(MarketWatch) — Gold prices will likely average $2,025 a troy ounce in 2012 as investors are expected to continue to rush to safe-haven assets amid continuing concerns over the health of the euro-zone economy, Paul Bloxham, HSBC’s chief economist (Australia and New Zealand), said Monday.
However, prices will likely ease over the next five years to $1,500/oz levels as fundamentals take over from global financial concerns, he said on the sidelines of HSBC’s Global Natural Resources Conference.
Spot gold is trading at $1,629.72/oz, down $27.48 from its previous close.
