This is my first time posting on this web site...I wish I knew about it sooner. I am a veteran trader who has been EVERYWHERE on the street from the AMEX to "pseudo" hedge funds to other day trading firms. Bright is by FAR the most reliable firm in terms of the most important thing, holding onto and being able to withdraw your capital. Some of these other "firms" who are schlockhouses have ridiculous withdrawal periods and you will NEVER see your money. At bright it will be in your checking account the next day, as it should be. It seems that most of you guys/gals are in the NYC area. It is a great office, I left it for a while and it was a big mistake, but now i am back. They have a great manager there and some traders with new ideas. I know it sounds like I have some other financial interest in the firm but i am just a trader who has seen all the scams/bs and wants others to be happy. I have seen some posts where some guys are complaining about the monitors and technology. All firms have tech problems at one time or another, this one has less. Best of luck.
