You sell three December gold futures contracts when the futures price is $410 per ounce. Each contract is on 100 ounces of gold and the initial margin per contract is $2,000. The maintenance margin per contract is $1,500. During the next seven days the futures price rises slowly to $412 per ounce. What is the balance of your margin account at the end of the seven days?
Need to know how the calculations are done step by step.
