NZD Gold Drifting Lower

Gold in NZ Dollars is lower again this week. Albeit by only one third of a percent. Overnight the price dipped below the upper rising blue trendline. This was caused by the Kiwi dollar rising sharply the past 2 days. However once Trump announced he may wait until after the November 2020 US elections to make a trade deal with China, gold jump sharply. End result, the NZ dollar price only dipped intraday below the rising trendline. Now back up above it. So it’s still anyone’s guess as to whether gold will return back to the 200 day moving average line. Or whether it is bottoming out here. More on what gold may do in the coming weeks further down the page… NZ Dollar Gold Chart

Silver Still Holding Above $26

Silver also dipped overnight before bouncing back. It has now touched the $26 support line 6 times in the past month. So it looks to be trying to eek out a bottom there. As we’ve said before, this is a retracement of 50% from the sharp run higher. Such a retracement is not uncommon after strong moves. NZ Dollar Silver Chart

NZ Dollar Has Broken Out of Sideways Trading Range

The NZ Dollar has finally broken out of the sideways trading range it has been in since September. Yesterday it jumped sharply above the resistance line at 0.6450. Then rose again today. This seems to be on the expectation that the central bank won’t be cutting rates here quite as quickly as some economists may have thought. Or not as quick as some other nations might be. Personally we’re not so convinced. NZ Dollar Chart

Discussions of QE in Australia Increasing – How About NZ?

Australia is one of those nations who might be cutting interest rates even more in the not too distant future. Last December we reported that the Australian central bank was murmuring about the possibility of quantitative easing in Australia. The discussion of money printing in Australia has come up again this past week. Greg Canavan commented in his Rum Rebellion:
“Last night, RBA Governor Phillip Lowe gave a speech on ‘unconventional’ monetary policy. He tried to distance the RBA from it, saying that it would be unlikely he would use it in Australia. Yet he’s cut rates three times already this year. It wasn’t long ago that the RBA expected to see a strengthening economy and interest rate rises. If Australia doesn’t need ‘unconventional’ monetary policy, then why does Lowe mention it often? He initially raised the prospect of QE in front of a House of Economics Committee in early August. As the Financial Review reported at the time:
‘Dr Lowe says the RBA is examining several policy options from overseas, extreme monetary policy measures often dubbed quantitative easing (QE). ‘Such measures include buying financial assets to drive down long-term market interest rates in bond markets, including government bond yields. ‘Dr Lowe [said] some of these measures are not necessarily appropriate for Australia and it is too early for a full evaluation of the consequences. ‘Lowe says it is “unlikely” the RBA will pursue QE, but it is “prudent” to consider.’
10-year Aussie government bonds were already yielding around 1%. Does Lowe really think the market is waiting for rates to fall further before committing to large investments and hiring workers? He’s bringing QE into the national discourse for a reason. It’s because he thinks it’s coming. He just doesn’t want to add to the panic and headlines when it eventually arrives. So, the thinking goes, let’s talk about it now. In the meantime, this unelected bureaucrat is putting pressure on the government to increase spending and stimulus via fiscal policy. Let’s get this straight: Lowe and his ilk have cut rates for a decade. As a result, the economy has way more debt, and is far more structurally unsound. In other words, it is far more susceptible to shocks than it used to be. And now Lowe wants the government to spend more? How does he think that is going to do any lasting good for this country? The ONLY way the government should increase the deficit is by reducing taxes, not by increasing spending. At least that way the spending will be efficient and more productive.”
The situation is very similar here in New Zealand. We also have a central bank making regular comments about quantitative easing. But then also saying it is very unlikely. But as Greg notes. If this is so unlikely, why are they spending so much time discussing it?  Why back in June did they ask for public input on the decision-making around quantitative easing? (We outline all the options that the RBNZ has been discussing here: RBNZ Prepared to Print Money and Implement Negative Interest Rates in a Crisis – Banks Think It’s Now Possible Too) Meanwhile like his Australian counterpart, the RBNZ governor has been calling for more spending from the government. In fact going a step further and telling government, businesses and households back in August to “wake up and go and spend”. So we think it’s only a matter of time before we follow Australia’s lead. First to further rate cuts. Next to other more inventive monetary policy such as QE. Perhaps this current rise in the Kiwi dollar may only be a short term phenomenon? In the long run all currencies are being devalued against gold. They just take it in turns at being the worst or best performer against each other.

Carrying Gold into a Foreign Country. What are the Rules? (Updated)

The holiday season is a common time for people to visit family overseas. So heading into that time of the year it’s worth knowing what the rules are with respect to carrying gold into a foreign country.

Will Gold Once Again Fall Over the Holiday Period?

We pointed out last year “Why Buying Gold This Year is Better Than Waiting Until Next Year”. We’ve updated the chart in our Ultimate Guide to When to buy Gold or Silver. The chart of gold in NZ Dollars below, shows that you’ll also want to buy this year and not wait for next year. As in 9 of the last 10 years buying towards the end of one year saw the gold price higher at the end of the following year (see the green arrows). Note: We’re counting this year as one of those 9 years where gold finishes the year higher than it ended the last year. That is assuming gold doesn’t tumble all the way back down to $1900 before the end of December – not very likely we’d say. Also keep an eye out for sharp drops in the price of gold and silver over the low volume Christmas and New Year holidays. In 8 of the last 10 years we have seen the gold price fall sharply around this time (see the green ellipses). Therefore also making it a good time to buy gold and silver near the end of the calendar year. Will 2019 prove to be the same? Hard to say. So far we’ve seen gold falling in November. Last year gold did the same, but then rose throughout December. Will we see a repeat of that? Or a further fall as in the previous 5 years? Here’s what else is covered in the Ultimate Guide:
  • 5 Factors to Consider in Deciding When to Buy Gold or Silver
  • Using Technical Analysis to Determine When to Buy Gold and Silver
  • Using Gold Seasonality to Determine the Best Month to Buy Gold and Silver

So if you’re waiting for a further fall to buy, it’s a tough call as to whether there will be one. As noted already it’s common for gold and silver to fall between Christmas and New Year when trading volume is very low. The trouble is that some suppliers are closed over this period. We’ll still be here – albeit without access to some suppliers. It could be wise to at least take a position now in case we get a repeat of last year. That is a rise throughout December. Plus you have the choice of more products to buy currently compared to the Christmas close down period. Get in touch to grab one of the 3 remaining 10kg Perth Mint Silver boxes…
