What products are cleared?
The Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange (DGCX) commenced trading in November 2005 as the Middle East’s first commodity derivatives exchange and has become today, the leading derivatives exchange in the region. Dubai enjoys an ideal location between the time zones of Europe and the Far East. As an International derivatives exchange, DGCX offers a range of products from the precious metal, base metal, energy and currency sectors, to participants in the UAE as well as other parts of the world. Our goal is to ensure that DGCX is the ‘market of choice’ in the region, by listening to the needs of both existing and new market participants to provide the contracts that they wish to trade. Our range of futures contracts offers participants of the physical commodities markets, such as producers, manufacturers and end users, with a transparent means of hedging their price risk exposure. The same price risk management has previously been unavailable to producers in the Middle East. In addition, DGCX provides trading opportunities to financial communities and investment houses around the globe who wish to access the growing asset classes of commodity and currency derivatives.
