Mirus Futures was an online futures broker focused on implementing advanced technology, service, and support to a wide range of traders and money managers.[1] It was acquired by NinjaTrader, LLC in July 2014.[2][3]

About Us[edit]

Mirus Futures was founded in February 2004 by Pat Shaughnessy and Eliot Wickersheimer.[4] with the goal of providing futures traders with training, education, and support in the ever-changing electronic marketplace.

Initially focusing on professional money managers and automated trading groups, Mirus evolved into a full-service brokerage firm specializing in new technologies, networks and trading applications. Though now serving more than 20,000 retail clients in addition to its core base of professional traders and groups, Mirus still maintains its personal touch and one-on-one relationships with traders of all types. With the help of overseas affiliates and institutional clients, Mirus now serves traders world-wide. As the first firm to help launch the Zen-Fire network,[5] Mirus provides support to traders via phone, email, instant message, and remote desktop support. Mirus specializes in supporting and servicing traders using the NinjaTrader platform as well as automated systems trading and development. Mirus concentrates on providing full support to traders via phone, email, instant message, and remote desktop support to ensure all clients are helped immediately.

The Mirus team consists of experienced floor traders, pit brokers and electronic traders as well as skilled network technicians and software developers. Mirus’ number one goal is to provide faster, more reliable networks and applications that can facilitate advanced trading strategies so the traders can concentrate on their methods and algorithms.

Mirus Futures is a registered member of the National Futures Association (NFA) governed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
