iShares Gold Trust Micro (IAUM) ETFs. Regional and fund-specific analysis of gold stocks and flows in USD. ETFs backed by gold and similar products represent an important part of the gold market, and institutional and individual investors use them to implement many of their investment strategies. ETF flows often highlight opinions and desires to hold gold in the short and long term.
The data on this page tracks the gold held in physical form by fixed equity ETFs and other products, such as fixed-equity funds and mutual funds. Most of the funds included in this list are fully backed by physical gold. These are the microETF iShares Gold Trust, the GraniteShares Gold Trust and the ETF open Physical Gold Shares, which have overcome the 7% drop in the Bloomberg gold sub-index and the 19% drop in the S%26P 500 index in November. For investors who expect gold to continue to rebound as Fed rate hikes decrease, three top-performing ETFs offer exposure to the precious metal, as a key gold index rose 9% since early November.
The delivery of physical gold to applicants can take a significant amount of time and the delay in delivery could result in losses if the price of gold decreases. Most (but not all) gold ETFs are linked to the spot price of gold, so returns should align with gold price movements. Gold ETFs are exchange-traded funds that expose investors to gold without having to directly buy, store and resell the precious metal.
