    Wanna see a website that is about as information-arid as they come:

    That's what happens when you get too big for your britches.

    "The largest non-bank futures merchant in the world...blah, blah, blah"

    Now here is one that is just replete with information:

    Thought for the day:

    "The first shall be last, and the last, first."


    (I'm almost embarrassed to be a client of theirs; even if only for a back-up broker).

  2. Refco website looks like it was designed by "consultants" who know jackshit about trading or traders' needs.

    IB's website has ALL items easily accessible.
  3. I just have become a customer of Refco. I feel the broker pretty stable and secured.

    Having said that, I also agree their website is like a labyrinth, I had a similar experience with CitiBank site.

    What a timely post, Saxon! Just this morning I saw a headline about Refco introducing an S&P index managed futures hedge fund. There was a link to for more information. I was interested so I clicked over to and after spending 5 fruitless minutes looking for info I gave it up in frustration.

    REFCO is mainly a clearing house for other brokers to use. I have been with Altavest Futures Brokerage for several years. Refco is our clearing house.

    I know a few people that trade directly with them and are very satisfied. I have been satisfied with them as a clearing house.
