PFGBest One Year Anniversary Linkfest:

Not all anniversaries are pleasant. Today is one of those days in the futures industry, marking the 1 year anniversary since the PFG scandal was exposed to the world.  We have fought tooth and nail on behalf of customers to recover funds, repair the regulatory landscape, and more over the past year (with work still to be done), and thank all those who have stood by us during that time. For all those who like to slow down and look at car crashes on the other side of the highway – here’s a linkfest with the bulk of our coverage of the PFG fraud over the past year.
