Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF GDX

  • Fund description: The VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index (GDMNTR). The Index is intended to track the overall performance of companies involved in the gold mining industry.

    Index description: GDMNTR is a modified market capitalisation-weighted index, and provides exposure to publicly traded companies worldwide involved primarily in gold mining, representing a diversified blend of small-, mid- and large- capitalisation stocks.
