Commodity price risk that is now to the upside and Barclays Capital analysts believe that 2012 is going to be a good one for producers of industrial metals and precious metals, Kevin Norrish, the bank’s managing director of commodities research told the Investing in African Mining Indaba here Monday.

 

The result will be gold trading above $2,000 an ounce, copper trading consistently above $9,000 a tonne by the second half of the year and platinum by the four quarter averaging somewhere around $1,800 an ounce, he said.

 

"The speed with which prices fell in the latter part of 2011 was very reminiscent of the speed at which prices were falling in 2008 and 2009,” he said. “So a lot of people say we’re coming into 2012 with the risks very clearly to the downside. I would disagree with that. Certainly our view is that 2012 is going to be a good year for commodities prices and it’s going to be a particularly good year for base and precious metals, In fact the risks are very much tilted to the upside."

Negative real interest rates and growing global money supply power the Fear Trade for the precious metals

After prices fell 10 percent in December, many investors wondered if the bull market in gold was running out of steam. That was before Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke swooped in with a “red cape” and fired the bulls back up. Since the Fed reassured the world that interest rates will remain at “exceptionally low levels” for another two years, gold has jumped more than three percent.

A Wall Street pro named James Rickards recently released his first book,Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis, and it's creating a buzz. Euro Pacific Precious Metals' CEO Peter Schiff often talks about competitive devaluation of currencies as the main driver behind our gold and silver investments. Recently, Peter sat down with James to get his perspective on what's behind these currency wars, and find out what he recommends investors do to preserve their wealth through this tumultuous time.

-----

Peter Schiff: You portray recent monetary history as a series of currency wars - the first being 1921-1936, the second being 1967-1987, and the third going on right now. This seems accurate to me. In fact, my father got involved in economics because he saw the fallout of what you would call Currency War II, back in the '60s. What differentiates each of these wars, and what is most significant about the current one?

Let me say — in no uncertain terms — that if you think all these markets that are rallying are about to shoot to the moon, I think you need to stand back and be very, very careful.

 

Yes, everything from gold to silver to stocks are rallying — but that does not mean the rallies are the real McCoy — and that they are going to continue to rally. Indeed, ALL of my indicators continue to suggest that big traps are being set, and the next big moves will not be UP, but instead, will be DOWN.

 

Let’s go right to the charts. Here’s my latest gold chart.
