Gold traders are the most bullish in nine months after investors' bullion holdings expanded to a record on mounting speculation that central banks will do more to bolster economic growth.

Twenty-nine of 35 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg expect prices to rise next week and three were bearish. A further three were neutral, making the proportion of bulls the highest since Nov. 11. Investors bought 51.7 metric tons valued at $2.78 billion through gold-backed exchange-traded products this month, the most since November, overtaking France as the world's fourth-largest hoard when compared with national reserves.
