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.
About VanEck Gold Miners ETF (GDX)
The GDX is an exchange-traded fund launched in 2006 to mirror the performance (price and yield) of the 50-plus global gold mining companies comprising the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index.
GDX trades all day, much like a stock. It has some $16 billion in assets. About one-third of the fund is invested in four mining companies: Newmont (NEM); Barrick Gold (GOLD); Franco-Nevada (FNV) and Agnico Eagle (AEM).
For the ten-year period ending Sept. 30, GDX's share price has declined about 3% per year on an annualized basis. But in 2020, as of Mid-November, with the price of gold rallying against a weaker dollar, GDX has returned 28%.
It's the industry's first ETF to track gold mining, an industry driven by demand across regions and segments of the market but which also can be subject to macro factors, such as the relative strength of the USD.
However, the worldwide scope and focus on mining of physical gold – to be included, companies must derive at least half of total revenues from gold mining and related activities – make this vehicle attractive on a fundamental basis.
