What exactly is an introducing broker? Lots of brokers say they are "intoroducing brokers" but when I ask them what an "introducing broker" is, then won't tell me. They say a confusing definition and get all defensive with something like "i own my own business" and I don't work for somebody else. When I look up the the definition of "introducing broker" in the dictionary, it says something totally different than what they told me it iwas. What is the different between an introducing broker and a regular broker?
