I sold my ETF shares on Friday and kept my BlackRock Gold and General units (although I couldn't have sold them as I have to put in the sell order before 8am).
Early trading in Australia isn't casting a warm light on the decision. Not only is ETF Securities' Australian gold ETF (GOLD) up more than 1%.
Newcrest Mining, the largest holding (8%) of BlackRock Gold and General is down nearly 3%.
