VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF

Latest Market Updates*

  • We believe there is a compelling opportunity in the space today with gold reaching all-time highs and companies healthier than they’ve been at any time in the last 10-20 years.
  • In our view, financial market risks – including extreme monetary policies, negative real rates and unsustainable debt levels – remain persistent and pervasive and may continue to support higher gold prices for the foreseeable future.
  • Notable, too, is the historical performance of mid-tier and junior gold mining companies during similar periods of rising gold prices in the past, where such support levels have helped fuel outperformance of these companies relative to their larger-cap, senior/major mining peers.
