Huge Stocks Bear Market

Gold to Rise to $1,850 On Inflation and Currency Debasement

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012 Mar 23, 2012 - 06:59 AM GMT

By: GoldCore

Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold’s London AM fix this morning was USD 1,651.00, EUR 1,246.04, and GBP 1,040.85 per ounce. Yesterday's AM fix was USD 1,636.00, EUR 1,243.16 and GBP 1,035.97 per ounce.

Silver is trading at $31.65/oz, €23.92/oz and £19.99/oz.Platinum is trading at $1,617.00/oz, palladium at $649./oz and rhodium at $1,425/oz.


Gold fell 0.41% or $6.80 in New York yesterday and closed at $1,642.50/oz. Gold traded sideways in Asia overnight and rose in European trading which has gold now trading at $1,650.89/oz.

Cross Currency Table – (Bloomberg)

Hopes that the US economy is recovering and that the Eurozone debt debacle is over has led to increased risk appetite in recent weeks. This sent gold to a 2 month low yesterday.

Gold has fallen 2.8% so far in March. This has been attributed to Fed Chairman Bernanke denying that QE will take place.

Investors will be watching the fund flows to see if large institutions and hedge funds are increasing or reducing allocations to gold ETF’s which could influence prices.

ETF gold demand has remained strong and “sticky” showing that most buyers are long term and passive in nature and not speculators, traders or paper players who use the COMEX and futures markets to get exposure to gold.

Technicals: Euro Gold Testing Support at 200 DMA - EUR 1,239/oz
Gold’s technicals remain poor and prices are heading for their fourth straight week of losses. This is particularly the case in US dollar terms due to the recent period of dollar strength.

XAU-EUR 1 Year Chart – (Bloomberg)

However gold’s technicals in euro and other fiat currency terms are not as poor. Euro gold support is at the 200 daily moving average (DMA) at EUR 1,239.35/oz. As can be seen in the charts buying euro gold at the 200 DMA has been prudent in recent years. For those wishing to time the market this is another good buying opportunity.

Gold continues to climb the classic bull market ‘wall of worry’ and this has all the hallmarks of yet another period of correction and consolidation prior to further depreciation in the euro and other fiat currencies.

From a contrarian point of view, as long as the words ‘fiat’ and ‘debasement’ remain taboo in the popular press and media, gold’s bull market seems assured.

Gold +15% To $1,850/oz in Q2 On Inflation and Currency Debasement - BARCAP
Barclays Capital see this most recent sell off as an opportunity to buy gold.

With gold prices are at their lowest since January, Barclays Capital are buying the dip as they expect gold to rally around 15% to $1,850/oz by the second quarter due to currency debasement and inflation worries.

XAU-EUR 5 Year – (Bloomberg)

BarCap said it expects precious metals to be one of the commodity price leaders in the second quarter, citing the "resumption of the kind of currency debasement/inflation concerns that have been the big driver of gold and silver prices over the past 12 months".

It recommended that investors take a long position in December 2012 palladium, saying lower Russian exports should push the market into a supply deficit and bring prices "significantly above current levels" by later this year.

BarCap put a second-quarter price of $745 per ounce for palladium futures on the London Metal Exchange, versus the past four weeks' average of $701. Spot palladium on the LME hit a session bottom below $645 on Thursday
