Dubai Gold Exchange opens vital trading link with the Shanghai Gold Exchange

By Duncan Richardson, News Editor

31 Oct 2016

On Saturday, the Dubai Gold Exchange announced they had successfully gained a trading licence from the Shanghai Gold Exchange to list futures on the Chinese exchange.

This is the first time a gold future denominated in the Chinese Renminbi has been offered outside mainland China. More importantly the Dubai exchange will use the Shanghai benchmark as its pricing mechanism and not the U.S. centric COMEX paper based contract. The SGE is the world’s largest physical gold exchange and has facilitated the sale and purchase of 7.838 metric tons.

The new contract will allow institutional clients to access the Chinese gold market which is the largest and most liquid in the world. This new contract will allow participants to gain access to physical bullion where the pricing mechanism is fair, transparent and based on physical bullion alone.
