    Is this market closed for foreigners, like the stock markets? They do some good numbers in Soy Meal and Corn amongst others.
  2. I doubt I would want to open an account to trade in China... Not until they have a real democratic govt (as opposed to the self-entrenched Maoists...)

    I'm very, very interested as well. The volume they're doing in soybean is also catching up to Chicago.

    Well&#65292; the info is not that up-to-date actually, in additional to those mentioned above, there are some other products like Zhengzhou Sugar, Dalian Soybean Oil, Dalian Palm Oil, Shanghai deformed steel bar etc

    btw, the specs of corn and heating oil are both 10 tons/contract

    the min price movement for ag is 1.00 RMB, for metal like AL, RU, ZN are all 5.00RMB, for oils are 2.00 RMB
