Gotcha, I understand the statement now. I do plan to live abroad and maintain a legitimate US address as we expect spend the winters in the US and will keep an apartment available.
The US government doesn't restrict how USC's living overseas can invest their US savings it is the banks who are making these decisions and like all private businesses they have the right to make the rules as long as they stay within the law.
