OTC precious metal sales to be made illegal?
What does this mean? Is this simply the ending of selling precious metals "on paper"? A first step? Keep in mind that in THIS country they CONFISCATED gold at one point.

It isn't like that article contradicts the Infowars one. It is still hard to understand what impact this will have.

It's not common to trade metals over the FOREX.

Most traders will exchange it via COMEX futures and, if they want physical metal, will take delivery.

The regulation eliminates 28-day futures trading of metals in non-registered futures markets.
This is actually a good thing, and believe me it hurts me to say that for something named "Dodd-Frank".
The COMEX clearing house is regulated to monitor its long/short volume versus the actual physical inventory and warrants it holds. FOREX is not a physical clearinghouse and doesn't do this.
