2014-03-07 UBS, RBC and Nomura Boost Their 2014 Gold Price Forecasts

So, will the sun shine again for gold in 2014? Yes — if we are to trust the UBS, RBC and Nomura analysts.

Nomura Securities adapted their gold price prediction for 2014 from $1,138 to $1,335. Also, Nomura revised the 2015 gold price forecast, lifting it to$1,460/oz from US$1,200/oz.

RBC Capital Markets sees gold averaging $1,400 in 2014.

UBS analyst Edel Tuly boosted her gold price forecast for 2014. The three-month outlook was increased to $1,350, and the expected all-year average was lifted from $1,200 to $1,300. Still Tuly maintains the $1,200 target for 2015.

So, that's some signs that the sentiment is shifting towards a more positive mood after a bearish 2013. Nevertheless, keep your eyes open, for sunny weather never lasts forever.

2013-11-08 Collected Gold Price Forecasts 2013-2014

Gold price 2014 - 2015 predictions by bank analysts and independent analysts

By Marek Kuchta, Editor-in-Chief, Gold in Mind, November 15, 2013

In late 2013, the sentiment regarding gold is bearish among most bank forecasters. Most of the forecasts we have collected (table below) see a lower gold price in 2014. The analysts quote the expected strengthening of the U.S. dollar, the improving economy, the rise in the interest rates and tapering (scaling down of the government stimulus program) as the reasons for the decline in the gold price in 2014. In our opinion, all of these events are indeed "expected", but none of them has yet taken place. Further, only a few of these forecasts include the upside factors in their predictions –  unprecedented demand from China (HSBC), gold buying by central banks as a diversification from the U.S. dollar (HSBC), gold mining costs being around $1,300/oz and serving as the floor for the gold price (Deutsche Bank).

The table below gives you the overview of the individual forecasts, you can follow the link to read the accompanying analyses. You can find our conclusion below the table.

Issuer  Date  2013   2014avg 2014eoy 2015 Link
Morgan Stanley 10/07/2013 $1,313; 1,200-1,350       L
Goldman Sachs 09/13/2013 $1,320 below $1000 in the near term; $1,144 $1,050 $1,200 L 
HSBC 09/13/2013 $1,446 $1,435     L
Bank of America/Merrill Lynch 09/27/2013 $1,419   $1,294 $1,356 L
Fitch 10/02/2013 $1,200   $1,200 $1,200 L 
Citi 09/23/2013   $1,250     L
Deutsche Bank 04/11/2013 average $1,637 $1,810     L
BNP Paribas 06/24/2013 average $1,405 $1,155     L
Société Générale 06/13/2013 $1,200   $1,150   L
Bloomberg LMBA survey  10/01/2013   $1,405      L 
LMBA forecast 2013   average $1,753       L
Jim Rogers  11/01/2013         L
Thomson Reuters GFMS Gold Survey 2013 09/12/2013  average $1,446  $1,350    $1,300   L

If anything is going to push the gold price downwards in 2014, it is going to be speculative trades by major commercial banks and funds, who are also among the major producers of these forecasts. In my opinion, most of these forecasts are short-sighted and do not take into consideration the major trends that will influence the gold price after 2014. Hence, I advise you to take the predictions with a grain of salt.

2013-07-26 Goldman Sachs Gold Price Forecast for 2013 and 2014

Goldman Sachs predicts an average gold price of $1,413 for the year 2013. This doesn't necessarily mean that gold will get back to this level (from the current gold price of $1,329 as of July 26, 2013), because the first half of the year, during which gold was for the better part trading above $1,500, is already included in the average.

Goldman expects the U.S. recovery to pick up and gold to plunge the next year, predicting gold to average only $1,165 in 2014.

2012-10-22 HSBC Gold Price Forecast 2013, 2014

HSBC's analysts James Steel and Howard Wen just released their gold price predictions for 2013 and 2014:

Gold's price range in 2013: $1,550 to $2,000
Average gold price 2013: $1,850
Average gold price 2014: $1,775

Key factors:

  • "Fed's open-ended commitment to easing until U.S. labor markets improve will support gold well into 2013."
  • India's gold demand disappointing, but China's gold demand has been rising this year
  • Likelihood that the USD will weaken, as forecast by HSBC foreign exchange research
  • Persistently high commodity prices, should provide a further prop for gold
  • Solid central bank gold demand - "Central banks continue to be active buyers of gold"

2012-04-13 Jim Rogers' Gold Price Forecast: Not So Optimistic or Buy at $1,600?

In recent weeks there have been some seemingly contradictory news regarding Jim Rogers' positions on gold. In reality, Jim Rogers just re-confirmed that he has been invested in gold and that he will use potential price drops as an opportunity to buy more. He does expect strong price swings in the short run, but in the long run (over the next decade), he expects gold to go much higher.

Here are two examples of these seemingly opposing recent news:

If you read (Bloomberg)Businessweek, Jim Rogers says he’s ‘Not So Optimistic’ about gold and silver. However, the article later explains that Rogers expects the price to decline and when that happens he will buy more.

But, if you read CNBC just two weeks earlier, you would read (or watch — the article includes the original video interview) a much more positive and precise formulation: “At $1,600, gold would be a buy”, he said, adding that he would increase his position even more at $1,500 per ounce. “If it got down to $1,200 or $1,300 I hope I’m smart enough to buy a lot more,”, noting that it was no prediction.

In the long run, gold and silver are going to go much higher, according to Rogers: “Gold is going to go much higher — and silver — over the next decade,” he said.

So, after all, Jim Rogers has not been contradicting himself at all — he is staying invested in gold and expects it to go up.

If you are really interested in his "Big Picture", more extensive coverage of his views is easily found — for instance this March 2012 feature by the Gulf News: The world, according to investor Jim Rogers.

The leading precious metals consultancy Thomson Reuters GFMS expects gold to rebound to $2,000 in late 2012 or early 2013 because of negative interest rates and the possibility of new rounds of quantitative easing. In the short term, however, gold could dip below $1,600, which presents a buying opportunity, according to GFMS's Philipp Klapwijk.

2012-03-18 LBMA 2012 Gold Price Forecast Revisited After 6 Months

It is now 3 months into 2012 and over 6 months since the publication of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) 2012 Forecast. Therein LBMA provided 2012 gold price forecasts (as well as forecasts for silver, platinum and palladium) by 26 precious metals analysts. Let's have a look at how these forecats are standing so far and what the best of last year's forecasters is saying now. First the Jan-Feb 2012 real numbers and the cummulated 2012 prediction:


Gold Price Low High  Average
Jan 2012 $1,590 $1,744 $1,656
Feb 2012 $1,711 $1,788 $1,743
Cummulated LBMA Forecast 2012 $2,055 $1,443 $1,766

And here are the forecasts from the LBMA 2012 Forecast which was issued in September 2011. Edel Tully, last year's best forecaster, is marked with an * arterisk. Please note, that she has now (March 19, 2012) revised her forecast (more information below).

Bhargava Vaidya $1,900 $1,440 $1,600
Michael Widmer $2,000 $1,500 $1,850
Wolfgang Wrzesniok-Rossbach $2,010 $1,425 $1,750
Averages $2,055 $1,443 $1,766

*) UBS's Edel Tully was the most accurate forecaster of the LBMA 2011 Forecast. Here is her prediction for 2012: "We forecast an average 2012 price of $2,050. Gold's compelling case next year can be built on: persistent sovereign stress, a recession in Europe and further interest rate declines, benign growth across developed markets, a relatively sedate outlook for competing asset classes, still-low interest rates in the US, along with central banks maintaining their 2011 gold-buying spree. Yet it is the potential direction of European policy - if QE materialises - that will determine just how explosive the price moves could be. While gold risks falling towards $1,400, we also think a time will come when a gold rush could propel the metal significantly above $2,000. Perhaps the biggest thing in gold's favour as it starts 2012 is not its cheap price relative to the past 12 months, or decent physical demand of late, but rather that spec longs sit at their lowest level since April 2009. With the gold space far from crowded, when the tide turns, it would take a relatively small showing of support to cause the price to move quickly."

March 19, 2012 update: Edel Tully of UBS has lowered her one month forecast from $1,775 to $1,550. She has also lowered her three-month prediction to from $1,950 to $1,600, citing "expectations of a sustainable recovery in the global economy, particularly in the U.S."

As we can see, the majority of the polled anaylsts expects gold to surpass the $2,000 mark at some point in 2012. Should gold eventually climb to the "cummulatively expected" high of $2,055, it would mean an appreciation of 24%  based on current gold prices (March 21, 2012 London AM $1,656/ounce). Should Edel Tully's target of $2,500 become reality, the appreciation would amount to 51%. However, it is now unlear whether or how the UBS revision has influenced the overall 2012 expectations.

2012-02-22 Morningstar gold price forecast $1,200 long-term

Morningstar, a financial data provider specializing primarily in mutual funds research, has recently published a number of gold price forecasts. In the newest release, Morningstar maintains its bearish long-term outlook for gold. In the long run, the gold price should return to around $1,200 per ounce because according to Morningstar, "central bank buying cannot maintain its current pace over the long haul".

However, there are some scenarios contemplating accelerated central bank purchases "that could be very bullish for gold prices in the near to intermediate term."

2011-06-14 Standard Chartered $5,000 gold price forecast

An analysis by the Standard Chartered bank suggests that the gold price will triple due to shortages in gold production. The bank's research team looked at the production levels of 345 gold mines and came to the conclusion that the gold production will be only 3.6% annualy over the next five years. The demand for gold, however, has been growing at a much faster pace, driven by purchases of gold by Asian central banks. This forecast is unique for two reasons: first, most gold price predictions are based on inflationary and crisis scenarios, while this one looks at the supply-demand equation. Second, banks usually tend to be rather conservative in their gold price predictions. An interesting read, indeed.

2011-06-10 Superfund gold price forecast: up 50% to 100% by 2014

Superfund's Aaron Smith expects gold to increase 50% to 100% by 2014, as measured in major currencies. He also thinks that an ounce of silver will trade for around $100 within the same timeframe.

Reuter's analyst Wang Tao predicts silver to be worth $55 within the next few years.

Recent developments, such as the legalization of gold and silver as official currency in Utah or the purchase of $1bn worth of gold by the University of Texas and similar big institutions may accelerate this development.

2011-04-22 Morningstar gold price forecast $1,200 in 2014 and $1,236 in 2015

Morningstar, a leading U.S. provider of investment research, has lowered its gold price prediction to $1,200 in 2014 and $1,236 in 2015.

Key points:

  • The now booming Gold ETFs may not continue to attract such tremendous amounts of inflows over the long run
  • Investment demand for gold from China and India should continue as Indian and Chinese middle classes grow
  • Central banks (China, India, Russia) are buying gold en masse now. This trend cannot be extrapolated in the long run
