Yg Jan

Discussion in 'Metal Futures' started by PFWinkler, Nov 26, 2008.

  1. The spread and liquidity in the YG Jan contact is horrible ($1 to $1.3 spreads—with hardly any trades going on right now). When does this change?

    Also, I am new to gold trading (used to trade options and variance swaps)---any advise/books that are a must read?

    Much Thanks

    You should be looking at FEB gold.

    Roll from DEC gold to FEB gold.
     
  3. Thx!

    Huge difference in the spreads and vol.

    Question: Why did the contract roll out 2 months?

    Thanks again
     
  4. Gold trades on the "even" months cycle. "Odd" months are for pansies. :cool:

  6. I am a former (though still alive) derivatives trader based in NYC. I used to intraday trade options on various indexes; but was forced (due to a serious of unwelcomed events) to start trading gold.
