    7 Low-Cost Gold ETFs

    Gold investors typically tout several virtues of the yellow metal: It hedges against inflation, they say, it's an uncorrelated asset that doesn't move with the stock market and it can grow in value when national or even global uncertainty is high. Those features help build the bull case, which you can leverage via gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Gold admittedly hasn't given investors much to work with for years. After a decade-long run topped out in 2011 above $1,850 per ounce, prices slammed back to earth and have been stuck in a range between $1,100 and $1,300 since 2013. Still, some people look to gold investing to diversify their portfolios, and aggressive investors can try to squeeze profits out of short-term swing trades. We recommend that if you do try your hand at this commodity, you understand the ins and outs of investing in gold, make it a small portion (5%) of your portfolio and use ETFs, for several reasons, including liquidity, low expenses and ease of use. Here's an introduction to seven low-cost gold ETFs that offer varying types of exposure to the precious commodity. This list includes the most ubiquitous gold ETFs on the market - funds you typically can read about in just about any daily commodity wrap-up - as well as a few that aren't as well-covered by the financial media but might be better investments than their high-asset brethren.

    Contrarian Investors’ Positions after BAML Survey

    A record number of fund managers in the BAML (Bank of America Merrill Lynch) September survey believe that gold (IAU) is undervalued, trading at a 17-year low. The SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) has fallen ~8.5% year-to-date and ~13% from its April peak. It’s usually considered a safe-haven asset in which investors take refuge in the event of uncertainty and risk. However, gold has not been able to draw safe-haven bids so far in 2018 since the strong US dollar (UUP) keeps weighing it down.

    Can Central Banks and Governments Contain the Next Recession?

    It has been a decade since the collapse of Lehman Brothers. While governments loosened their purse strings, central banks also took a dovish approach by lowering interest rates and using other monetary policy tools. Fast forward to 2018, the tools available for central banks and governments look limited.

    Trade War Gets Ugly as President Trump Ups the Ante

    Yesterday, President Trump imposed a 10% tariff on $200 billion worth of goods from China. For now, tariffs don’t yet cover Apple (AAPL) smartwatches and some other consumer products. While the tariffs are a somewhat toned-down version of what Trump previously threatened, they have nevertheless hurt sentiments. Trump also warned China that “we will immediately pursue phase three, which is tariffs on approximately $267 billion of additional imports” if the country retaliated against the tariffs. China has previously retaliated against US tariffs with tit-for-tat measures.

    Why the Bottom for Gold Could Be Close

    The SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) has fallen ~8.4% year-to-date and ~11.5% from its April peak. September is usually a stronger month for gold after the summer doldrums. In this September, however, investors could remain in a wait-and-see mode until the Federal Reserve’s September 25–26 meeting is over.

    Should You Be Worried about the Possible Yield Curve Inversion?

    A yield curve tracks the yields of Treasury securities maturing at different times. When the yield curve (BND) inverts, it means that the yields of shorter-duration securities become larger than those of longer-term securities. The inversion of the yield curve has been a good indicator of upcoming recessions in the past.
