ETF Spotlight: September 2011
Each month, we highlight an ETF flying under the radar of most investors that offers exposure to a unique asset class or investment strategies. This month, we take a closer look at a fairly new equity fund from Global X, the Pure Gold Miners ETF (GGGG). This fund seeks to offer exposure to mining companies that generate the vast majority of their earnings exclusively from gold mining, making it an appealing offering for investors looking to gain more exposure to the yellow metal.
Equity markets around the globe have sank lower following the recent downgrade of U.S. credit quality prompted by the debt drama in Washington D.C. and continuing financial woes stemming from the Euro zone. Stocks have regained some ground since the violent sell-offs in the beginning of the month, however, financial markets remain plagued with high levels of volatility and investor sentiment is largely pessimistic. Economic data at home and abroad has also been less than robust, leading many to believe the recovery is loosing steam and that we are undoubtedly headed for another downturn.
