PHAU.ISE / PHGP / ETFS Metal Sec Ltd Physical Gold whatever it is called.

 

I bought back on 26/03/09 when I believe gold was under $900. Now gold is up over 10% this ETF is down 8%

 

I'm not one to squeal when I make a bad decision and lose money but I am perplexed how an ETF can be this out of kilter with the underlying commodity price

 

Here's the chart:
