Should you invest in Gold, Silver, or other Precious Metals in 2012?

by Michael Deane

There are many was to gain exposure to alternative investments in your portfolio. There are mutual funds, futures, and high yield bonds. However, there are not many vehicles better then exchange traded funds, or ETF's. ETFs, especially commodity ETFs, allow your portfolio to gain from rising inflation and supply and demand imbalances. These vehicles trade like individual stocks, so they be purchased through out the trading day.

Some of the best types of commodity ETFs are precious metal ETFs. This sub-sector of commodities is in high demand due to the excessive money printing the United States and European countries have conducted in recent years.

Currently my favorite commodity etf sector is precious metals.

ETFS Physical Platinum Shares (PPLT). The largest physically backed platinum based commodity ETF on the market, this ETF holds over $600 million in physical platinum bullion.

PowerShares DB Precious Metals Fund (DBP). This reasonably priced ($60 per share) commodities etf holds over $500 billion in assets. Unlike the above funds, DBP holds futures contracts on a variety of precious metals. They are currently holding live positions of both gold and silver.

ETFS Physical Precious Metal Basket Shares (GLTR). This fund holds $250 million in assets and trades at about $100 per share. It provides a high level of diversification as its holding are made up of physical bullion of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium.

iPath Pure Beta Precious Metals (BLNG). Sporting more than just the coolest ticker symbol, this commodities ETF issued by Barclay's is backed up with $4 million is assets and trades in futures contracts.

Make sure that when you are <a href="http://commodityhq.wordpress.com/">investing in commodity related funds</a> that you do your home work, because <a href="http://allcommodityetf.blogspot.com/">energy or gold commodity funds</a> move fast.
