Fire trading solution providing traders unprecedented access to real-time market data and order routing. As a participant in the CME Globex waiver fee policy initiative, market data for Mirus customers of eSpeed will be waived by CME Group. The other four firms, Interactive Brokers (IB), PFG, MB Trading, and OptionsXpress will enjoy the same cost savings for their customers but will not be able to offer the advantages of Zen-Fire.
eSignal provides eSignal OnDemand - Mini Futures, a full-featured, active trader platform offering quotes, charts, back testing, the ability to program unique chart studies and includes intraday and historical data. A special trading plug-in allows users to trade from within the product with their choice of brokers that now includes Mirus Futures / Zen-Fire.
"We are excited to have Mirus Futures and Zen-Fire using our eSignal OnDemand - Mini Futures offering," said Chuck Thompson, eSignal president. "By offering our award-winning product line, featured through select brokers, eSignal is able to extend this cost savings advantage."
"Mirus Futures customers who currently use eSignal will be thrilled, they won't have to do anything and they will reduce their fees dramatically," offers Eliot Wickersheimer, Principal of Mirus Futures. "Customers appreciate the option to choose which charting software package works best, but will be more likely to sign up with eSignal now that it's less expensive."
"The ability to trade on Zen-Fire data, from the eSignal OnDemand - Mini Futures platform packs an advantageous punch for CME Group retail traders. The combination of eSignal's comprehensive historical data, with the real-time data of Zen-Fire, gives traders the best of both worlds; boosting an already incredible trading experience for Zen-Fire Traders," says Pat Shaughnessy, Principal of Zen-Fire, a leading provider of professional trading solutions.
