About Gold

Gold futures are hedging tools for commercial producers and users of gold. They also provide global gold price discovery and opportunities for portfolio diversification. In addition, they:

  • Offer ongoing trading opportunities, since gold prices respond quickly to political and economic events
  • Serve as an alternative to investing in gold bullion, coins, and mining stocks

Things to know about the contracts:

  • Physically delivered
  • Block-trade eligible
  • American-style options
  • Can be traded off-exchange for clearing only through CME ClearPort
