As more investors are turning away from precious metals, spread ETFs are fast gaining in Canada, Market Watch reports. Spread ETFs allow hedging of silver and gold against each other in a single trade.

Toronto-based Horizons Exchange Traded Funds recently rolled out the first gold/silver spread ETFs in the world.
