With gold at a 6-month high, the analyst community gets busy raising its targets. Credit Suisse sees $1,750 within 3 months and $1,850 a year out. UBS' Edel Tully upgrades his short-term target to $1,850, but only if the Fed acts this week. Gold ETPs raised their bullion holdings by almost 2M ounces in the last month to a record 72.37M ounces.

    Well, it's a possible push-pull. Europe, for a change, at this particular moment appears to be a pull on the price of GLD. If the Fed were at all predictable one could argue that QE3 would exert a second pull. But they're not predictable, and I've never been able to figure out whose interests they represent - certainly NOT mine! So, I'm not quite ready to stake a claim on $1,750 GLD.

    Central banks,including the Federal Reserve,currently have a negative influence on gold by increasing the supply of paper currency.Many of these banks are currently increasing their gold holdings and will continue to do so until the printing of paper becomes less imperative or until some new standard of currency exchange is internationally agreed upon.In India and China,gold is seen as a dependable medium of exchange.As their wealth grows,so does their demand for metallic self preservation.Like all markets their are speculators who may or may not have a long term or longer term interest.Their participation in the markets is flexible and prices are not predictable,short term.They(gold and silver) are predictable in the long term until the Indians and Chinese do not want a solid and dependable means of exchange.
