A Gold exchange-traded fund (or GETF) is a special type of exchange-traded fund (ETF) that tracks the price of gold. Gold Mutual Funds are intended to offer investors a means of participating in the gold bullion market without the necessity of taking physical delivery of gold, and to buy and sell that participation through the trading of a security on stock exchanges. According to data, Gold BeES are the best ones to trade in. for more info on Gold ETF check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_exchange-traded_fund
