Brokers - How Safe is Your Money?


Junior member
If I decide to use a US based broker for my trading, what protection do I have for my funds as a UK resident? Any? An upper level? Dependent upon the brokerage firm?

I notice quite a few traders here use Interactive Brokers, some use Investin. I presume these are widely used because they're good?

Are there any other good ones I should consider?

Obviously I'm interested in the whole package: execution speed, commission, easy-of-use (front-end and back-office support) not just the safety of my funds.
