Exchange-traded funds. Conventional financiers achieve gold exposure by the usage of gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The latter get traded on the stock exchange like other gold mutual funds or company shares. Wise financiers may also think about a leveraged gold ETF, for example, ProShares Ultra Gold. Here the gold holder achieves an exposure, which is two times longer. One more leveraged gold ETF is Goldcorp, offering a two-times short exposure.
