They also clear through Open E-Cry, KCG (Knight), RCG, and I believe you can also have an fxcm account through them.

you can see all the different types of accounts they have on the left hand side here http://www.globalfutures.com/accounts/fees.asp

They told me they clear RCG, KCG and Cunningham as well when they contacted me to try and advertise on futures.io (formerly BMT). That conversation was made public when Global Futures forwarded it to AMP, and then AMP included it as part of the documents and exhibits in their lawsuit against futures.io (formerly BMT).

I turned them down.

I hope everyone does their due diligence regarding their broker and their clearing partners before funding an account.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I'm sorry I keep editing this, I guess I'm just confused.

I assume they contacted you before the lawsuit to advertise and you turned them down and then they went and forwarded the conversation to amp after they found out about the lawsuit?

The reason I say that is because it doesn't make sense that they'd contact you after the lawsuit unless they were completely unaware considering they clear through amp.

It's in the public court documents:

It is my hope that people are reading the documents and coming to their own conclusions.

So maybe someone can educate me, why would a clearing firm allow this continued association?

Crap, just opened an account with them. Canceling now. I'm just gonna wait for Stage 5 to get Ninja. Thanks for the heads up.

I knew they cleared through AMP but I thought having a person between might provide better customer service, as Global has been very good over the phone. But I don't trust a business that can't keep good books.
