Im asking because recently a big broker shut down after the big CHF movement caused massive loses on its clients and currently the broker's platform is also shut down.

I know some brokers collapsed. Maybe I should have rephrased the heading. What I want is discussion on that event here.

Only other one I know about that went bust (and breaking my own rules on naming brokers here) is the New Zealand one Global Brokers NZ (Excel Markets). But as they're actually confirmed totally busted and liquidated, guess there's no harm in naming them; Unlike the UK broker that is attempting to rise from the ashes......
