Silver Price Forecast Rise to $40/oz in 2011 and $400/oz by 2015

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011 Dec 15, 2010 - 06:14 AM GMT

Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has fallen in dollars but is flat in sterling and euros this morning. Moody's has cut Spain's debt rating on contagion concerns which has seen the euro fall. Germany's opposition to further government financed aid is leading to tensions with the ECB, which is itself now under financial pressure and may need an increase in capital if it is to continue buying sovereign European debt.


Gold is currently trading at $1,388.70/oz, €1,042.18/oz and £886.54/oz.

Gold in USD – 30 Day (Tick)

The risk of contagion is real and many analysts believe the crisis will escalate early in 2011. This will lead to continued safe haven demand for gold and should see gold once again perform well in 2011.

The growing threat of inflation due to significant increase in commodity prices will also support gold. Cotton soared by its daily limit yesterday and copper reached new record nominal highs. Sugar prices have reached a 30 year nominal high and Portugal is experiencing a sugar shortage - the first European country to do so in 30 years.

Food and energy prices are rising internationally and the much heralded "wave of inflation" warned of for months may be gradually coming to pass.

Gold in USD – 1 Year (Daily)

Last night, the Federal Reserve, in a policy statement, said the economic recovery was still too slow to bring down unemployment, and reaffirmed its commitment to buy $600 million in government bonds. This will not do anything to restore faith in the dollar and will likely lead to commodity and precious metals making further gains.

SILVER
Predictions of higher silver prices in 2011 and continuing into 2015 came overnight. Standard Bank Plc said that they see silver at over $40/oz due to new applications and increased industrial demand.

James Turk of Gold Money said that he believed silver would reach over $400/oz in 2015. Turk believes that this price will be reached due to massive investment demand in silver due to a possible crash in the dollar and the emergence of inflation and potentially hyperinflation. Turk also believes that the massive concentrated short positions on the COMEX held by JP Morgan as alleged by GATA and Ted Butler will propel silver prices higher in a huge short squeeze.

Silver is currently trading $28.99/oz, €21.76/oz and £18.51/oz.

PLATINUM GROUP METALS
Platinum is currently trading at $1,689.75, palladium at $744.00/oz and rhodium at $2,225/oz.

(Bloomberg) -- Silver, the leading performer in metals this year, is likely to repeat its success in 2011, reaching $40 an ounce on new applications and industry demand, said the head of commodity trading in Japan at Standard Bank Plc.

(Bloomberg) -- UBS Raises 2011 Copper, Gold Estimates; Prefers Coal, Palladium UBS AG raised its copper estimate for next year to $4.15 a pound from $3.68 a pound and raised the gold forecast to $1,550 an ounce from $1,400 an ounce.

(Bloomberg) -- Cotton Jumps by Daily Limit as USDA Data Raises Supply Concerns
Cotton futures in New York soared by the daily limit for a second day, advancing to a one-month high after a government report estimated U.S. inventories will drop to a 14-year low.

(Bloomberg) -- Copper Rises to Record in London on Outlook for Stronger Growth.
Copper rose to a record for a second day in London before a U.S. report that may signal growth in the world’s biggest economy as the Federal Reserve prepares to discuss interest rates and bond purchases.
