Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:

Gold Trust Shares - - SPDR - ETF and other Mining Companies are tracking well. Although Gold Trust Shares - - SPDR - ETF is in a strong Pull-Back it is always an excellent contributor to my Analytics.

My Forecast for Gold is not as bright as you may be lead to think.

My Opinion is to HOLD-CASH in anticipation of a Bottom which at this stage cannot be Forecast.

If you own or are considering owning Mining Companies - or - Gold / ETFs, the securities are currently not a pretty picture. Prudent investing just does not support ownership at this time. Gold Trust Shares - - SPDR - ETF is currently very weak Technically and I have reservations about my very weak Fundamental Valuations. I placed it on a Strong Bearish Forecast - "Warning." That was way back in late 2011.

My Analytics (weighting) for my Fundamental Valuations play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (GLD) are not as positive at perhaps you are being told by other sources. Plainly stated they are Descending.
