IB has been a great place to trade from in the recent past. I have a couple accounts. One which is not substantial but do have another account which is significant in this brokerage. It seems that Lloyds of london is an insurance policy for IB if shit hits the fan. Unfortunately, Lloyds of london looks like they are in the shitter themselves..... http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a_eI0BCcraNo If shit hits the fan, Lloyds of London may not be able to cover the losses. I am all ears. Does anyone with substantial money have a safe broker that they have done significant research that they are sure will be safe in the coming storm?
