The new Gold (Enhanced Delivery) futures contract – ticker symbol 4GC – is a physically-delivered contract that will offer expanded choices for physical delivery in COMEX-approved warehouses.

4GC futures will enable delivery of 400-ounce, 100-ounce, and Kilo bar sizes to offer participants maximum flexibility for managing delivery in the current market conditions.

The contract will be listed on COMEX for April 2020 initial expiration, traded in US dollars per troy ounce, and sized at 100 troy ounces, complementing our existing products such as benchmark Gold futures (GC).
