UniCredit Raises 2011 Gold Price Target From $1,400 To $1,500

Government Stimulus

It seems like it was a short month ago that UniCredit’s Jochen Hitzfeld, the most accurate gold forecaster tracked by Bloomberg in the lastthree quarters, raised his 2011 gold forecast from $1,250 to $1,400. Actually it was (link here). That target price lasted all of one month: earlier today the UniCredit analyst again revised his 2011 gold target price, this time to $1,500. As core revision catalysts UniCredit continues to see a “strong increase in investor demand” but the main driver will be continued risk aversion to “massive government stimulus measures” which have fuelled expectations of higher inflation further down the road. In other words, nothing major, just fine tuning. On the other hand, if China finally relents and admits it is indirectly hoarding gold, look for $2,000 to be the next Unicredit 2011 revised target.

I’m going to stick with Jim Sinclair’s call for $1650 next year.

To buy more shares in gold miners or not. I think this makes up my mind now, each pay keep adding shares.

I’ve got a boat load on Jan 11 calls, today is a little bloody, keeping an eye on the horizon its easy to deal with.  I added to my position three days ago when we had that drop and the junior minors…. its just moving to its trendline support.

Todays dollar move is Irelands noise, tomorrow will be somebody else, and sooner or later Uncle Ben will shine the spot light back on us….


    … although now that Goldman has just recommended it, odds are that’s the kiss of death for gold.

For what its worth, check out this chart:


Four of the last five closes have been above the critical 520 level. Chances are the gold shares are about to take off into a significant rally.

Yeah I see it…. Its just hard agreeing with ANYTHING GS publishes to do, know what I mean.


I’m heavy GDX, GDXJ, SLW Leaps… added on the last dip, today is a little bloody, but I’ve got time built in the weather the noise as it were.  You called it a few weeks back on 1300s, I agree that we have a run coming up pretty soon.

$150 is NOT a spike; just more hyperbole.

here is an excerpt of song hongbing’s  “currency wars”  about gold:

April 14, 2004, the family abruptly announced its withdrawal from the London gold pricing system, the
Ground-breaking news immediately shocked investors around the world. David. Rothschild explains: “We
London commodity markets (including gold) trading income in the last 5 years our business has dropped to less than
1% of total revenue, from the perspective of strategic analysis, (gold trading) is not our core business,
So we opt out of this market. ”
British “Financial Times” in April 16 once loud echo this statement, “As Keynes said, the (yellow
Gold) of the ‘barbaric relic’ is into the dust of history. When we see a respected Ross Mitchell

Coincidentally, the silver market in the Big Brother AIG Group on June 1 announced its withdrawal from the silver market pricing,
Voluntarily demoted to ordinary traders.
Two things from the inside reveals a strange.
Could Rothschild family really bearish gold? If so, why not drop in price to the 1999 pension
Lowest point in history out, but the momentum of gold and silver in 2004 rainbow quit it?
Another possibility is that the price of gold and silver will eventually be out of control, once the control scheme of gold and silver prices

If after 10 years, gold and silver prices really be a big problem, one can not blame him Rothschild family.

I’m sure you mean “speculate in dollars”, since gold is real money and the dollar is a burning pile of garbage.

I saw it here recently and then looked it up on-line.

Most people heard of the black eagle fund? Google it. The three olympic sized swimming pool theory goes into the golden sinkhole.

Fact or fiction? Seems to matter not actually.

This one is a full reset.

And in other news, after reviewing the mountains of scrap gold littering the landscape, Jon Nadler of Kitco just revised his 2011 average gold price forecast, from $645 to $560.
