There's a thread or 2 talking about different Futures brokers, but I'd like to focus directly on Alaron Trading. Currently, I have all my accounts (myself, family, friends, etc.) with Alaron. Combined it is a substantial some of money for us. After Refco, I can't help but be considered about so much money at 1 firm. So, what are your thoughts on Alaron? Good or bad, I don't care. Also, how specifically would I perform even more due diligence on Alaron and other futures brokers? I'm not sure what resources, websites, etc. are even available as I liked what I saw at Alaron and have just used them. Also, what do other firms offer for protection that perhaps Alaron does not? Thanks in advance!
