Those involved in the gold market have cause to worry due to exchange traded funds such as SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEARCA:GLD), which have changed the gold market. Since they were launched, these funds have become extremely popular as a way to buy gold.
The question facing investors now though is what happens when the ETFs decide to sell. Starting in the beginning of January, the ETFs have dumped more than a 140 tons of gold on the market. February saw the largest outflow of gold on record from these ETFs, and this is what investors are worried about.
This movement partly reflects a negative view of gold. As investors become more confident about the global economy, they want to switch their money into riskier investments that offer possibility of a higher yield.
