If you look at instrument name for listed on various futures exchange you often see

Gold Only1214

Gold Full1214

What is "Full" and "Only" mean? The price listed is the same and I cannot find a reference to this convention anywhere?

(Please and Thank you.)

I'm quite sure I heard it in reference to trading sessions. Gold full (trading session) is CME Globex. Gold only (open outcry) is just the floor session.

The prices will differ when the floor session is closed.
