 (Corrects silver and palladium holdings of ETF Securities (ex-US) funds, and total holdings for both metals)
    Feb 28 (Reuters) - Holdings of the largest gold-backed exchange-traded-fund (ETF), New York's SPDR Gold Trust, fell 0.47% on
Wednesday from Tuesday, while the largest silver-backed ETF, New York's iShares Silver Trust, rose 1.28% during the same period.
    Exchange-traded funds, the most widely recognized type of ETP, back each security issued with physical stocks of a given commodity,
creating a product they say is free from counterparty risk.
