Gold Price Predictions: February 2014

I agree with JS Kim. The Federal Reserve has painted itself in a corner, and there is no way they can taper in any meaningful way without popping all of the asset bubbles they’ve created.Therefore, I think gold is on it’s way back up, though it might not actually go up this month due to some pretend, or temporary tapering. Whether you agree or disagree with the gold price predictions poll, let us know in the comments below after you’ve voted in the poll of course.

Tapering is the new buzzword, which means the the Federal Reserve will reduce the amount of quantitative easing it is currently engaging in. The Federal Reserve’s program of quantitative easing has caused the size of its balance sheet to increase from its long-term average level of about $800 billion to its current balance of $3.5 trillion. The Fed had been purchasing $85 billion in bonds each month since September 2012, and recently reduced, or tapered, its purchases to $75 billion per month. the Fed said it will reduce its bond-buying program to $65 billion in February, down from $75 billion in January.  Well, we’ll see how it turns out soon enough.

Gold Price Prediction Poll Archives

These pages display all gold price prediction polls, past and present. Most of the polls are for gold price predictions, but every now and then I throw in other types of polls, like the poll about which silver coins interest you the most.

Note that the monthly gold price prediction polls end 7 days before the end of the month.  It would be too easy to be right if you could vote on the last day, jerks.
