Gold mutual funds may soon be a reality in India. Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has cleared the way for introducing gold exchange traded funds (ETF) in the country.

It has approved two models for launching the product – a mutual fund custodian bank integrated model and mutual fund warehouse receipt model. These two models were earlier recommended by a SEBI-appointed committee.

Under the mutual fund custodian bank integrated model, the physical gold will be held by a custodian bank on behalf of the mutual fund. The mutual fund sells or buys units to a wholesale intermediary based on the value of the gold with the custodian bank. These units will then be traded on stock exchanges and retail investors could buy them from the wholesale intermediary.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
