I am considering opening an account at FXCM. However, I am a bit reluctant since I heard on the news that they were in financial problems in January. I checked their stock and it really plunged from 17 to now 1.5 USD.

What will happen with my money when they go bankrupt? And how likely is it they will?

Thanks!
