2009 Predictions

Welcome to the Buy High Sell Higher 2009 Predictions page. In December, 2008 members of the Buy High Sell Higher Forum were given the opportunity to put their reputations on the line and post their predictions for 2009.  All predictions were made no later than December 31, 2008, so what you read here are the predictions as posted at that time.

Here is a mathematical summary (the average) of our Forum members’ predictions for 2009:

The Price of Gold Will Be:

Price of Gold
Date Price per Ounce $US
March 31, 2009
$ 1,026
June 30, 2009
$ 984
September 30, 2009
$ 1,085
December 31, 2009
$ 1,337

The DOW will close at:

Date DOW Close
March 31, 2009
June 30, 2009
September 30, 2009
December 31, 2009

The consensus appears to be that gold will be up in the first quarter, fade going into the summer, and then increase as the year goes on. The average reader believes the Dow will be up in the first quarter, drop in the second and third quarter, and partially recovery going into the end of the year.
