This fund is still significantly under-performing - it has been a steep slide for nearly 2 years - although a high risk area requiring some nerve to hang-in, my losses are a considerable proportion of my investment- with no improvements in sight.

IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO SAY THAT GOLD MINING SHARES ARE UNDERPERFORMING THE GOLD PRICE. WHY IS IT SO, UNLESS THE EARLIER BALANCE SHEETS HAD BEEN PADDED UP FOR SOME REASON.DESPITE THE PRICE BEING 1620 I STILL HAVE LOSSES ON MY PURCHASE MADE IN JANUARY

Gold mining shares generally are under-performing the gold price. Hang in and there should be a catch up in time. Gold also clearly has some way to run, or rather the major currencies are certainly going to lose value.

in spite of the 'gold hype', this fund has certainly let me down. Could it be that statistics are perhaps not quite as correct as the managers would 'swear on the bible' that they are?
