According to Goldman Sachs, the current macroeconomic situation around the world suggests an increase in gold prices up to $1940/oz by late 2012. Asia keeps seeing steady demand for physical gold.
 
Forecast: According to the Department of Commodity Trading of Masterforex-V Academy, after declining within a range for a couple of days, today gold is ready for a rally. It is currently above 1617-1617.5. However, the price still may test 1610. The closest targets are 1627, 1630, then 1640-1641, and maybe even 1668.
 
As for silver, in order to resume its rally, the price needs to consolidate above 29.30 in order to reach 29.50 and 29.75. A break above December’s high will give way to 30. A failed test will initiate a downswing to 28.9-29, and maybe even 28.7.
