CME Group reports Gold Options and Gold Futures volumes annihilated all previous records on Monday.
As we first reported earlier this week, Monday was one of the best-ever days for Retail FX brokers, as Gold’s plunge from the $1500s to the $1300s precipitated general volatility in all financial markets. Well, it seems that data from the CME Group supports our conclusions. As Gold prices plunged to their lowest level in several years, the CME Group set — actually, smashed! — new records for daily volume in the precious metal.
