The Shanghai Gold Exchange has increased its gold trading margins, The Wall Street Journal reports. The deposit requirements for gold will be raised from the current 11% to 12% beginning August 25.
The Chinese gold exchange will also expand daily trading limits for the three gold spot-deferred contracts from 7% to 9%, adds Reuters. The move is aimed at curbing price volatility. Investors are seeking to cash in on the high margins.
