Can you please let me know which all brokers do you use. I need some help from people here regarding this. Also I have sent a dm to you. Please check it outI understand your dilemma all too well. Trust is hard to find when it comes to putting your money into a broker. Irregardless of amount. I used to think that my money was safer in a regulated broker,its what your told. I was also told bitcoin would go to zero. My benefits in life have come from thinking and researching things for myself. And making my own descisions. As far as brokers go, reputation is what i go for. and time proven Trust from multiple sources. I use one or 2 regulated brokers occasionally but I mainly use an offshore broker, 3 in particular Iv had no issue with. I transact with them via btc and withdrawals have never been a problem. iv allways taken out alot more than iv put in,(not being cocky but getting my point across unregulated or offshore doesnt mean scam in the slightest and there is no problem with getting payed). All in all theres too much tarnishing with the same brush as far as brokers go, We hear one bad thing about an offshore broker and are quick to judge the rest. The same can almost be said for regulated brokers with some of the articles iv read and some of the the blatant broker manipulation iv witnesses, experienced/been a victim of. I have noticed though regulation allows a broker to flaunt things a little more as they'll stay within their terms usually. Time and experience has taught me to just do a little research first, Actually ask a few questions. Support can only answer so much so id ask to speak to management, or a representative. Have a conversation. You'll soon realise if their legit or not. Id most definitely advise this if I was to be shifting 6-7figures into anywhere. Even a bank . I couldn't tell you how to diversify your funds as it would be down to you, but I'd deffinately reccomend you maybe see what different brokers offer, particularly to higher profile customers. I believe ALL to be market makers of sorts to some extent, their a business at the end of the day, and have to provide an income. Usually they will do this on the spread but not all. Id suggest using a few and just comparing them to one another... the subtle differences can tell you alot about their general practices day to day.
