With gold rallying on May 27 and worries about European sovereign debt persisting, gold could potentially rise to new highs the first week of June.
“Gold could shoot past the $1,600 mark sometime within the next few weeks,” said Max Rodriguez, senior metals analyst at Lloyds Asset Management.
The debt crisis in Europe remains a significant factor affecting the markets, with Greece at the center of the continent’s most recent problems. Concerns are mounting that due to defaulting, Greece will not receive its next series of payments from the International Monetary Fund and the European Union.
With the euro weakening on Greek debt worries – and a persistently rocky dollar -- gold has room to flourish as a safe-haven investment.
Though silver’s performance has stalled in recent weeks, investors predict that it too will pick up in the near future.
When major global currencies such as the euro and dollar are unstable, investing in precious metals is smart, according to Rodriguez.

“Strongly consider investing in gold. It is an asset that can sail you right through the stormy, debt-ridden global marketplace,”
