List of Gold ETFs

Updated Sep 16, 2019
Gold-based exchange traded funds (ETF) have gained tremendous popularity as a low-cost financial security. It not only allows one to invest in gold for long term investment like a standard stock, but also allows day-trading opportunities in real time with tick-by-tick price changes. Gold has been the preferred precious metal for investment. In fact, it was the first ever currency that was used in ancient times. Gold has been the trusted asset for centuries, and many consider it to be the safest bet against inflation.
A large number of Gold ETFs have been launched in the local U.S. and global markets that allow easy and low-cost investments in gold. Multiple variants of such exchange traded securities exists.
In one form, these Gold ETFs work by holding real gold metal in a safe custody using the capital collected from investors. The price of such ETF units represents the cost of a proportional gold unit, and these prices move with every change in the gold prices.
Another form of gold ETF invests in derivative products like futures and options which are based on gold commodity. These kind of gold ETFs also offer good options to either amplify the returns by a given leverage factors (like 2x or 3x) or they may also offer inverse return option where the price of ETF unit moves opposite to the price of gold. One should look for Bear or Inverse in the names of such kind of Inverse Gold ETFs.
The third kind of gold ETF invests in a select basket of stocks of companies that derive their business and revenues from gold based operations. For instance, companies which are in the business of mining, extracting, or purifying gold metal, or those in the jewel-making business. Such Gold ETFs may also include the passive ones which simply attempt to replicate the performance of a gold-linked stock market index. These come at relatively low cost as they dont actively engage in research or other cost incurring activities.
Investors must study the underlying of the gold ETFs properly before making investment decisions, and select the one which best fits their needs and investment principles. (See also, List of Silver ETFs.)
