This is an old April fool post from our blog (discontinued):

Some people predicted it long ago, but no one really believed it until today. It was announced by the BIS (Bank for International Settlements), IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the world’s leading private banking institutions that the traditional Forex market is going to be closed very soon. The retail Forex market attracted to much attention from the general public, creating riches for some and making others poor. It was decided that all on-line Forex brokers should be closed during the next 4 weeks, with all currently remaining traders’ funds donated to the various charities throughout the world. The governments of the G20 countries will discuss the creation of a single super-national Forex broker that will offer just a single currency pair for retail trading purposes — OCD/ZRP (Oceanian Dollar/Zeldian Rupee), with the daily trading volume of about 15,000 units. The registration with the new broker will be limited only to all currently existing Forex traders, so that no new traders will be appearing.
