Gold price blows up on currency debasement fears: Weekly rundown

Gold futures hit new record highs of $1,974.90 an ounce this week after breaching the 2011 high of $1,920 an ounce. Analysts remain very bullish on gold, saying that $2,000 an ounce price tag is just around the corner.
Silver also had a stellar week, rising to $26.275 an ounce and hitting seven-year highs. Some price pullbacks are not being ruled out but any major drops are expected to be bought.
Here’s where Kitco’s senior analyst Jim Wyckoff sees gold heading later this year: Sept. 1: $1,915.00 (normal downside correction in an uptrend projected); Nov. 1: $2,085.00; Jan. 1: $2,257.00
