We’ll be brief today as we have a funeral to run out the door to shortly. But we’ve got a bit of reading for you on the website this week anyway.

NZD Gold and Silver Both Shooting Higher This Week

Both metals were up around 1.7% on last week. Getting an extra boost from the weakening NZ dollar.
Gold in NZ dollars is now well above the 200 day moving average. But after jumping sharply higher this week, it is also getting very close to overbought territory on the RSA indicator (see top of chart). So odds are before too long we should see a pull back, perhaps to around the 200 day MA level around $1735.

NZD silver has also jumped very sharply. Although it possibly has a little more room to run higher yet. It hasn’t reached the 200 day MA and is not overbought yet.

NZ Dollar Silver Chart

The Kiwi Dollar continued to plummet this week. Now down below the 50 day MA and well into oversold territory. Also at the bottom of the lower Bollinger band (the blue shaded area). So we could see the Kiwi hold up here. But we wonder if it might yet test the 200 day MA just above 0.71, as any interest rate rises here look to be some way off currently.

Be sure to check out our articles this week listed below. We have a new feature available on the website, plus thoughts from Jim Rickards on a coming gold breakout. Plus our research on the impact of war on the gold price and what might happen if a war broke out with North Korea (as Jim Rickards thinks is likely).
Both metals are up sharply this week but in the long run we’re still not too far above the recent lows. Still a decent time to be purchasing gold and silver as long term “financial insurance”. But keep an eye out for possible lower prices in the next week or so too.
