Gold prices rose every single year from 2000 to 2013 responded O’Byrne.

It had “massively outperformed” due to many risks and on the expectation of major financial crisis and had as such had priced in the financial crisis of 2008 and protected investors during and after the crisis.

Mark said that it was a matter of a classic bull market which frequently see “two steps forward and one step back” and lengthy periods of correction and consolidation.

He pointed out that Goldcore had warned in 2013 that a sharp correction might be due as is normal in all bull markets. He referred to the severe retracement of the gold bull market of the 1970s where gold prices fell over 50% between 1975-76 before rising a further 800% in less than 4 years.

Similar price performance could be seen in the coming years.

Gold had not performed very well in recent years but he believes that the unfolding crisis in the Eurozone and the very uncertain economic picture globally would likely lead to higher gold prices in the coming years.

He explained that the cost of mining one ounce of gold was, on average globally, $1,200 per ounce and that prices therefore could not fall below that level for any extended period of time He acknowledged that lower oil prices may bring costs of production down to some extent but that the cost of protection should stay above $1,000 per ounce.

At the same time the current low prices relative to costs of production had caused some mining companies to fold or postpone production which will lead to tighter supply in the future.
