NEW YORK, January 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The start of 2016 has been great for safe haven investments such as gold having an overall rise of 8.5 percent snapping its three-year losing streak. Market conditions were changed near the end of the year causing gold prices to drop. Analysts at UBS Wealth Management believe a narrowing divergence between growth in the United States and other nations will weaken the dollar next year, boosting gold. They expect prices to rise as high as $1,350 a troy ounce next year. Golden Dawn Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: GOM.V) (OTC: GDMRF) (, IAMGOLD Corporation (NYSE: IAG), Goldcorp Inc.

Moving into the New Year, gold is anticipated to move much higher, and there's going to be a "surprising gold price increase" that might come within striking distance of its historic highs later in the year, based on monetary policies, according to senior economic advisor at Rosland Capital LLC, Jeffrey Nichols. Demand from China and India will be a driving force to the increase of gold prices. "Both countries have significant cultural and social affinity to holding gold as form of investment and savings by many people in both countries but for different reasons," he added. "We think that's going to continue."
