Does IB offer GC (Comex Gold) futures?

    On their site it shows it as available, but there is nothing under margin info. Is anyone trading GC through them or is ZG through CBOT my only option?

    Thanks in advance

    I think it's only pit traded during the New York session, open outcry, and it's electonic after that. It would explain it.

    You cannot trade CL or GC with IB.

    I think they generate those pages from a symbol database.

    We don't provide access to Comex.
    You can however trade the Gold and Silver contracts on the ECBOT.
    Symbols: ZG and ZI for the full-size, and YG and YI for the minis.

    Thanks Steve.
  6. IB does allow you to trade the ECBOT gold contracts. However, they do not have access to pit-traded markets. Global Futures does have access to pit-traded markets, so if you want to trade COMEX gold, you should contact us.
