Happy New Year! Welcome to 2017.

We hope work isn’t too tough if you’re back at it or that the weather is good if you’re still holidaying. We’re writing today from the very hot Hawkes bay where the mercury is above 30 degrees again today.

In our last Newsletter we stated that we thought it likely there could be a further downdraft in the metals over the holiday period with a retest of the December lows. We envisaged a repeat of the previous couple of years where the low volume time of year saw the prices pushed lower.

This didn’t happen at all. Quite the opposite in fact. Silver and gold have moved steadily higher just about every day for the past few weeks.

While NZ gold is down today it is still up over 3% since we last wrote on 22nd December. For the third December in a row gold looks to have bottomed out right when the RSI overbought/oversold indicator reached extreme lows (see the blue circles in the chart below).

So as per one of the items we shared last month, December does look to have been a great time to buy. Which was exactly why most people didn’t!

Gold also looks to be following a similar script to December 2015 when the US Fed last raised interest rates. That is, by falling immediately after the rate rise, before then steadily moving higher.

NZ Dollar Gold Chart

Silver has been rising too although lagging gold slightly, up 2.80% since 22nd December. As noted in one of this week’s articles this is not a huge surprise, as silver generally does lag gold in the early stages of rising trends.

As can be seen in the below chart, NZD silver also looks like it might have bottomed out in December. It too remains in a longer term rising trend as shown by the lower rising trendline.

NZ Dollar Silver Chart

The NZ Dollar has also been rising over the holiday period. It is now bumping up against both the 50 and 200 day moving averages (MA), so it will be interesting to see if it can get any stronger than this. Also of note is that the 50 day MA has just crossed below the 200 day moving average which can signal a change in medium term trend – to falling.

Where to From Here?

Next week we’ll have our usual yearly review of gold and silver performance, along with a look back at our predictions from a year ago and a few guesses for 2017 too.

But for now we’ll say, looking at the charts it wouldn’t be surprising to see a pull back pretty soon in both metals after pretty solid rises since Christmas. Both silver and gold are touching their respective 50 day moving averages. Plus the RSI indicators are getting up there too, although not in overbought territory yet.

Our guess is that both gold and silver have bottomed out with the high levels of pessimism that surrounded them before the holidays. So any pullback from here could be a very handy place to make a purchase.

Steve Sjuggerud who timed the high in gold last July almost perfectly, also believes now is once again the time to buy.

“Since gold peaked over the summer, people have been bugging me to tell them when to get back in. Now, FINALLY, gold is a buy again… We just had to wait for the right timing.

Let me explain…

Back in July, I told the crowd that I personally took my biggest position in gold and gold stocks – ever – in January 2016.

Gold stocks were more hated than they’d ever been – seriously – so I urged my True Wealth subscribers to buy them. We sold half of our position over the summer for a 95% gain.

Again, we got the timing exactly right. We bought near the bottom, and sold near the top.

So when people asked me to tell them when to get back in, I said I was waiting for investors to give up on gold. But darn it, gold investors were stubborn… It took them many months to give up.

If you’ve been a DailyWealth reader for a while, you know what I look for… I want gold to be HATED and in the start of an UPTREND.

In the latest issue of my True Wealth newsletter, I told my subscribers:


We will be gold buyers when two things happen: 1) Gold becomes a bit more hated, and 2) the uptrend returns. That may take a few months.


My friends, here at the beginning of 2017, we finally have what we’re looking for… Gold is no longer as loved as it was… AND we have the start of an uptrend.

We nailed the buy in early 2016. We nailed the sell in the summer of 2016. And now, here in early 2017, I’m saying the coast is finally clear…

If you’ve been waiting since this summer for my “permission” to buy gold… you did the right thing. Gold went nowhere but down for months.

However, things have changed in 2017… So my opinion has to change…

If you were waiting for my permission, now you have it!”

If you buy you certainly won’t be following the crowd at all as it remains very quiet in terms of purchasers. Although probably many people are still on Holiday. Enjoy it if you’re one of them!
