“I think by the end of the year we could very well be testing US$1,600 gold,” said Del Real at the Precious Metals Summit.
Gold’s recent price rise has created optimism among market participants, but not everyone believes the yellow metal’s move will continue unabated.
Speaking at the Precious Metals Summit in Beaver Creek, Colorado, Gerardo Del Real of Resource Stock Digest said he expects gold to fall to lower levels before moving higher again.
“Me being a contrarian, I actually believe that the price of gold went a little too high a little too fast, and I don’t think that this recent pullback is over,” he said. “Not only do I believe that it’ll go through US$1,450 (per ounce), I believe we might even reach US$1,400 and scare some people.”
The good news, said Del Real, is that gold should resume its upward trajectory after declining.
“I believe after that (fall) happens we’re going to have kind of a slingshot effect. And I think by the end of the year we could very well be testing US$1,600 gold. So that’s how volatile I think the next couple of months will be in the gold space.”
That means there could be an upcoming chance for those in the space to add to their portfolios.
“If I’m correct, there’s going to be another opportunity to get into the better names, and maybe (at) cheaper prices,” said Del Real. The key, he said, is for investors to define their risk tolerance and timeline.
