Year in Review Coming Soon

Happy New Year! May it be a healthy and prosperous one for you!

Like much of New Zealand we’re easing back into it this week. So we’ll keep it short so you can get back to the BBQ or head for a swim in whatever body of water you prefer.

Next week we’ll have our annual year in review article so stay tuned for that.

Gold and Silver Again Bottom in December

As we were expecting and pointed out repeatedly towards the end of last year, gold and silver both did bottom in December, just like they did at the end of 2016.

Gold in NZ Dollars rallied strongly over the holiday break even with the headwind of an also strengthening NZ Dollar.

After such a strong run gold has been pulling back over the past few days. It has pared its gains a little but is still up sharply from early December.

From here we can expect a consolidation. But then we’d also expect to see higher prices in the coming months too. And a move back up to the next resistance level around $1900.

NZ Dollar Gold Chart

NZD silver also jumped higher over the holidays. But like gold it has pulled back in recent days. We’d expect to see it challenge the recent high above $25 in the next month or 2 also.

NZ Dollar Silver Chart

Unlike NZD gold and silver (which are at neutral levels), the NZ Dollar is seriously overbought – above 70 on the RSI. The Kiwi is also bumping along the upper Bollinger band and touching the blue downtrend line.

So odds favour a decent pullback from here. Our guess is the Kiwi remains in a longer term downtrend line and could head back to the 0.68 level again (more on that in our year in review and guesses for next year).
