Here are the latest changes from congress and the NFA:

Key date is December 21, 2007. That is right around the corner. Put out the word.

NFA has received notice that the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has approved changes to NFA Financial Requirements Section 11 and the Interpretive Notice entitled "Forex Transactions." The amendments increase the minimum net capital requirement for Forex Dealer Members (FDMs) to $5,000,000. They also eliminate the concentration charge and replace it with restrictions on the types of firms with which an FDM may maintain assets and cover its exposure for purposes of CFTC Regulation 1.17. These changes will become effective on December 21, 2007.

Check if your firm's net capital is over $5,000,000 for starters. Better still, check if it's over $20,000,000.

You can find out the capitalization of most (US) firms here:

Thanks for the info.
Although, it doesn't change anything. Only very small crooks would be barred from the market. Big crooks would still be in it.
