In the Q4 2019, pending regulatory reviews, CME Group will launch two new financially-settled gold futures contracts denominated in U.S. dollars and Chinese renminbi: Shanghai Gold (USD) futures and Shanghai Gold (CNH) futures.
These contracts will connect the global liquidity of COMEX Gold futures to the world's largest physical gold market in China through SGE.
Globalization of Physically Settled Aluminum (ALI)
We have modified ALI to duty unpaid with global delivery points. Advantages of the changes include: the addition of outdoor storage, transparent price discovery process and fees, margin efficiencies with other CME Group products, futures margining and monthly futures structure.
The contract is complementary to Aluminum premium contract suites (~600 ADV with 50K OI), with regular commercial client engagements.
Global ALI allows for trade opportunities across exchanges and serves as an additional point of liquidity.
