Goldman Sachs predicts turn in gold bull cycle in 2013
Dec 6, 2012 – Goldman Sachs

Goldman cut its three, six and 12-month forecasts for gold prices – currently near $1,700 an ounce – to $1,825 an ounce, $1,805 an ounce and $1,800 an ounce respectively.

It also introduced a 2014 forecast of $1,750 an ounce, suggesting price growth could tail off. In a 12-month forecast released in May, it predicted a gold price of $1,940 an ounce.

“Medium term… the gold outlook is caught between the opposing forces of more Fed easing and a gradual increase in real rates on better US economic growth,” Goldman Sachs said in a report.

“Our expanded modelling suggests that the improving US growth outlook will outweigh further Fed balance sheet expansion and that the cycle in gold prices will likely turn in 2013.”

The bank added however, that with risks to its growth outlook still elevated, especially given the uncertainty around the fiscal cliff, calling a price peak was “a difficult exercise.”

November 16, 2012 – BNP Paribas / Anne-Laure Tremblay

The global bank lowered its gold price forecast for 2012 by US$10 to $1,675 and its 2013 outlook by US$35 to US$1,865 per ounce, saying the impact of the latest round of quantitative easing by the U.S. Federal Reserve has not been felt so far.

“In 2013, gold could break its previous record high, but the potential for further upside may be limited thereafter,” analyst Anne-Laure Tremblay said in a note. According to the analyst, the timing of the gold price peak will be closely linked to the rate of improvement in the G3 economies.
