Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
SPDR Gold Shares was hailed as an innovative exchange-traded fund (ETF) when initially introduced in 2004. Each share of GLD represents an ownership stake in a trust which physically holds gold bullion, making a share of GLD a direct investment into gold as a commodity. The GLD trust holds over 25 million ounces of gold bullion, making it one of the top ten holders of the precious metal on earth.
Used as a store of value throughout human history, gold has historically exhibited a low or sometimes negative correlation to other financial asset classes, particularly during periods of economic volatility. The history of gold as a strategic asset used defensively by investors during periods of geopolitical crisis, ranging from war to natural disasters and hyperinflation, has long been documented.
