Just contacted AMP Futures asking for their NFA ID Number. Received a pdf which contains the following:

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The OPs links are out of date (2011).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 ?
