Gold contract trading hours, however, are set to match the trading period in New York. Most contracts begin trading around 10:00, and trading for most contracts closes between 16:00 and 17:00. There are 147 commodity brokerage houses that are members of the exchange, each of which is allowed 5 traders on the floor and an additional 4 runners. These houses are allowed to trade both for their own account and for customers, some for all contracts (65), others for only financial contracts (82) and agricultural contracts (36).

Also available is a complete list of the current day's trading activity, including price, time, quantity buyer/seller, delivery date and total value of each transaction.
