Important Account Notice Re: Metals Trading

We wanted to make you aware of some upcoming changes to’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, 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.

They are tightening the pipe, suffocating enterprenours so only corporations and government could make money and monopolize the market with their regulations.
SKEPTIC - One who instinctively or habitually doubts, questions, disagrees with assertions or generally accepted conclusions.
And tries to prove these assertions/claims with scientific facts.

So far we have only received this warning from We are waiting to see which other dealers inform their customers that trading gold and silver over the counter will soon be illegal.

At present this would appear unconfirmed , but zerohedge are accepted as one of the few creditable commentators left .

No you gotta read a little more into it.

That applies ONLY to metals traded on Margin,
and is not a restriction provided the transaction
is closed within 28 days. (delivered)

This is an anti fraud measure designed to protect the consumer
during a volatile trading environment to avoid conflict over price per oz.

Also the Dodd measure does not contain language
to any effect reflective of the wording of that email.
Nor any mention of gold/silver coinage bought and sold
on the consumer level. Or personal sale.

This basically means that if you purchase gold/silver on margin
from companies representing themselves as traders qualified to do such,
they must be a legitimate, licensed trading entity.


Consumer protection only.

Personal transactions do NOT occur under margin..
Therefore not restricted.

Gold up 9.70 oz us. I believe that's the purpose. Keep an eye on the US market till July 15th. Just another form of terrorism.
Low, you sound like you know more about this than me so I might very well be wrong

Low is absolutely right!
All this will do is to sway the market away from the paper market... More towards real physical metals that you actually take delivery on.
Of course, as of now we don't know why this is happening. This looks like part 1 of a HUGE breaking news... An intro.
