gold prices prediction september 17-21 2012

gold prices prediction september 17-21 2012 : Gold maintained a seven-month high Friday after the Fed-fueled rally on the previous day made it possible for the yellow metal to advance for a fourth straight week.

Gold prices for December delivery rose 60.0 cents to $1,772.70 an ounce on the Comex in New York, its best settlement price since February 28. Gold traded as high as $1,780.20 an ounce. For the week, gold prices gained $32.20 or 1.9%.

"When multiple major central banks are coordinating their effort in printing more money and engaging in stimulus measures, that has to be overtly bullish for gold," Reuters quoted Adam Sarhan, chief executive of Sarhan Capital.

The Fed said Thursday that it would purchase $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities every month until the employment picture improved. The news bolstered inflation expectations, and gold is traditionally purchased as a hedge against inflation.
