Best capitalized brokers which do not rehypothecate?

Which are the best capitalized brokers that do not rehypothecate, and which offer a way to trade that is free of rehypothecation through the entire order execution and delivery process (execution, clearing, etc)?

All brokers/FCMs hypothecates. One needs to keep one's account value above the margin requirements, or one will be liquidated.

I assume you are referring to rehypothecation, meaning that they use your account as collateral for their own trading?

Are you looking to trade futures and/or equities?

Yes, I meant rehypothecation. Thanks

I'm looking to trade both equities and futures. However, if there is an equities only broker which provides a far superior level of capitalization, then I would trade equities w/ them and futures w/ another broker.

I appreciate your responses very much Lornz, Thanks again

How much does it cost to have a seat at the exchange and trade your own without going through a brokerage? (not sure if that is all that is required)

If you buy (or lease) a seat, what you get is priviledges. Reduced transaction cost, etc. But even if you own a seat outright, you still have to have an account to trade for. Which means a brokerage (FCM, clearing firm, pick-your-terminology).
