There is widespread thought amongst commodity traders that the yellow metal is poised for more positive activity in the coming weeks after closing out a third consecutive week of gains.
Spencer Kelly, MD of Trading at Strategic Global Investments in Chicago believes that the sky is the limit - "It's clear to me that the Fed simply have to announce another stimulus plan and this will drive gold prices higher not to mention lowering the value of the U.S. dollar."
He goes on to say "Wednesday and Thursday of this week will see another meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee and it is highly likely that Ben Bernanke will announce more quantitative easing especially in light of the August jobs report which was lower than expected. This could drive gold prices past $1800 and that means there are still big profits to be made."
