I’m not ignoring your question. I simply haven’t formulated an answer, yet.
I don’t “sanction” anything on this forum, by the way. I’m an ordinary member here, just like yourself – except that I’ve been here a lot longer than you have.
I started this thread, and I maintain the lists in the first 5 pages (posts). Occasionally, I step in to try to steer the discussion back on topic. But, beyond that, I don’t permit or forbid anything. That’s not my role. This isn’t “my” thread, although I sometimes refer to it that way, elsewhere on the forum, or when I’m chatting with brokers.
If a majority of the active participants on this thread want to add a broker to our List, or designate a Trusted Broker, or remove a broker from our List, or even change entirely the direction that this thread is headed, then my opinion will be just one of many.
As I’ve suggested many times, I think this thread should be a democracy, to the extent that such a thing is possible and workable. One-person-one-vote, so to speak.
Regarding the question at hand — should a separate thread be opened to discuss the business of offshore trading for U.S. persons — my opinion doesn’t count any more (or less) than HyperScalper’s, or anyone else’s. But, so far, I don’t have an opinion. All I have is some fragmentary thoughts, which I will try to organize into a coherent opinion which I can share with our group.
In the meantime, those who do have a definite opinion on this question, should not be shy about voicing it here. That’s how democracy works.
