Gold ETF - The Best Gold ETFs (List)

images/Gold-ETFs_5458063411_90af59120f_o_780x390px_85pct.jpg

After comparing similar gold ETFs on the four characteristics described on the ETF Finder page, I have included the best gold ETFs in the table below. In the note at the bottom of this page I have revealed in which of these gold ETFs - if any - I am considering to invest myself.

I have obtained most of the data from the issuer's website, which you can verify by clicking on the link in the Details column. However, I have also used Yahoo Finance's ETF Finder and ETF Database's ETF Screener to find and compare interesting data about the best gold ETFs. Yahoo Finance's ETF Finder and ETF Database's ETF Screener can be found by clicking on the links provided.

These resources will not only help you to find the ETFs mentioned in the table below, but you can also find relevant multiplier futures based ETFs. These gold multiplier ETFs aim to realise two to three times the (inverse) daily price difference. Because these ETFs aim to realise two to three times the (inverse) daily price difference, I consider these instruments only suitable for day traders, not for investors.

For the stock based gold ETFs I recommend you to inform yourself about the portfolio holdings, before making the actual investment - just to inform yourself in which individual gold companies you are actually investing.

Note: As explained in the second note on the ETF Finder page I prefer to do my own stock picking myself, in stead of buying a stock based mineral ETF. Although I must conclude that when I want exposure to the price of gold, the best gold ETFs are GDX and GDXJ, I probably find myself more comfortable with investing in some of the individual holdings of these stock based mineral ETFs. When I choose to invest in an ETF as an instrument to invest in gold directly, I buy PHYS as I found that this ETF is really physically backed by gold (see the cautionary note on the ETF Finder page).

Cautionary Note: Always check for yourself if the four characteristics described on the ETF Finder page will still result in the same conclusions as to which gold ETF is the best gold ETF to invest in, as the information in the table could be outdated when you read this page. The last time I updated this data was in November, 2013.
