Gold Futures Rollover


Recommended Posts

Could anyone please advise of the nuances of running a rollover for Gold futures.

I have note traded for over 10 years however took out a Gold position 3 weeks ago on an August contract. My understanding is that this expires on the 28th of July (4 days). I have issued rollover instructions in setting and had e-mail conformation.

Despite this I am unsure how this manifests itself.

Does the rollover move to the December contract or just another month (Sept)?

Are the profits realised or do they just continue to run?

Do you effectively 'pay' the spread to IG again?

Is this a better / more efficient way of running a position for longer if you are still bullish on the outcome or should you close and open a new Dec contract?

Many Thanks for your time.

Ed

you will get rolled onto the december contract

profits get realised

yes you pay the spread again

in theory it doesnt make a difference what you do - rollover or close now and reopen a new contract, but personally i prefer to close a position manually so i can see exactly what price i'm getting

    • I think you're getting confused, there is no such virus as ''Sars Covid 19''. I think you are mistaking it with SARS-COV-2 which is an older virus for which there is a mass test available and which shares some RNA with Covid-19 and so it's test is currently being used to find COV-19 until a cheap, fast test specifically for COV-19 is available. I was going to call the thread the 'Wuhan Wet Market And Food Emporium, Bats and Snakes a Speciality, Get Em While They're Hot They're Loverly Flu' but it's a bit too long so I shortened it to WuFlu, DH.  
    • Check your settings? Maybe one has Bid price and the other Ask. That's all I could think of.
    • What is WuFlu? Is this another illness? All your Lancet references relate to Sars Covid19 so I think you might be getting a bit confused.
