Selling Gold On Goldman’s Call?

View Comments

Before you get too carried away you might want to have a peek  at George Costanza’s book and do the opposite to what the ‘Vampire Squid’ recommends….

The ‘Vampire Squid’ has released its price targets for the yellow metal, forecasting it to rise to $1,825 over the next three months, then slide to $1,805 in six months, and finally to $1,800 toward the end of 2013; Goldman sees gold averaging $1,750 in 2014.

Nomura on the other hand recommends investors buy the yellow stuff.,.

As an asset, gold has shown a pretty strong negative correlation with the value of the U.S. dollar, which in turn goes down as the Federal Reserve prints more Benjamins.  Nomura’s economists believe, along with several of their colleagues, that the Bernanke Fed will replace Operation Twist (which didn’t expand the balance sheet) with more asset purchases (quantitative easing, or QE) early in 2013.

  1. obviously very good idea,,! :)

  2. Who can say these days what the price of gold would be in 2014? no one!!

  3. The “Vampire Squid” doesn´t care about the price of gold. What they want – and what Wall Street always needs is volatility. Ask 4 different Goldman business divisions and they will give you 4 different recommendations. Any recommendation by a Tier1 is “worth”less – in lack of a better word.
