Question 1. Margin Account and Settlement (6 marks)

Suppose that you bought two one-year gold futures contracts when the one-year futures price of gold was US\$1,340.30 per troy ounce. You then closed the position at the end of the sixth trading day. The initial margin requirement is US\$5,940 per contract, and the maintenance margin requirement is US\$5,400 per contract. One contract is for 100 troy ounces of gold. The daily prices on the intervening trading days are shown in the following table.

 Day Settlement Price 0 1340.30 1 1345.50 2 1339.20 3 1330.60 4 1327.70 5 1337.70 6 1340.60

Assume that you deposit the initial margin and do not withdraw the excess on any given day. Whenever a margin call occurs on Day t, you would make a deposit to bring the balance up to meet the initial margin requirement at the start of trading on Day t+1, i.e., the next day.
