Mike McGlone, Bloomberg Intelligence Strategist, made a very bullish prediction on gold, forecasting gold prices to reach $7,000 an ounce by 2025.

$2,400/oz

In Bank of America’s Metals and Mining Outlook for 2024, their metals strategists stated that “the yellow metal ultimately remains a trade on rates, so once the Fed announces a decisive end to the hiking cycle in 2Q, new buyers should come into the market.”

ABN AMRO

$2,000/oz

ABN AMRO, the third-largest Dutch bank, originally forecasted a gold price of $2,200/oz in 2024.

Societe Generale

$2,200/oz

“With the low-hanging fruit in the inflation fight already picked, we think the gold market will have to price in higher forward CPI projections. As a result, we see gold appreciating to $2,200/oz in lumpy moves by end-2024, as the market adjusts its forward inflation expectations with the macro newsflow. Further, in our anticipated scenario of moderating US rates, we see the USD weakening – an additional bullish driver that should buoy gold, together with other USD-denominated assets,” – SocGen Analysts

Gold Price Prediction FAQs

It's uncertain what gold prices will be in 2024 and beyond. However, financial experts and analysts base their forecasts on historical trends and data.

Consider these questions to understand gold price predictions for the upcoming year.

Most experts anticipate a gold price increase in 2024, while few foresee a decline in gold prices. Key factors predicted to drive gold prices up in 2024 include a global recession, inflation, and the pace of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.

Historically, gold prices tend to increase over time. Yet, future events are unpredictable, so it's prudent to base investments on current information. However, some, like economist Nouriel Roubini, have predicted gold prices to reach $3,000 an ounce by 2028.

Given the current suppressed gold prices (as of November 2023), this could be an opportune time to buy gold. If gold prices surge in 2024, as most analysts are predicting, delaying might cost more. However, before rushing to buy gold, it is wise to consider your investing goals and discuss those with an experienced precious metals advisor who can help you determine if gold or other precious metals will suit your investment goals.

Buying gold online is often the quickest option, but better options exist. If you are new to gold investing, it is best to educate yourself first by requesting a free gold investment guide, then schedule a conversation with an experienced precious metals advisor who can help you find the right gold products to meet your individual goals.
