I am reading this link for other reasons, but since someon is asking and my company was an mfglobal client, ill chime in. Most 4d/segregated clients got 80 % back. It is fairly certain that we will get the money back eventually, but uncertain as to when. For that reason we sold our claim for 97.5 cents on the dollar.
btw: I am trying ot get a foreign friend trading on TOS. He got set up and now they tell him he can't trade futures. I am furious, but not sure what to do. I didnt like IBs platform. Any other recs?
Use a different front end to trade thru IB instead of using their own platform. There are many better alternatives than to trade on the TWS, like Ninjatrader, Button Trader, Multicharts, eSignal, etc.
