Trades can take up to two full business days to settle. By default, once your trade has settled, the proceeds of any sale are deposited in your core account. From there, you may use the funds to purchase other assets or have them sent to you via check or wire.
All trades are settled in US dollars, regardless of the region your gold is stored in. If you prefer to settle in a different currency, you have the option to take delivery of your gold and sell it to a local dealer who can provide that service.
