#2: SPDR Gold Trust

Assets Under Management: $74.0 billion

The SPDR Gold Trust (NYSE:GLD) by State Street (NYSE:STT) is the most popular pure play on gold for investors because of its ease of trading, firm relationship to gold prices and ease of use as opposed to storing physical gold in your basement and then trying to find a market for it when you want to sell.
