JP Morgan Warns Gold to Go Parabolic and Rise to $2,500 By Year End
by Tyler Durden
This may be a sign that the current sharp rally may have reached its zenith as neither bank has a great track record regarding short term trading calls on commodity markets. In the short term there is the risk of a correction as gold’s rise is now becoming front page (on front page of FT today) and headline news. The fact that silver has fallen in recent days and remains below $40/oz and the fact that gold mining equities have also not risen may also be a warning signal. Gold has risen from below $1,500/oz to nearly $1,800/oz in 5 weeks (since the start of July) and is up nearly 18% in dollar terms. Therefore, in conventional terms gold is most certainly overbought. However, we are not living in conventional or normal times and the ongoing global market crash and global currency debasement means that there is a chance that gold will go parabolic as it did in the 1970’s.
