The NYSE Arca Gold BUGS (Basket of Unhedged Gold Stocks) Index (also known as the HUI Index) is a modified equal dollar weighted index of companies involved in gold mining. The Gold BUGS Index is listed on the NYSE Amex under the symbol “HUI”. The HUI Index and Philadelphia Gold and Silver Index (PHLX: XAU) are the two most watched gold indices on the market. The Gold BUGS Index was designed to provide significant exposure to near term movements in gold prices by including companies that do not hedge their gold production beyond 1.5 years. The HUI Index was developed with a base value of 200.00 as of March 15, 1996. The AMEX Gold BUGS Index currently consists of 15 of the largest and most widely held public gold production companies. Since bottoming in late 2000, HUI went on to be the top-performing US stock sector of the decade, rising by about 1600%.
