    Try symbol "YG".
     
  5. I was assuming that you werent already with IB. Its a simple matter to go to their web site and look up all the contracts they handle.

    Sorry,I thought I had looked but I missed the gold.Anyone want to comment on the difference between trading YG and ZG.Also I see this is the NY exchange so there are probably more dirty tricks compared with the London exchange,Anyone want to comment?
     
  7. YG = 33 oz , ZG = 100 oz in size

    you can trade gold with london exhange , or do you mean on the "fix " ?

    - the difference between trading YG and ZG.Also I see this is the NY exchange so there are probably more dirty tricks compared with the London exchange,Anyone want to comment?
