Gold’s joint top forecaster, who in February abandoned her bearish outlook to correctly call bullion’s surge, sees more gains in store before prices taper off by year-end.

The metal will climb to $1,425 an ounce by the end of September, 4.4 percent higher than now, before dipping in the following six months amid prospects for higher U.S. interest rates, said Georgette Boele, a currency and commodity analyst at ABN Amro Bank NV. The 43-year old was rated by Bloomberg as the most accurate forecaster, sharing the top spot with Jason Schenker at Prestige Economics LLC.
