The report shows that they raised their 3, 6, and 12 months forecast to $1,350, $1,375, and $1,450/oz respectively.

Previous forecast was $1,225, $1,200, and $1,225/oz for 3, 6, and 12 months.
 
The reason for the revision was more towards stronger emerging market growth, with more upward pressure also seen from stronger EM currencies against a weaker dollar and potential for hedging demand in a choppy market environment.
 
They also argue that higher inflation breakevens due to rising oil prices will help boost gold prices as well.
