Gold Breaks Down From Sideways Consolidation
Gold in New Zealand Dollars is down almost 3% from 7 days ago. Breaking down at last from the sideways consolidation. So our guess from last week was wrong. Where we thought the consolidation may continue for a while yet, instead we have seen a sharp fall.
NZD gold is now down to the lower support line in this rising trend channel (parallel blue lines). Also sitting just under the 50 day moving average.
At the risk of being wrong again, this looks like a very good buying opportunity. As gold is also now back just above the top of the range it traded in from March to early May.
So there are a number of reasons to expect gold to bottom out around here.
NZD Silver Down Over 5% – Hitting Rising Trendline
Silver fell even harder than gold. NZD silver is down over 5% from last week.
But like gold, silver is also now touching the rising uptrend line. It also sits right on the 200 day moving average line. So like gold there are also a couple of good reasons for silver to bounce up from here too.
New Zealand Dollar Down Almost 1.5%
The Kiwi dollar also took a pounding this week. US dollar strength saw the exchange rate drop over 100 basis points or almost 1.5%. It is up a little off the lows after also touching oversold on the RSI. Our theory of the NZ Dollar just trading in a large sideways range is so far holding up well. We may be in for a repeat of 2016-2018.

It’s Not Just the Charts Saying Gold May Be Ready to Bounce
A tweet from David Brady (@GlobalProTrader) of SprottMoney also outlines why USD gold may be ready to bounce:
“Sentiment in #Gold is now at its most bearish since May 2019 when it hit a low of 1269. From there it began a trend upwards over the next 15 months to its peak of 2089 in Aug 2020. Daily RSI lowest since Aug 2018 (excl Mar 2021) when #Gold bottomed at 1167. Just FYI.”
As we have said numerous times before, we also have the advantage of tracking buying interest in precious metals. And while we think this looks like a very good buying opportunity, it seems not too many people agree. There is not much interest in buying currently. Certainly nothing like the surges we have seen over the past year or so.
This often works as a contrarian indicator. So our guess is the bottom is likely not far off for this correction. It may just be a short sharp one.
Goldman Sacs: Oversold Gold is Once Again Under-Priced
Gold often correlates closely with real yields. It makes sense, a higher real interest rate return means bonds could be favoured over no yield gold.
The Market Ear points out:
Note the real yields vs gold chart potentially could be “indicating” gold has come down too much too fast.
This Goldman Sacs note, backs up Jim Rickards “Heads I win, tails I don’t lose” theory from last week…
“Gold has sold off in line with rising real rates and a stronger dollar. Goldman does however see an upward price reversal in coming weeks.
“Gold is now pricing a Goldilocks scenario of strong growth without any inflation, implying limited demand for it as either a defensive asset or inflation hedge. This perfect scenario seems unlikely to materialize for two reasons.
First, as our rates strategists noted, the current 10-year breakeven inflation rate is too low vs our economists projected inflation path – in fact it implies almost no inflation risk premium in coming years.
Second, should the Fed’s expectation of transient inflation materialize, higher rates will begin to act as an unnecessary headwind to the global recovery, damaging growth expectations, and raising gold’s defensive value”.
Your Questions Wanted
Remember, if you’ve got a specific question, be sure to send it in to be in the running for a 1oz silver coin.
Does New Zealand Have Bank Deposit Insurance?
A question in from Dennis this week asks:
“I know you did an article a while ago about banks being able to take your deposits. Is New Zealand still the only country not to have any depositor protection – therefore theoretically 100% of deposits could be taken?”
We’re not the only country in the developed world, but we are one of only 2 where there is no bank deposit protection or insurance in place. This may change but it looks like not for a couple of years yet.
This article will get you up to date on the current risks to your bank deposits, along with the future plans for an insurance scheme. Align with how it compares to overseas.

We have some local silver bars available from today. Local suppliers still have no 1kg silver bars available, even on back order. But along with local silver 5oz bars, we also now have 10 oz bars and 500g local silver bars. Limited stock but available now.
We currently have ABC serial numbered 1kg bars on a 2 week back order. These are actually cheaper than comparable bars we’ve seen advertised lately in the USA. So silver down under is well priced globally at the moment.
Also now in stock are 10oz and 500g ABC silver bars too. Phone or email to order them.
