Gold in EUR at the highest price for 2 years

Gold Climbs to Two-Year High as UBS Sees Start of New Bull Run. In 2016 we have seen a sharp increase of the flows into the gold equity ETFs, with both the GDX (large cap gold miners) and GDXJ (small cap gold miners). Year-to-date, the GDX has seen total flows increase by 135% to $10.1B while funds in the GDXJ have increased this year by 192% to $2.5B. With this increase in volumes traded, the current fund levels in the two ETFs now sit at or above record high levels not seen since late 2012 after the announcement of QE3. (Bloomberg, 03.07.16)
