Over the last 13 years gold has taken us on an amazing ride, and the yellow metal’s rapid acceleration caused many of us to think, “yes, trees can grow to the sky”. This was the going sentiment for most of the 13 years following the turn of the century.
In 2011, however, we saw a slight correction that at the time could have been viewed as a temporary one, which it at first appeared to be. From September 2011 through March 2013 the gold spot price danced within $300 of the all-time high, before falling severely in mid-April of last year. 2013 ended up being gold’s worst year since 1981.

Who has the crystal ball?
As you can tell, there is very little consensus among analysts and investment banks about where the price of go in 2015. Each of the aforementioned forecasts comes from different parts of the globe, and each analyst and economist sees things differently. Will gold’s value increase in 2015, or will it decrease? Maybe gold will remain in the same price range as it is today.
Forecasters with bullish predictions have mentioned the never-ending threat of black swan events that tend to make gold surge, as well as dollar devaluation, as their motivating factors for believing that gold will rise. Gold bears believe that the U.S. economy is strengthening and that inflation is no longer a threat to the dollar. Who is right, and who is wrong?
No reputable gold dealer can answer that question, because no one can accurately predict the future of gold prices. Certified Gold Exchange and its analyst feel confident that the growing U.S. debt, combined with excessive printing of currency and interest rates that have been at less than 1% for far too long, will cause the gold spot price to rise.
