    Investors Are Flocking To This Gold ETF

    An array of gold-backed ETFs are soaring as investors price in lower interest rates around the world while looking for defensive assets, themes that are boosting the fortunes of the iShares Gold Trust (IAU) . Gold was one of the best-performing assets last month, strengthening 8% and touching its highest level since April 2013 after President Donald Trump escalated the trade war and announced additional tariffs on Chinese imports. “Holdings in BlackRock’s iShares Gold Trust, the second-largest bullion-backed ETF, rose to a record on Friday, even as prices of the metal posted a second straight weekly loss,” reports Bloomberg.

    Why Investors Should Look Into Precious Metals ETFs

    As global bond yields plummeted with some hovering in the negative territory, investors have jumped into precious metals and related ETFs to better safeguard their purchasing power in times of uncertainty. For example, gold has acted as a historical safe-haven play during a low rate environment, with volatile equities and a weak dollar.  There are now a number of gold ETFs on the market that investors can choose from, including the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) , iShares Gold Trust (IAU) , GraniteShares Gold Trust (BAR), Aberdeen Standard Physical Swiss Gold Shares ETF (SGOL) and VanEck Merk Gold Trust (NYSE Arca: OUNZ) .

    Look to Gold ETFs to Hedge Foreign Exchange Policy Risks

    As the global central banks try to enact policy changes that would benefit their own currencies, investors may consider gold and related ETFs to better safeguard their wealth. Deutsche Bank AG argued that gold could stand out if U.S. foreign-exchange policy fuels a global currency conflict, Bloomberg reports. Traders fear the possibility of U.S. foreign exchange intervention after President Donald Trump censored China and Europe for playing a "big currency manipulation game." Meanwhile, the U.S. is moving toward weakening its dollar currency, which could be a trigger for other foreign governments to follow suit, sparking a "true currency war" that would involve the yuan and euro, according to Deutsche Bank strategist Alan Ruskin.
