You are correct. I was targeting the wrong company. ZeroHedge was only posting the link. It is the Atlas Ratings website that I have the personal problem with because they created their own formula unapproved by the Regulators. There is no formula to determine "Fraud" in advance. It is also possible that the President of the #1 Ranked Clearing Firm on the Atlas Ratings list is hiding out in Bora Bora right now with 50% of the Customer Segregated Funds & who is to know ?? The Regulators have to create new policies & procedures to help prevent this from happening again...
Hi guys, does anybody actually know the following:
1. Any figures around suggesting what the customer funds should be.
2. The total cash available to be paid once positions were liquidated.
For example, I've seen the number of $400 million being mentioned as what should be the customer account balances and then I read there is only $5m left in the actual segregated bank account. Other places I read he has only spent $100m of the $200m. PFG is a very simple liquidation nothing like MF Global so was wondering if I'd missed seeing any released prelim numbers.

It's my understanding that $220 million of the $400 million is missing. I read somewhere that Jeffries Clearing had all of its $175 million accounted for. Wasendorf stated that he believes he has spent around $100 million while the NFA says that $220 million is missing. I'd go with the NFA figures on that one seeing how trustworthy Wasendorf is.

I think, Mike, its high time to take initiative in your own hands and set up an FCM of yours. (futures.io (formerly BMT) Futures - nice name imo ). I hope few people in this fantastic forum will help. The high standards that you apply here will easily translate into sound and trustworthy business ethics. I am sure you will report every dollar of customer money at decent bank and it WILL be true.
