The E-micro Gold Futures contract was launched on October 4, 2010. The contract is for 10 ounces of gold and intended to appeal to individual investors and Commodity Trading Advisors[1]. CME waived fees for six months, until April 2011.

  • Each E-micro contract yields one Accumulated Certificate of Exchange (ACE), which provides ten percent ownership in a 100-ounce gold bar.
  • Ten ACEs can be converted into an official COMEX licensed gold warrant, representing an actual serial-numbered bar of gold[2].

Gold delivered under this contract shall assay to a minimum of 995 fineness.
