    I wonder if there is any significance to open interest levels on CBoT's full-sized gold contract... it's much lower as a proportion/multiple of daily volume than Nymex's equivalent. Does this mean CBoT is getting a speculative/day trader market as opposed to Nymex's institutional one? Could this be to do with the electronic versus pit situation, the presence of CBoT's mini-sized gold, or something else?

    Its probably a function of available liquidity.
