I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what the best way to protect a sustantial capital contribution designed to provide leverage at a prop firm or for trading as a retail account. Don Bright has said on many occasions that one should "check the balance sheet". He has also stated how open Bright is in this regard. I applaud this transparency but do realize a balance sheet is only a "snapshot" of one point in time and certainly does not take into account trading risk control factors. I have been surprised as to how many times I have seen references to not getting money returned. The last thing I need as a trader is to worry about getting paid or to worry about someone else blowing me out. Is anyone aware of any non-affiliated companies that would provide insurance against any losses to my contribution that were not incurred because of trading?
