Hi everybody, This is my first post. I'm glad to be here. I'm from Brazil and I just trade stocks here. Now I'm looking for a firm in order to trade forex. I did a lot of reading about trading forex futures and spot forex. There's a lot of pros and cons about any one of them. But, my main concern about which market to trade is the safety of funds. According to NFA, only forex futures funds are segregated so they're safe in case of a bankruptcy. That's not happen when you're trading with a spot forex firm. So, since I'm not in US, what do you think about that? How safe customers funds are in these fx firms, even NFA registered? Most of the firms aren't publicly traded, so you don't have any information about their financial status. Thanks in advance for all replies.
