DGCX to Launch Spot Gold and Agricultural Contracts

DGCX is set to launch a spot gold contract in 2014 that will make Dubai a major price discovery centre for the precious metal. The company said it is working on the spot gold contract's specifications and timing the launch. The company expects to launch it next 2 to 3 months. The reason for the spot gold is to create a contract that is very much regionally and Dubai relevant asset class. Now up to 40% of the gold traded in the world comes through Dubai. The exchange expects to attract multiple users of gold ecosystem to participate in this contract such as mining companies, refiners, fabricators, traders and international banks. Primarily it will be a spot gold price discovery platform and will be fully deliverable. So the price that is seen on DGCX's screen will be the price for spot gold in Dubai for delivery.
