I love to see actual silver price predictions with dates on them. SilverSeek offered that up in an article last week:
“Most analysts, particularly in banks, were bearish from 2001 until very late in the first phase of the bull market,” Goldcore writes. “We believe that they will be surprised again when the intermediate top at $50/oz and $1,911/oz in September 2011, is passed, likely by the end of 2015.”
The white metal is up more than 10% YTD, and, interestingly, silver and gold have now broken above their key 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages. Goldcore’s even more bullish longer-term:
“It is important to remember that silver rose to a recent nominal closing high $48.41/oz on April 28, 2011. This means that silver is nearly 60% below its record nominal high of just over three years ago.
“After more than 3 years of a brutal correction and subsequent consolidation, we believe silver is set to rise above that record nominal high in the coming months. We continue to be bullish on gold, platinum, palladium and particularly silver.
“We believe that silver will likely surpass its non inflation adjusted high near $50 per ounce and its real high or inflation adjusted high of some $140 per ounce in the coming years.”
