Nov 29 (Reuters) - ANZ cut its precious metal price forecasts for 2014 on Friday, citing softer-than-expected demand and negative market sentiment.
 
"Market indicators point to a mildly bearish near-term outlook. Physical demand is solid, but not bullish enough to spark significant short-covering," ANZ analysts said in a research note.
 
"Market sentiment remains less than encouraging, as shorts have increased positions and prices make new short-term lows."
 
The bank cut its average 2014 gold price forecast to $1,269 per ounce from $1,436.
 
ANZ left its long-term baseline gold price forecast unchanged at $1,450 per ounce.
 
The bank cut its 2014 average prices for silver , platinum and palladium to $20.1, $1,506 and $783, from $25.0, $1,583 and $820, respectively.
