GDX FactSet Analytics Insight

GDX is one of the most popular funds in thea trading powerhouse with deep primary, secondary and derivatives markets Global Gold mining segment, a trading powerhouse with deep primary, secondary and derivatives markets. The fund tracks a cap-weighted index that is a broader version of the widely followed HUI Gold index, with big allocations to all the major players in the industry. None of the major names are missing, but since GDX is limited to firms traded in the US, it does miss some of the smaller, internationally traded firms. In addition, it includes firms mining other precious metals, so it’s not entirely pure play gold miners. The fund is fairly priced, though real world holding costs (measured by tracking difference) have sometimes been variable to the costly side. As a global industry benchmark, GDX falls a bit short, but it's still hugely popular.
