Gold price prediction really works?

Gold Price

Yellow shining metal gold is considered as safe haven for many. Many people invest in gold just to earn good returns. We keep on hearing about gold price prediction by many experts on TV, newspaper and internet. Million dollar question that is bugging up in our mind is this prediction really works or in other words can someone manipulate gold price? Let’s check out various facts about this prediction and gold price behavior.

You might have heard the news that Gold drops below $1,500/oz, lowest since July 2011. The price of spot gold has fallen nearly 6 percent so far in 2013, after a 12-year rally, as investors searched for better investment returns elsewhere including equities. Gold has somehow lost 18% from record peak. Currently gold is quoting price 27500 Rs/-. Gold was available at same price nearly one year back.

The scale of downfall is absolutely breathtaking and unlikely by many. Most of people had thought that gold will rally as stock market is going down. Gold price has rally little bit and ultimately fallen back.

Many prediction were made that gold price will cross 35000 Rs/- but unfortunately that prediction were prediction only and has not turn in to reality. This prediction influence us as human being, as gold yellow shining metal is containing value that is hard-wired into the human mind as the essence of wealth in cultures from all parts of the world.  It is not unique to the East or the West, or points in between.  Unless there is some kind of global brainwashing to wipe it out of human culture, then it will ever remain thus.  It is seen very much as being the ultimate store of value in people’s minds

Many have belief that gold price never fall but it is not correct, with current behavior gold price one can say that gold is no more holding safe haven tag, as it is proved to be unsafe. Because of this disappointment, most people are reducing their holdings of gold and which will lead to further drop in gold price.

Gold Safe haven

Although gold price prediction does not work or gold price cannot be manipulated many Bank and gold analyst once again revise perdition and change the target.

I feel that they revise target based on trend. I strongly recommend that one should not take this prediction seriously once in a while you can see gold prediction but investing in gold based on this prediction can be risky affair.

    Good post. I think many are expecting gold prices in India to drop lower than they actually will.
    Gold prices seem to rise and fall and then rise to higher levels. This next year should be a strong year for the price of gold. http://www.goldpricesdirect.com

    Nice post. I feel, rather than speculate, time the market and try and make quick gains on gold, it is very effective as a long term investment product which diversifies your portfolio, provides stable returns in the long run, and acts as a hedge because of its negative co-relation with asset classes like equity and debt.

  3. Nice Article! What is your outlook on gold? Should invest?
