Physical Delivery of COMEX Gold Futures: IBKR has added support for physical delivery of the following precious metals futures on COMEX: Gold (GC), Micro-Gold (MGC), Silver (SI) and Micro-Silver (SI but set Multiplier=1000). Clients who trade these futures can now declare their intent to make or take delivery of the physical product rather than roll or auto-liquidate these positions. When the intent to take delivery is declared, delivery is made in the form of a registered warrant. This warrant allows clients to maintain their exposure to the product without needing to roll the associated future and incur trade costs. Declare you Intent to Receive and Request to Deliver using the Delivery Intent window in the Trade menu.
