CFTC: The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today filed a civil complaint in federal district court in Washington, DC, charging Intrade The Prediction Market Limited (Intrade) and Trade Exchange Network Limited (TEN), Irish companies based in Dublin, Ireland, with offering commodity option contracts to U.S. customers for trading, as well as soliciting, accepting, and confirming the execution of orders from U.S. customers, all in violation of the CFTC’s ban on off-exchange options trading.

Intrade: We are sorry to announce that due to legal and regulatory pressures, Intrade can no longer allow US residents to participate in our real-money prediction markets. Unfortunately this means that all US residents must begin the process of closing down their Intrade accounts. We strongly urge you to begin this process immediately.

Печально. Действительно nanny state такой.
Скоро америкаснкое правительство добьётся того, что от американцев по всему миру будут шарахаться как от зачумленных. Банки уже отказываются открывать счета американцам. Очередь за остальными бизнессами. Американцы будут ездить заграницу с спалаткой и авоськой консервов.
