Societe Generale Strategist: Gold Heading To $10,000 An Ounce

“Gold corrected 47 percent from 1974-1976, before rising more than eight times to $887 per ounce in 1980. A steep correction is normal before the parabolic move… Holding gold is a bet against central banks competency and given their track record that is certainly a bet I’d be happy to still take.”

-Albert Edwards, Societe Generale strategist, in a weekly strategy report from April 25, 2013

Albert Edwards, a strategist over at French banking and financial services company Societe Generale, is making the financial headlines today. Ben Eisen wrote in The Tell blog on the MarketWatch website this morning:

This just in: Societe Generale Strategist Albert Edwards sees a massive market crash on the horizon.

The S&P 500 index will tumble to 450. Investors will bid up haven assets like gold, which will climb seven-fold, and the 10-year Treasury note, whose yield will fall below 1%, he writes in his latest note to clients.

Gold will climb seven-fold? Exactly how high does Edwards see the yellow metal going? From the headline of Eisen’s post:

“Gold will climb to $10,000 when the correction comes, says SocGen’s Edwards”

Eisen also noted that Edwards making a gold price call of $10,000 isn’t exactly news. From the piece:

Ok, so maybe it’s a given that SocGen’s biggest permabear is still, well, a bear. He made the same call back in April, and he’s had the S&P target of 450 as far back as 2010.

Jenny Cosgrave reported on the CNBC website back on April 25:

Gold prices will top $10,000 per ounce, the stock market will tank and Treasurys will yield less than 1 percent, Societe Generale’s Albert Edwards forecast in a trademark bearish report on Thursday…

Edwards advised investors to take refuge in gold, and added that gold’s current fall-off was still in sync with his ultra-bullish outlook on the precious metal.

$10,000 gold. Hmm.

So why should anyone take what this investment strategist is repeating seriously?

Well, back in 2011 Reuters did credit Edwards for successfully-predicting the Asian financial crisis of 1997-98 and U.S. housing bust, while there were plenty of his colleagues around who saw neither.
