The world's largest hedge fund sees gold rising 30% to $2,000: 'There is so much boiling conflict'
Gold prices, which briefly topped $1,600 last week, could rally to $2,000 an ounce amid heightened political risks, Bridgewater's co-chief investment officer Greg Jensen told the Financial Times Wednesday. The manager from the world's biggest hedge fund cited increased income inequality in the U.S. and rising tensions with China and Iran as uncertainties ahead that will prompt more safe-haven buying.

DoubleLine CEO Jeffrey Gundlach also said last year he was a buyer of gold on expectations that the dollar would weaken.cnbc.com
