How much does the troy ounce weigh

Although gold trading is conducted in troy ounces, central banks usually use tons in their reports.

The minimum amount of contract is 100 ounce for Gold and 500 ounce for Silver. Quotes for Gold and Silver are shown in USD and Euro. You can see it from the name of the contracts.

Nowadays prices for Gold and Silver are quoted in USD and Euro. 

The leverage varies from 1:50 to 1:200. Spread is 5 USD per contract both for gold and silver. 

You can open both long (buy) and short (sell) positions. But remember that if you roll over your position to the following day the swap/rollover is charged. Swap varies depending on the asset and trader’s position (long or short)

1 In the period from 23:55 till 00:05 EET (bank rollover) liquidity is reducing, spread and processing time of customer orders may be increased.

2 Maximum volume of a transaction expressed in lot. In case of the request for a quote on volume that exceeds the maximum limit (for example, 50 million XAG/USD lots) the client will be offered the extended spread. Please note that the request for a quote on the volume that exceeds the maximum limit can only be accepted through a telephone call.

3 The figures in columns represent the quantity of points charged to a customer’s open position if it is rolled over to the following day. These values are calculated based on differences between short-term interest rates. Since the value date is the second business day after a transaction is entered into, Monday next week is the value date for transactions entered on Wednesday. Accordingly, from Wednesday to Thursday swaps are charged in triple size.

4 Collateral for a lock position is calculated as follows: For example, we have an open buy position of 1.0 EUR/USD and a sell position of 1.0 EUR/USD; for this lock position (with leverage of 1 to 100) for МТ4 collateral will be 250 EUR + 250 EUR = 500 EUR.
