    I'm going to be doing custom software development against an API and I've pretty much decided that I want to use zen-fire, so...

    My next questions is which brokerage to use that will allow me to use the zen-fire API?

    Which brokerage to use that offers:

    1) <= $2500 minimum to open account

    2) <= $1000 ES intraday margin

    3) highly competitive commissions (even for low volume)

    4) No monthly fees

    5) No minimum activity

    Any recommendations?

    Related... I recently saw some posts about people signing up with Dorman/Mirus or RCG/Mirus--why would one choose to go with Dorman/RCG as opposed to direct with Mirus?

    Mirus would be your introducing broker, Dorman or RCG, as an fcm, would maintain your account (and hold your money). Ask mirus for a recommendation on which fcm to use.

    Just to finish this thread off, based on various research on message boards and such, planning to go with Mirus.
