Why Gold Still Has Lower to Go: Pro

Despite gold plunging to three-year lows last week, the precious metal could have farther to fall, Barclays commodities analyst Suki Cooper said Tuesday.

"We're looking for more downside weakness in the near-term," she said.

"This is primarily driven due to the investment side, and our main focus here is really the ETFs and the fact that a growing portion of these ETFs are becoming cash-negative."

Barclays holds $1,200 third-quarter price target for gold and a $1,393 year-end target.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Cooper also said that there was room for gold prices to move higher within that time period as outflows from exchange-traded funds slow down and better support from demand for physical gold from India.
