Gold - What Credit Suisse Needs to Turn Bullish

Credit Suisse’s Tom Kendall is on Kitco News to talk about the bank’s forecasts for gold, silver and the global economy. “We’re looking for average $1,150 in Q3 and Q4 next year so we’re still bearish from current levels,” says Kendall. Why are the bank’s calls so bearish? “Because when we look at the factors that drove gold up… we see those factors have greatly diminished already and we expect them to diminish going forward,” he says. “The risk of a systemic collapse in the financial system has greatly diminished.” With regards to the Fed’s monetary policy, Kendall says that although these policies are unorthodox, he does see the economy slowly heading in the direction of normalization of this policy. “A widespread concern amongst investors was that this printing of money would lead to an uncontrolled breakout of inflation,” he says. “We don’t think inflation is a concern, certainly not for the next 12 months at the very least,” he adds. Kendall also says that in order for Credit Suisse to change its views on gold, the global economy would need to go back to “quite a bad place.” Watch now to hear his take on PGMs & silver, and why he thinks the industrial metals may outperform gold.
