Central bank demand could push gold prices to $2,500/oz. in three years, Newmont Mining (NEM) CEO Richard O'Brien says, seeing central banks purchasing at least 450 tons of gold next year as they try to diversify reserves and protect against inflation; bank buys on price dips should help create a floor for gold prices at ~$1,600.

    That's correct, $1,600.- is the price per ounce for the time being.
    The next push comes, when the financial system is failing and Europe goes into an even deeper crisis.

    Very interesting but hardly new.

     

    The forecaster is a miner ETF; wonder how he views
    Rgld and SLW, both are streamers for miners. They tend to be more flexible and responsive to price changes in the metals. The bank buying is an argument which appeals. That leaves only confiscation worries; if FDR found it appealing with a more recent politician find it justified?. This is not only the currency wars between governments, but principally between government and consumers.

    Also check out SAND for a gold streamer. The ex-SLW head is running it now.

    Listen, far too many economic "Tells" to ignore a position in Gold/Silver! Personally long in both with the lion's share in that "ugly sister" standing behind Gold. You know the one that has far more use and need attached to it globally......SILVER!
