 (Corrects holdings of ETF Securities ex-US funds for gold, silver, platinum, palladium and total figures in table)
    May 29 (Reuters) - Holdings of the largest gold-backed exchange-traded-fund (ETF), New York's SPDR Gold Trust, rose 0.05 percent on
Thursday from Wednesday, while the largest silver-backed ETF, New York's iShares Silver Trust, rose 1.02 percent 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.
