Do your research before putting money with Quebec prop companies. Here's a good place to start: http://www.registreentreprises.gouv...re/default.aspx -Click on Find an Enterprise (right) -Type in the name of the prop firm from Quebec You will get: -address of the company. You should Google map the address! You'll see some companies are operated from apartments in the ghetto or shit houses. Not a good indication btw's when you don't have info on the web site about management experience and location. -the date of incorporation -information on bankruptcy, liquidation or dissolution's -related companies -shareholder info. Look to see if there's changes within management. It can maybe show that management is not stable. -info on trading/business names used by the company. If a trading company was previously in an unrelated industry, its probably not a good sign. This search can be made for every province and US state. Also, other things you should do: -do a background search on management, you'll be surprised what you can find on the net -ask for management references -call previous business partners or traders -look up when the web site was registered -question the manager/owner of the firm if you find any discrepancies -if you're putting good money down to trade there are companies that will do this research for you I'll soon be posting some other good ways of doing due diligence or do an example with you guys to see what we can find out.
