    Key Differences Between Investing In Gold Mutual Funds And Gold ETFs

    An excellent way to achieve portfolio diversification and stability is to invest in gold. That’s because gold has long been the safe haven investment from the travails of the dollar.

    There are several ways to profit from the yellow metal, including investing in gold mutual funds, gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs), junior gold stocks, and gold options and futures.
