At this link, I always check the financial condition of certain FCMs. I also use this information as a first step of a due diligence.
Futures commission merchants (FCMs) must file monthly financial reports with the CFTC’s Division of Clearing and Intermediary Oversight within seventeen (17) business days after the end of the month. Selected financial information from these reports is published below. The most recent month-end information generally is added within twelve (12) business days after FCMs file their reports, but occasionally may be added later.
Some FCMs those don’t meet a certain level of minimum capital requirement should be avoided as a business partner.
