Does the US Federal Reserve or any of the large “bullion banks” in the US operate under the rules set by the Bank of International Settlements? In other words, will the Fed or the bullion banks have to comply with these new rules? If not, can the bullion banks continue to use naked shorts to suppress prices of precious metals on the COMEX? 

If the new rules force the UK banks to cover their short — which would drive up the prices of precious metals — would these price rises blow up the COMEX (even if the US banks don’t have to comply with the regulations)?
