TABLE-Holdings of SPDR Gold, iShares Silver fall – Yahoo Finance

July 5 (Reuters) – Holdings of the largest gold-backed exchange-traded-fund (ETF), New York’s SPDR Gold Trust, fell 0.1% on Friday from Thursday, while those of the largest silver-backed ETF, New York’s iShares Silver Trust, were slightly down during the same period. Exchange-traded funds, the most widely recognized type of ETP, back each security issued with physical stocks of a given commodity, creating a product they say is free from counterparty risk.
