Iím looking for ways to play gold with options, but have not found any. Are there any ways to play the recent rally?

Gold has been hot lately and its volatility can create interesting trading opportunities. Some traders use gold futures to participate in the movement in the metal. Long-term investors sometimes buy and hold gold. The new StreetTracks Gold Trust (GLD) is an exchange traded fund that holds the precious metal.
