Gold: higher prices are coming

It remains to be seen, but one entity, the Duet Commodities Fund which was one of last year’s best performers, has already made up its mind. ‘Our central forecast in gold remains constructive as our long term view targets $2,500 in 2012. Our core view is that gold will head higher to the $2,500 range driven by consequential USD weakness once the EU crisis dissipates and the US steps into the limelight.
