GDXJ
VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF

  • We believe Gold companies are healthier than they’ve been in 10-20 years with low operating costs, healthy balance sheets, and attractive valuations.
  • Extreme monetary policies, negative real interest rates, unsustainable sovereign and corporate debt levels and diminishing dollar headwinds should continue to support higher prices for gold in our view.
  • Historically, mid-tier and junior gold mining companies have historically outperformed in market recoveries and/or supportive gold price environments.
