Analyst Report

This ETF seeks to replicate a benchmark that invests in futures contracts on gold, and is intended to reflect the spot price of gold. Commodity exposure in a portfolio used to be a binary choice, either one invested in them, or they did not. Now, commodities have been proven as powerful inflation hedging tools with the power to generate powerful returns for an individual portfolio. This fund is based on futures-contracts to makes it subject to the risks of contango, backwardation, and other problems that are associated with futures-backed products. Despite setbacks, this product can be a powerful tool if the investor fully understand the complexities of the ETF and how to trade it. DGL gives a unique exposure to gold, where many ETFs offer physical exposure, the futures-based approach DGL takes may be more appealing to investors who understand how to use this complex product.
