It's all go on the mergers, acquisitions and transfers front this week! Swissquote Bank announced in a press release earlier today that:

Michael Greenberg posted an article over on ForexMagnates.com earlier today stating that:
MIG Bank – due to their bank status they will be able to accept US clients despite latest CFTC rules. The situation is not very clear for all offshore brokers now but MIG Bank were the first to announce publicly that they will be accepting US clients at least until July 2011.
I've been on the phone to Switzerland most of today trying to get confirmation of this report. I've even sent a few emails to MIG also, but I have yet to receive from them any clarification or confirmation of Michael's report.
