Commodity Securities » Exchange Traded Gold Funds

Exchange traded gold securities have exploded in popularity and value since 2003. Although bullion backed funds were not a new concept - Central Fund of Canada, a closed end gold-silver fund was a pioneer - the advent of open-ended funds changed the market. Another class of non-securitized gold products, such as GoldMoney, has also grown rapidly in value.

Exchange traded funds allow investors to buy shares that are backed by physical gold, and which can be readily traded on stock exchanges. By removing any obligation or need to take delivery of physical gold, investors enjoy improved and cheaper access to the bullion market.

MineFund tracks the world's major gold funds (closed end fund data is pending) and creates composite information to track the most important near-term demand source for gold.

The most valuable information is shown in the MineFund Exchange Traded Gold Leverage Index (ETGLX). The Leverage Index is a ratio of the indexed shareholder asset value of the combined funds. When the red line is above the blue line, the gold exchange traded funds are exhibiting superior leverage to gold equities - the MineFund Gold Equity Leverage Index - and vice versa.
