Apparently, there is an Australian trading house, Bit Trade, that will trade currency for Bitcoins or vice versa.

Is there a U.S. equivalent?

There is indeed a US Broker for Bitcoins. Unfortunately, for now, they're still in private beta. The company is called Buttercoin: https://www.buttercoin.com/ You can sign up for their private beta, but there's a pretty long waiting list right now.

  • Whoever downvoted this has a valid point since this isn't helpful yet. At the moment, your best bet as an alternative would be either trading OTC with bitcoin-otc (See bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/1829/…) if you're technically minded, or trading on Localbitcoins.com if you're comfortable doing the trade in person.
