Gold Price Prediction 2015 After the "Flash Crash"

gold price prediction 2015

Gold price prediction 2015: A gold "flash crash" shook markets July 19, sending the metal down $50 an ounce in a matter of seconds to its lowest level since 2010.

But the tumble didn't stop there. In fact, last week's events were so dramatic they necessitate an updated gold price prediction for 2015.

"Gold's hard-and-fast tumble below $1,100 an ounce last week means some investors may be tuning out the yellow metal or suffering from gold 'burnout,'" Money Morning Technical Trading Specialist D.R. Barton, Jr. told readers July 27. "But ignoring it is a huge mistake. It has been and always will be one of the best stores of value, and it's a crucial hedge against economic upheaval. It's a must-have holding."

Here's exactly what happened to gold last week - and our new gold price forecast to make the yellow metal work for you in coming months...

How to Know When Gold's Bearish Slide Is Over

Gold's hard-and-fast tumble below $1,100 an ounce last week means some investors may be tuning out the yellow metal, or suffering from gold "burnout."

But ignoring it is a huge mistake. It has been and always will be one of the best stores of value, and it's a crucial hedge against economic upheaval. It's a must-have holding.

Last Monday's "bear raid" in Shanghai brought gold down to 13-year lows before settling at five-and-a-half year lows, and it's absolutely vital that we know when this downward pressure will stop so that we don't "call a bottom" too quickly.

You see, we can buy gold all the way down, but these charts will help us see when it will resume its upward march...

gold

Tuesday morning, August Comex gold in New York was down $2.50 at $1,104.40 an ounce.

Why today's gold price is down is linked to several factors, starting with the aftermath of the gold "flash crash" that occurred late Sunday night. When China's market opened for trading, a seller dumped five tonnes ($2.7 billion worth) of gold on the Chinese market. Gold fell 4.2% to a five-year low of $1,085 an ounce in a matter of seconds.

Here are the other factors weighing into why today's gold price is down, two days after the flash crash, including China's big reserves reveal, Indian demand, and more..

Understanding Gold's Massive Impact on Fed Maneuvering

gold

Just about everyone knows Alan Greenspan. As central bankers go, he may just be the most famous ever. Even today, 1 in 6 Americans still think he's the current chair of the Federal Reserve.

As Fed chief from 1987 until 2006, Greenspan oversaw the latter part of the greatest stock bull market in history.

For that, some called him "The Maestro."

From other quarters, the names are far less flattering. Many blame him for inflating massive stock and real estate bubbles, resulting in financial devastation across the economy.

Well, these days Greenspan is acting rather schizophrenic. In fact, you won't believe what he's saying now, unless you understand where he's coming from.

Given the havoc its wreaking on market stability (while ostensibly doing the opposite), it's absolutely critical to look back at Greenspan's handiwork to try to make sense of today's Federal Reserve maneuvering...
