Gold futures/

Basically, there is no big difference, that is, the handling charge of gold futures should be lower. Then, gold futures have delivery period, so it is not suitable for medium and long-term financial products. In the case of gold TD, the handling charge is indeed a little expensive.

The handling charge is about five times that of spot gold. And the trading time is not continuous, it is easy to miss the entrance and exit opportunities. Based on my experience in analyzing precious metals, TD can be considered for super long lines. However, in terms of short and medium-term, it is better to be spot.
