Dedicated server hardware, editors and site administrators aren't free, and we need them all to make the MarketsWiki site a high quality, accurate and effective place to visit.  Newsletter subscriptions help make it possible to [[fund]] the people and equipment we need.

One of the oft-repeated criticisms of wiki information sites is that they are vulnerable to vandalism and the malicious tainting of information. While it's possible to repair and defend against attacks to our integrity, we'd rather take the approach of requiring user names for all contributors. This will remove 99% of all misinformation-related problems, because we won't have random destructive visits to repair. It will also be highly unlikely that visitors will sabotage the information of competing organizations or viewpoints, because we will be able to easily track exactly who has done what. Paid newsletter subscribers are demonstrating a participation and commitment in the financial industry that makes them a great addition to our community of knowledge.

The Zen-Fire Data and Order Routing Engine is co-located with the exchanges and core Internet carriers at one of the premier data centers in Chicago. This provides the network capacity to provide the maximum bandwidth, speed and reliability needed by all types of traders and institutions. The engine was built to support as much data as the exchanges can distribute and route orders in less than 1 millisecond. Over 18 major Internet carriers are used to ensure network availability when individual Internet carriers fail.
 
+
Features now include new compression techniques and technologies used to distribute the data across IP networks specifically geared toward remote connectivity and an institutional grade order-routing engine shaving milliseconds off order entry and modification. Coupled with the NinjaTrader platform that offers advanced order entry types (automated brackets, trailing stops, chart trading, etc) and 24 hour network and IT monitoring, the end result is product now known as Zen-Fire.
'''3. Editing a wiki is FUN AS HECK!!!'''
+
 
+
Editing pages in a wiki is fun and, for some people, an addictive pastime. Finally, when you see nagging spelling errors or a formatting problem, you don't have to email requests or post comments in the hope of getting it fixed. Just edit the page and make it better!  If you know something about the CEO of XYZ [[Clearing]] [[Corporation]] that would be good for others to read, you can just add the information. If you know a lot about a kind of trading strategy that isn't covered in the wiki, you can write an article and know that the next time someone searches for that topic, they'll find your information.
+
 
+
Best of all, you add what you know, when you can. There are no minimum editing levels to meet. Not a great writer? No problem! Somebody else in the community will surely see what you've written and clean it up. It's a collaborative process: everybody contributes where they can.
