The Best Precious Metals ETFs

Precious metals have historically been either inversely or uncorrelated to equities. This means that if the market does crash, you’ll have at least some protection.

You might be wondering right now “why precious metals out of all the possible investment choices?” The main reason is that physical precious metals are uncorrelated (for the most part) with the rest of the stock market.

This means the price of gold and the price of silver won’t be affected by the performance or market price of an index like SPY.

There are SO many ETFs on the market and so little information about each. Which ones should you choose?
