Volume is garbage. Why do these things exist? Anyone trade them and prefer them over CME?
check out eCbot mini Gold...pretty good volume and tight spreads...not like large Comex Gold but, the best mini Gold out there...
nyseliffe metals = former ecbot metals
Im not sure what you guys are talking about but YG is the most liquid mini gold contract. It was bought from ECBOT. I trade it along with GC in different accounts due to size of equity in account.
It is definitely tradeable.

thanks masterchanger...what is the spread ratio for mini Gold vs mini Silver?...could not find it...meaning, 2-3 contracts etc.?
But I'm not familar with the spread ratio.
If I think I know what your asking....
3YG=1GC, each tick in YG $3.32 vs $10 in GC
