NZD Gold Jumps 2.5% From a Week Ago

Gold in New Zealand dollars is up $69 or 2.5% from 7 days ago. Today it has risen sharply up off the blue trendline once again. That line is proving to be strong support. Now we are watching to see if it can make a higher high above $2925 and then make a move towards the early October high at $3050.

But recent history suggests any return to the blue uptrend line will be a good buying zone. So watch that line if you are sitting on the fence in terms of when to buy.

Gold in USD is back up close to the recent high. So we’re watching to see if it can put in a higher high above $1850 now.

NZ Dollar Gold Chart

NZD Silver Surging Over 4%

Silver continues to outperform gold. Surging over 4% from a week ago to a new high above $38 for this run higher from September. NZD silver is closing in on the multiyear downtrend line again. Can we see it finally bust above that? It is getting close to overbought (above 70) on the RSI indicator. So we may see silver pull back first once it touches the downtrend line. But both gold and silver do seem to be building quite nicely at the moment.

Silver in US dollars is also closing in on its multi year downtrend line. We could see it head up towards that before a bit of a pullback.

NZ Dollar Down Almost 2% This Week

While gold and silver have been strong this week, the Kiwi dollar has weakened. Down by close to 2 % so that gave local precious metals prices a further boost. We could still see the NZ dollar pull back a little further yet.

Silver Coin Premiums Drop Even Lower With Falling Demand

The premium or mark up above the spot price has continued to drop over the past couple of weeks. This often happens as demand falls off.

So we once again have backdated silver coins such as Canadian MaplesAustrian Philharmonics and South African Krugerrands all available for sale.

Of note is that the backdated silver maples are now over $2100 cheaper per 500 mint box compared to the latest issue 2022 maple coins. The Philharmonics and Krugerrands are close to $200 cheaper again. Those 2 are the lowest priced world mint silver coins currently.

As we’ve often seen in the past, these times of low demand often end up being some of the best times to buy. When the crowd is not buying is likely a contrarian signal that you should be doing just the opposite.

More of the Mainstream Are Starting to Join the 1970’s Redu Theme

If you’ve been following us for any length of time you’ll have heard us say that we think something similar to the 1970’s is the most likely scenario we are heading for. Of course history doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme. And we have thought for some time that the tune will be similar to that of the 1970’s. With low growth and high inflation compared to the recent past. Or what is known as stagflation. (For example, we pondered “Could stagflation happen again?” back in 2018). 

Just this week Australia’s sovereign wealth fund announced it was altering its investment strategy for the times ahead. Specifically:

“Australia’s A$200 billion ($134.28 billion) sovereign wealth fund is increasing exposure to gold, commodities, … as it warns the future will echo the low-growth, high-inflation era of the 1970s.

The Future Fund outlined the changes, which also included widening its currency basket, in a note on Friday that questioned the value of traditional 60-40 portfolios [60% stocks-40% bonds] and called for an investing shift to confront a world dealing with war, inflation and climate change.

“In this kind of environment there is a real risk of simultaneous slow growth, high unemployment, and rising prices that has some parallels with the stagflationary period that struck developed markets in the 1970s,” the note said.”

ASB Also Making Comparisons to the 1970’s for Housing

ASB this week increased its house price prediction to a total fall of 25%, which also rhymes with the 1970’s…

“Faint glimmer of hope but train still in the tunnel. ASB has revised its house price prediction to a total fall of 25%. That’s a sizable price fall, and in inflation-adjusted terms it is nearly as large as the 1974-1980 slump.”

Recession for USA in Next Few Months?

Bank of America (B of A) Chief Investment Strategist Michael Hartnett thinks there is a rising possibility that the USA will see a recession in the next few months…

Recession ASAP
Hartnett points out why we could see a recession within 10-12 weeks:
1. yield curve extremely inverted
2. oil crashing despite the China reopening, Russia oil price cap, SPR running “dry” and OPEC saying supply is constrained
3. bank stocks tanking recently
4. ISM manufacturing new orders down 3 straight months at time of high inventories
5. Housing looking shaky



The B of A chart shows the NZ housing fall at 8% Year on Year, is second only to Sweden and USA. Although the ASB report cited above says house prices are now down 14% overall.

Despite Fall NZ Housing Still Expensive on Multiple Measures

Also a report from Harbour Asset Management points out that despite these falls, NZ housing remains expensive on a price to income ratio and mortgage serviceability basis…

“…the nationwide data implies a 30% decline in house prices is necessary to return this house price-to-income ratio to average, assuming no change in income. Alternatively, if prices don’t move, it would take seven years of 5% income growth to return the ratio to average.”

… It currently requires 64% of the median household disposable income to service a 30-year mortgage on a median house. For the new house buyer, house prices would need to decline by 28% for the mortgage servicing ratio to return to the 15-year average.”

“Many commentators have highlighted the weakness in the housing market, with bank economists among the first to place high risks going into 2023 for yet lower house prices and falling activity. Perhaps we are already well-progressed in the adjustment of house prices and the housing market, however, numerous indicators point to yet further pressures from:

  • Low affordability
  • Strong near-term building activity, and
  • Low population growth.

Most periods of adjustment are measured in years and, in the absence of a significant change in incomes, interest rates or migration, the housing market may face further adjustment into 2023.”

Kiwis Warned to ‘Prepare’ as New Grim Picture of ‘Challenging’ 2023 Emerges

ASB also believes that, like the USA, NZ will enter a recession next year…

“New Zealanders are being warned to “prepare now” for what one major bank predicts will be a “challenging 2023” due to “stubbornly high” inflation and an official cash rate expected to hit a 14-year high.

ASB on Tuesday released its December quarterly economic forecast, predicting New Zealand will enter a recession in 2023 with rising unemployment, high inflation and climbing interest rates.

Chief economist Nick Tuffley said there is a clear message for New Zealanders: “Prepare now for a challenging 2023.”

“My advice to New Zealanders is act now: don’t wait until challenges land at your doorstep to get on top of your finances,” he said.

“Take advantage of the help available from your bank to get your loan structure right and take a hard look at your spending and saving levels.”

That is probably good advice overall. Although of course in what looks like being a high inflation environment, saving dollars may not be so much help to the average Kiwi.

Better of course to hold something that will retain its purchasing power over the years to come. Wonder what that could be?
