Foreign Exchange Committee Issues Y2K Guidelines


"In general, the Best Practice recommends a short waiting period after a Y2K event occurs that affects a clearing bank or a central bank. If the Y2K event is not remedied within the specified waiting period, the Best Practice states that some or all affected transactions may be liquidated at then current market prices."

Can anyone PLEASE decipher this bankster gibberish?

I read the PDF doc twice; couldn't figure out what the real world effect this "Best Practice" will have.
