Important Account Notice Re: Metals Trading
We wanted 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.

Через 90 дней после вступления в силу закон Додда-Франка запрещает гражданам и компаниям проведение большинства операций на внебиржевом рынке ( в т.ч. Форекс), в том числе и валютных.
Section 742(c) of the Act states as follows:
...A person [which includes companies] shall not offer to, or enter into with, a person that is not an eligible contract participant, any agreement, contract, or transaction in foreign currency except pursuant to a rule or regulation of a Federal regulatory agency allowing the agreement, contract, or transaction under such terms and conditions as the Federal regulatory agency shall prescribe...

Текст закона
Википедия о законе

Как отразится новый закон на финансовых рынках? Что будет с огромным OTC (внебиржевом) рынком деривативов, на котором 5 крупнейших банков США имеют позиции почти на 200 трлн. долларов.

Новый закон касается почти любого крупного хедж-фонда, поскольку те подпадают под него, если имеют 10% инвесторов из США.(C)
