The gold exchange traded products offer one perspective of an industry that is quite diverse. For example the iShares Gold Trust is beginning to tap into the online market. They understand that these products have to go beyond the trust fund babies.
There are many people that are making money at the moment and it is important that there are opportunities for them to invest it in gold. The gold exchange traded products offer such an opportunity without compromising the basic elements of the investment market. They also give investors the confidence to explore the niche further.
The iShares Gold Trust came to the fore in 2005 and has been working closely with the New York Stock Exchange. They hold over ninety tons of gold as per the estimates taken on the 29th July 2010. The fund is facing a possibility of suspension if the COMEX gold trading protocol is put under restrictions. Gold delivery is also another area that they are struggling with.
