    If I wanted to open a position in the backmonths of Gold, what exactly would be a good way of doing that - and what kind of execution could I reasonably expect to achieve?

    I'm thinking of a Long Z13 vs Short Z14, with size of 500 - thus I really would need someone handling it.

    Any and all input is welcome - the bid/ask seems very wide on Globex...

    I'd be very appreciative of any comment anyone could come up with on floor trading of spreads in the backmonths of gold, and ask forgiveness for this bump.
  3. 1) What opinion are you attempting to express by doing that trade? There may be better ways in better markets to implement the trade.
    2) You have to expect to be quoted a "wide" bid-ask spread for "big" size on that trade. :cool:
