I believe the AMP Clearing ( Futures Broker | AMP Futures Trading) page should be this one ( BASIC Details) instead of the one in OP's message ( BASIC Details).

The OPs links are out of date (2011). They should all be checked, updated and probably a few more added. The intent of the thread is great and wish i had seen it before. I wonder if there is a better way to have this put in front of folks with updated links.

Is there actually any relationship between CFTC and NFA ?
@bigmike: did you find the NFA financial reports yet ?
