Atlas Ratings provides a monthly rating of all U.S. registered futures brokers (FCMs). The need to closely monitor FCMs results from the collapse of Refco, MF Global and most recently, Peregrine Financial (PFG Best). Futures traders don’t share the same protections available to equity investors. Instead, futures traders must closely evaluate the stability and financial health of their brokerage company.
Atlas Ratings provides this in-depth look into the stability and business practices of every FCM registered under the CFTC. In addition to tracking various internal components to these companies, we combine the criteria and rank each FCM’s health in relation to its peers. In an industry which only offers segregated accounts, without federal insurance, traders must keep abreast of any material changes within their FCM.
We are here to help.
