How low can gold go?

Higher US rates, weak Chinese demand and India’s moves to curb gold imports have some analysts forecasting further downside.

Summary: Gold has been hurt by changing expectations for an increase in US interest rates and the falling gold price has snapped a rally in two Australian gold miners. Some analysts expect the gold price to weaken further, as demand from China and India does not look bright. But the supply side looks a little more promising as the volume of mined gold is expected to decrease.

Key take-out: The gold price could regain some of its lustre by the end of 2017 but for now, analysts expect there could be more pain ahead for junior gold miners.
