    • EXCLUSIVE
      3 Exchange
      Risks of
      Gold Trading

    • Exchange risks refer to the exchanges where gold and futures are traded, and not to currency risks
      The two major gold futures exchanges are the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and the Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM)

    • Trading at these and all other exchanges is subject to their rules and regulations
      The exchanges can on purpose or accidentally foster market outcomes by changing their trading rules.

    • What events can happen at an exchange?

    • 1. Margin Requirement Change
      A margin requirement states how much money needs to be available in the futures account to be able to speculate on future contracts
      The higher the margin requirement, the more money is needed to control the same amount of the underlying asset

    • If the margin in the margin account is below the margin requirement, then the investor either has to increase the margin, or sell securities
      Thus, rising the margin will in average result in more selling and as a consequence in price droppings

    • In December 2009, COMEX raised the margin requirements for gold (and silver) contracts
      It was speculated that this increase would result in a bearish future gold market for three to six months

    • 2. Liquidation only
      Here, the exchange temporarily restricts buying, thus driving the prices down
      COMEX restricted silver buying in 1980, when it reached an all-time high of US$ 50.
      Will the exchange also declare a “liquidation-only” policy on gold, which also trades for a record price?

    • 3. Halt trading:
      This event is the most extreme measure
      Here, an exchange temporarily halts the trading of a particular future contract
