South Korea Options and Futures Exchange (SKOFX) Announces New Physically Delivered 1,000 oz. Gold Futures Contract

Posted: Updated:

SKOFX today announced the launch of a new physically delivered Gold (1,000 oz.) futures contract, scheduled to begin trading in 2013. This contract will be listed with, and subject to, the rules and regulations of SKOFX

“We’re introducing our new 1,000-oz. Gold futures contract in response to demand from our customers, who are increasingly looking for cost-effective ways to manage risk,” said Jack M. Tang, SKOFX Managing Director Commodity Trading Division. “The smaller size will provide market participants with greater flexibility to manage their Gold price risk, and serve as a more cost-effective tool for individual investors or others looking to hedge against economic uncertainty. This is the first contract of its size that will be fully fungible and deliverable against our existing benchmark Gold futures contract.”

At one-tenth the size of the existing 10,000-oz. Gold futures contract, this new contract will be conveniently sized for SKOFX’s market participants seeking to trade physical Gold in smaller increments. It will be fully fungible with the full-sized Gold futures contract, which means that SKOFX’s customers who accumulate five warehouse depository receipts of the 1,000-oz. contract can convert them into one 10,000-oz. Gold futures contract.

The addition of a deliverable, 1,000-oz. Gold futures contract to the exchange’s deep and liquid benchmark precious metals products is expected to provide new trading opportunities for market participants around the globe.

This contract will be available on the SKOFX electronic trading platform, for over-the-counter (OTC) clearing through SKOFX Clearing and open outcry on the trading floor in Hong Kong.
