I am planning to invest in a Gold exchange traded funds (ETFs) through an SIP. Is it a good option? If so, which ETF do you suggest?

Gold can be held for some added diversification in a portfolio. Although gold is an appreciating asset in present times, exposure to gold should be limited to 5–10 per cent of the total portfolio value.
All gold ETFs invest minimum 90 per cent of their assets in physical gold and a small portion can be kept in cash and fixed income instruments to meet liquidity needs. You can pick any of the gold ETFs available in the market.
