The main function of futures market is price discovery and hedging. Physical delivery is not the main purpose of futures trading.

Therefore, in order to strengthen the risk control, the previous period stipulated that natural person customers are not allowed to carry out physical delivery of gold, and also stipulated that the position of natural person customers entering the delivery month should be adjusted to zero.
If the position of a natural person customer is not adjusted to zero in the delivery month, the exchange shall enforce compulsory position closing from the first trading day of the delivery month. The profits arising from forced position closing shall be carried out in accordance with the relevant provisions of the state (i.e. not belong to natural person customers), and the losses arising from forced position closing shall be borne by the responsible person.
