  3. Are you gonna trade the 100-ounce or 33.2-ounce (kilogram) contract?
     
  4. Sir...trade the COMEX Gold large contract at Global Futures...daytrade margin is $1,800!!!!...COMEX gold has all the volume...not CBOT gold...and 1 point of COMEX gold is $100...I'd forget the mini gold, huge spread and no volume...these are my thoughts...do your reserch...COMEX Gold is the highest volume there in Gold!!
