DislikedWhat statement would they release. Sorry you Feel upset that other firms are a bunch of criminals who operate trading departmets and use client funds
But we can assure you as a broker we are a matcher for buyer and seller and do not trade client funds. Also if your worried about your forex or any otherOTC accounts you may have with us rest assured that funds could be lost as SPIC does not cover these account types. Again we apologize for the inconvience of other firms but please regonize your not covered.
Seriously, what do you guys expect them to say? They can't say anything that guarantees that someone in the world won't steal funds. I would say that the best reason to use MB is because they have been around for a long time regulated by much tougher and established agencies than the NFA, such as the SEC and FINRA on the stock side. These guys win too many awards. They get mocked for random tech issues, but let's face it, as an overall broker, what do you get with them?
Top broker ratings for equities by Barron's year in and year out
Award winning execution tech that passes to FX
The first broker to let you split the spread
The first broker to go to commissions and get away from trading against
The list goes on and on. I don't know the management, so I can't exactly vouch for whether they are the type to steal all your money, but they haven't for over a decade and they seem to have their business model in the right place. The industry isn't regulated enough to protect your funds (i.e. SIPC), so they can't promise anything. But maybe after Refco, MF Global, and now PFG, people should start to realize that you need a broker with a track record, a background in being regulated, and someone that drives the industry.
