This is called a Global Gold ETF, but has about 70% exposure to Canadian gold companies, so it is really Canada centric. He thinks of it as a Canadian equity ETF. If you want to diversify, this is probably not the way to go. As an alternative, you could buy a gold bullion ETF.

(A Top Pick Feb 26/16. Up 16.3%.) It has been a good year for gold. It’s sold off a lot in the past 4-5 months, but still a really good thing to have in your portfolio. You should use this judiciously, 3%-5% of your portfolio.

If the Fed hikes rates, this would damage the allure of this ETF. This is a great holding.

There has been an 8% drop in the gold/silver index. Seasonality for gold is supposed to be relatively good. Depending on what happens in the US elections, you might get one of those BREXIT reactions. She would be buying into the weakness, and at least holding it through the elections.

(A Top Pick Feb 23/15. Up 1.22%.) If you own golds, hold them. A pullback at this time would not surprise him, but it seems to be wanting to hold at around $1200. This is a leveraged way to play gold. Predicts gold will get back to the normal range of $1240 and $1400.
