I try to be very conservative with margin.
That said, I do worry about a Black Swan event.
I'm actually more concerned about the outfit doing an MFG/PFG. I know about the SIPC coverage, but how that will work in reality with forex, options etc all being traded in the same account is something I have to wonder about.
Before MFG/PFG the futures industry used to boast about how wonderfully customer segregated funds worked, and nobody ever lost money as a result. Put the guys who blew that trumpet loudest in front of a few hundred customers who have lost out and I'd love to see how they react.
yeah diversifying by broker is good! in a short term trade.. on gld
