CPM Group Sees Gold Averaging Near $1,300/Oz In 2019

CPM Group looks for gold prices to rise next year as the Federal Reserve slows its pace of U.S. interest-rate hikes, yet the consultancy does not expect the yellow metal to run away to the upside either since the economy will remain strong.

CPM Group looks for gold to get up to $1,300 an ounce in the first quarter and average $1,295 to $1,300 for the year, said Rohit Savant, director of research for the consultancy, in an interview with Kitco News.

Demand for gold should be strong in the first quarter due to seasonal factors, tied to buying around celebrations in key gold-consuming nations, he said. Further, he continued, the Fed is likely to signal some kind of slowing in the pace of interest-rate hikes in the U.S.

'That should be positive for the precious metals,' Savant said. 'But with all of that said, I don™t necessarily see precious metals going up very sharply.'

The consultancy's average gold forecast is a little more than 2% higher than for 2018, Savant said.

Gold should benefit in several ways if U.S. economic growth and monetary tightening slows, Savant explained. For starters, an end to rate hikes may stem the rise in the U.S. dollar, which helps gold since the metal moves inversely to the greenback.

'If interest rates are not going to go up as much as expected, that is going to weigh on the dollar,' he said. 'If U.S. growth slows, that will weigh on the dollar. We don't necessarily see the dollar declining very sharply, but these factors are headwinds for the dollar.'

Savant called for 'a little bit of weakness on the dollar, but not a whole lot.' For one thing, he pointed out, a number of other countries are still facing either political uncertainty or softer growth, which will keep their currencies from gaining rapidly on the greenback.

The stock market may be more sideways next year, which may also support gold and silver demand, Savant added.

So what will limit the upside?

'We still have an economy that's doing fine globally,' Savant said. While economic growth may slow, it will still remain healthy overall, he continued.

'That will hold down any safe-haven buying. We do expect it [gold] to go up. We just don't expect investors to go crazy buying gold next year.'

However, he continued, the pace of investor buying may very well pick up in 2020 and 2021.
