GFMS, arguably the most respected precious metals consulting company, has just released its much anticipated 2011 Gold Survey. While the rather expensive 128 page report is not available for public consumption (yet), the gist is as follows: GFMS sees gold prices averaging $1,455 an ounce this year and sticking to a range of $1,319-1,620 an ounce, executive chairman Philip Klapwijk told delegates at the launch of its Gold Survey 2011. Klapwijk said the market had probably already seen the lows for this year, after prices slipped towards $1,300 an ounce in late January during a broad-based sell-off of commodities.Quoting Klapwijk: "Overall, we would not be surprised, therefore, to see gold break through $1,600 before the end of the year." Neither would Goldman, which needs to buy some more, thus expect a downgrade shortly.
