MarketWatch.com published an article earlier today providing the 2014 gold forecasts from six of the largest investment banks in the world. Considering that the track record of most of these investment banks has been poor with respect to the performance of precious metals, it’s important to take their forecasts with a grain of salt. However, it’s always interesting to make a prediction at the beginning of the year and look back 12 months later to see how accurate your forecast was. Because I believe that our readers are just as qualified as the largest investment banks to make gold forecasts, if not more so, we are giving you the opportunity to submit your own 2014 gold forecast and register for a chance to win a FREE 1/10 th ounce American gold eagle!
Below are the rules for entering the contest:
- Like us on Facebook
- Post your year end gold prediction in the comments section at the bottom of this post
- Share this post with a friend and qualify to make two year end predictions
- The most accurate prediction, according to Kitco.com’s closing price on December 31, 2014, will win a free 1/10 oz American gold eagle coin!
- If the winning bidder accurately predicts the 2014 gold closing price to the dollar, we’ll upgrade your coin to a proof!
- Include your year end prediction for silver, which will be used as a tiebreaker
- Participants can be from anywhere in the world, but we’ll only ship the coin to a U.S. address
- All entries must be received by no later than January 31, 2014
While we’re going to refrain from making our forecast until after the deadline, so as to not influence predictions, we believe that 2014 is likely going to be a positive year for precious metals for the reasons outlined in the following article. However, in an attempt to be unbiased, we also recently wrote an article for Corporatelivewire.com in which we outlined three factors that could potentially cause the gold and silver markets to have another lackluster year. While we believe that the scenarios outlined in the article posted on our blog are more likely, it’s always important to consider both sides of the equation.
Up until now, we haven’t held many contests, but look at this as a great opportunity to give back to our local customers, who helped to make 2013 another great year for Atlanta Gold & Coin Buyers. Because we’re new to holding contests, we’re not quite sure what to expect, but if we find that this contest is a hit with our readers and generates some lively discussion, we’ll be sure to offer additional chances to win free giveaways in the future.
