The Dodd-Frank act passed by congress prohibits the over the counter trading of ALL precious metals. FOREX must cease trading in the US as of 5PM July 15, 2011. All open positions must be closed by then. Not sure if this affects coin dealers as yet but a new regulation preventing coin dealers from selling gold or silver coins could happen at any time. The next step COULD be confiscation like the government did in the 1930's.

Does this mean it will be illegal to sell your gold and silver at say a coin dealer or pawn shop?

If I read correctly, you have to have over one million dollars in order to qualify to trade, this applies to individuals and companies. What are the people that own gold and silver going to do?
This is not right, since the beginning of history we were able to trade metals, now it's illegal?

Does this mean the commercials about buying gold is going to end?


Is this for real?

Edit:

Here is the Dodd-Frank Act and here is another Link discussing this ACT.

It was sponsored by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, as the name implies. That says it all. Recall, Frank had a role in the whole Fannie and Freddie debacle as head of the Finance Committee in 2003.

Is this constitutional??

Does the Fed even posses the power to enforce this?

I highly doubt it..

This does not include the physical markets, ETFs, Funds, stocks, or any other finacial instrument that I leveraged less than 10:1.

Forex leveraged 50:1 or even 100:1 which are derivative's that are written on non existing goods. Perhaps what Mr. Buffet (Warren not Jimmy) is refering to as:


But Mr Buffett argues that such highly complex financial instruments are time bombs and "financial weapons of mass destruction" that could harm not only their buyers and sellers, but the whole economic system.



For those of us owning phsical gold/silver this may be is a good thing. This will cut the overleveraged trading that helps cause violent price swings. I would love to see $50 silver...just not in one month only to drop like a stone. I want stability in my precious metals. The volitility should be in the currency (inflation) or supply/demand of the metal, not a JP morgan short squeeze.

I've been saying this all along, people won't learn.I find this absolutley hillarious, history is repeating it's self.I don't feel sorry for the greedy suckers at all.I have always said when the SHTF that if someone said to me, I'll give you a ton of gold for your loaf of bread,that I would say no thanks I can't eat gold.


Well done OP, this is probaley the greatest story going and nothing in the media should tell you something is coming on the back of this and alarm bells should be ringing .

Well for starters this is not new, as it was signed into law July of 2010.

H.R. 4173 Govtracker

Ive looked throuhg the summary and I am not able to find anything reference a Section 742.

Also, it references an Executive Order. An EO is law only for a government entity that operates under the Exutive Branch of Government. Nothing in an EO is offically a law for a private individual, as an EO is not legislative. A valid law that pertains to the people can only be passed by the legislative, NOT the executive.

There are a few referencesw here that dont exist in the legislation.

Is anyone even sure that this is real? This looks like nothing more than a scare / fear mongering email using a law that does not reference any of the claims bing made.

Or have we moved beyond verification now to absolute believe whatever is posted if its anti government?

The legislation in question starts at section 1000. There is nothing in it that comes close to a 743.

This is very long but it explains especially the end of it the dollar is going to crash and people need to have gold/silver at this point...so if they stop that then no way to keep investments safe. They may end up at some point confiscating precious metals from citizens who knows!

the Frank-Dodd legislation does not do what the op source claims. There is NO section 700 anywhere near the legislation, which starts out at 1000.

An executive order cannot create a law that affects everyday citizens. An EO ONLY applies to government entities that are directly under the executive branch.

before we go down the doom and gloom fearmongering, how about people actually research to find out why this email is going around with false information in it.
