  1. To enhance the volume and liquidity in the exchange's metals complex, the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) today announced it will waive all member and non-member exchange transaction fees for CBOT mini-sized Gold and mini-sized Silver futures for three months beginning March 3, 2003. In conjunction with the CBOT, the Board of Trade Clearing Corporation (BOTCC) also will offer a three-month fee waiver for CBOT mini-sized Gold and Silver futures contracts.

    Also beginning on March 3, the exchange will expand the trading hours of its mini-sized Gold and Silver futures contracts. The market will continue to open at 8:15 p.m. (Chicago Time) and trade continuously into the next day with a new closing time of 4:00 p.m. (Chicago Time). Currently, trading in mini-sized Gold and Silver closes at 1:45 p.m. (Chicago Time).
