Gold Holding Near 6 Year Highs – Looking Positive

Gold in NZ dollars continues to bounce around near recent 6 year highs above $1950. Gold is holding up surprisingly well.

The RSI overbought/oversold indicator has moved back down to neutral territory (50). But the price has not pulled back too far and remains above the 50 day moving average (MA).

The 50 day MA is also well above the 200 day MA having undergone the “bullish cross” in January. This simply means the 50 day MA turned up above the 200 day MA. Generally a bullish signal of rising prices.

So all this looks very positive for the gold price moving higher still. The NZD gold price is one of many currencies now at multi year or even all time highs in gold.

The US dollar price (lower half of the below chart) has yet to achieve a multiyear high. However it is getting close. The overhead resistance line around US$1375 is not far above us now. That is the “line in the sand” that once crossed will usher in higher gold prices.

But before then we may yet see a pull back. USD gold could come all the way back to around the 200 day MA at US$1250 and still remain in a healthy uptrend.

Likewise here in New Zealand the local price could move back close to $1850. But given gold has broken through the multiyear overhead resistance line (near $1950) there are no guarantees of a pullback from here.

If looking to buy a good strategy may be to take an initial position here. Then keep some funds in case we see a pull back or a clear and strong breakout.

Silver Also Holding Up Nicely

Speaking of a breakout, silver in NZ dollars (and USD for that matter) is very close to breaking higher too. This year we’ve seen the NZD silver price touch the multiyear downtrend line 4 times, before pulling back slightly.

It continues to bounce between the 200 day MA (thin red line) and the blue downtrend line.

The same advice applies to silver as gold. Consider an initial position now and keep some powder dry to see what happens in the coming days and weeks.

NZ Dollar Silver Chart

The Kiwi dollar continues to be range bound between 0.67 and 0.70. The RSI is close to overbought again. We’d say as the price approaches the overhead resistance line at 0.70, we’ll see it turn lower.

This should help give local gold and silver prices a boost.

Big Gold Company Mergers Are a Positive Indicator

Things are looking quite buoyant in the precious metals sector. With mergers of some of the largest gold miners. This week Barrick Gold announced a hostile takeover attempt for fellow heavyweight Newmont.

With both these companies having already launched takeovers of Randgold and Goldcorp respectively.

Also Tahoe Resources, a big silver miner recently went to Pan American Silver and also made a deal to combine.

This merger activity highlights the lack of gold and silver discoveries in recent years. It also indicates that a number of these companies had been struggling to survive. The mergers did not involve purchases at a massive premium to the share price – something that happens at the top of a market.

Rather they were done out of survival after lots of cost cutting (gold companies have been slashing costs for years to improve margins in a down market) and no investment in finding new gold and silver resources.

Simply put they’re merging to try to further cut redundant costs and bolster reserves.

On top of that there is still not much publicity towards gold or silver. Which is often a positive thing. As the old saying goes, bull markets like to take as few people along for the ride as possible.

The Real Hunt Brothers Silver Story

Have you heard about the Hunt brothers and their attempt to “corner” the silver market in the 1970’s? There’s more to this story than the simple analysis of two speculators trying to buy so much silver they controlled the price.

Check out the Real Hunter Brothers Silver Story for the full run down. As a silver buyer there are also some important lessons you can learn from the Hunt Brothers mistakes…

Has the Fed Balance Sheet Reduction (Quantitative Tightening) Finished Already?

Back in Mid January we updated the Federal Reserve Balance sheet numbers…

Federal Reserve Balance Sheet Reduction: What Impact Did it Have in 2018? What about 2019?

Federal Reserve Balance Sheet Reduction: What Impact Did it Have in 2018? What about 2019?

The gist of that article was that the Fed’s balance sheet had been built up massively due to the post financial crisis money printing. But that the Fed balance sheet has been reduced by US$375 billion in the past 14 months.

That balance sheet is scheduled to fall by another US$600 billion in 2019 and US$600 billion the following year, until the balance sheet reaches a level of US$2.9 trillion by the end of 2020.

We concluded that article by saying:

“The damage may have already been done by the Feds Q.T. But so far in 2019 they are continuing to tighten, to the tune of $27 billion in the first 2 weeks. This puts them on track to tighten by the promised $50 Billion per month reduction in their balance sheet.

So even while the Fed president may be indicating a ceasing of interest rate rises, their balance sheet reduction continues.

Now before too long the central bankers will likely have to reverse course and reopen the money spigots. Perhaps come up with even more new ways to interfere and prop up markets. As Rickards points out, this is the sort of environment that will likely be gold positive.”

Has this reversal happened already?

Our favourite financial newsletter writer and secret investment advisor Chris Weberpointed out in his latest newsletter:

Fed Balance Sheet Actually Grows In Latest Report

“As we go to press, the most recent Fed balance sheet shows that the recent regular declines [in the Fed balance sheet] have stopped, after getting smaller. The latest report, out yesterday, shows a small $2.1 billion increase. It doesn’t look like this Fed is going to do anything but inflate more. And this can only have positive long term effects on the precious metals.”

So as a financial reporter might say, “Have you got some exposure to the current upside risk in gold currently?”

Or said like a normal human being – “Do you own some gold as it might be worth more in the future?”
