Prices and Charts
Gold in NZD Still Holding Above the 200 Day Moving Average
In US Dollar terms gold dipped to new 2018 lows this week (see the lower half of the below chart). However with the NZ Dollar weakening sharply, the local price of gold is actually up for the week by 0.88%.
USD gold may well have formed a bottom yesterday after touching the uptrend line from late 2015. So if the Kiwi dollar remains fairly weak (more on that shortly), we could see a challenge of the $1900 mark again before too long.
We’re Seeing the Same Pattern in Silver
The USD price of silver (bottom half of the below chart) also made a new low for 2018 yesterday before jumping back today. We saw a false breakout higher in silver last month from the multiyear wedge formation. So perhaps we are witnessing a false break lower now too?
Meanwhile in NZ dollar silver is holding above the moving average lines and remains close to breakout levels. Much like gold we could see NZD silver push higher if the Kiwi dollar remains weak.
Kiwi Dollar Even Weaker
You can see in the below chart that the NZ dollar clearly broke below the horizontal support line at 0.68. Yesterday the Kiwi even dipped briefly below 0.67.
The 5 year chart below shows the NZ dollar is at its lowest point for over 2 years. It now sits not too far above the multiyear low at 0.62. But the Kiwi remains extremely oversold so we are still waiting for a bounce higher in the short term.
However if the NZ dollar weakness persists and we get a bit of strength in US gold and silver prices, we could see some new highs in local precious metals prices in the months ahead.
Seasonally June is often also the weakest month for gold, making now a good time to buy.

Gold Mining Shares Moving Higher – Leading Indicator for Gold
Another positive currently is that gold mining shares have been moving higher over the past week. Even while gold itself has been falling.
As NIA pointed out 2 days ago:
“Historically, gold miners have led gold prices higher, with miners breaking out before the price of gold and making their largest gains during the early stages of major gold rallies. By GDX rising big despite gold sitting near its 2018 low, it is an extremely bullish sign that a major gold rally is ahead.”

Rickards: Gold Price Has Been Locked to SDRs and Global Monetary Reset is Under Way
Have you read about the IMF Special Drawing Rights (SDRs)?
The latest research from Jim Rickards points to the gold price being “locked” to the SDR since the Chinese Yuan was added to the SDR in 2016.
It’s an interesting theory and worth checking out…

Why Gold Bullion is Your Financial Insurance
Each week we write about what the gold price is doing and where it may go in the future.
But this week we’ve written an article about why only thinking about the profit potential of gold is perhaps a mistake.
If you have trouble convincing anyone of the need to hold gold, then this may help. We compare gold to a standard insurance policy for your house or car, and see how similar it is.
Although there is also a key difference and advantage with gold…
Have you got your financial insurance yet? Remember it’s too late to buy insurance once the “house is on fire”.
