I just got this emailed to me from a friend who also posted it on a forum. If this is true, this is scary and welcome to Hell... From: FOREX.com <[email protected]> Date: Fri, Jun 17, 2011 at 6:11 PM Subject: Important Account Notice Re: Metals Trading To: [email protected] Important Account Notice Re: Metals Trading We would like to make you aware of some upcoming changes to FOREX.com’s product offering. As a result of the Dodd-Frank Act enacted by US Congress, a new regulation prohibiting US residents from trading over the counter precious metals, including gold and silver, will go into effect on Friday, July 15, 2011. In conjunction with this new regulation, FOREX.com must discontinue metals trading for US residents on Friday, July 15, 2011 at the close of trading at 5pm ET. As a result, all open metals positions must be closed by July 15, 2011 at 5pm ET. We encourage you to wind down your trading activity in these products over the next month in anticipation of the new rule, as any open XAU or XAG positions that remain open prior to July 15, 2011 at approximately 5:00 pm ET will be automatically liquidated. We sincerely regret any inconvenience complying with the new U.S. regulation may cause you. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our customer service team. Sincerely, The Team at FOREX.com If this is true, this is scary. Confiscation is right around the corner, just months away...BURY YOUR THINGS Just checked with sgtreport.com and they have a story on this same thing, the same email. They received it too!!!
