Happy New year to you! Here’s hoping this year sees an awakening of even more people and an end to the craziness of the past couple of years.

Since we’re still trying to pretend it’s the holidays we’ll just have a brief update for you this week. Hopefully you’re still relaxing yourself…

Not Much Volatility in Precious Metals This Holiday Period

In our last update on 22 December, we pointed out that gold and silver often see large moves in the low volume period over the Christmas and New Year break. Although we also noted that for the past 3 years we haven’t seen this happen. Perhaps not coincidentally those previous 3 years had seen gold in a strongly rising market.

Well this year followed the previous 3. Gold and silver are both up since our last weekly update on Wednesday 22 December. Silver did take a bit of a dip just after New Year, but gold has been pretty steady.

So is this lack of volatility, like those previous 3 years, a sign of good things to come for the rest of 2022? If you look hard enough you can find patterns to suit you anywhere. So we’ll just say who knows? There is plenty enough craziness in the world still that could give gold and silver a boost higher in the future.

NZD Gold Up Almost $40 (1.5%) Since 22 December 2021

Gold in New Zealand Dollars is up almost $40 or 1.5% since our last update on 22 December 2021.

It bumped up against the major overhead resistance line near $2700 a couple of times and today is back close to that mark again. The uptrend from late November continues. As we have pointed out recently $2700 is the 12 month high and likely to be a tough nut to crack. So we could still see gold dip back to the uptrend line yet again. However it seems inevitable that gold will break that before too much longer.

NZD Silver Bouncing Back – Up Close to 1% Since 22 December

As noted already silver did dip lower just after New Year. But it has bounced back in recent days to be up close to 1% since our last update just prior to Christmas.

NZD silver remains in the sideways trading range it has been in since August. It looks to have made a couple of higher lows since bottoming at the end of September. So it might take a little bit more of this sideways movement before it can move back up and challenge the downtrend line dating back to the 2020 high at $45.

NZD Remains in a Downtrend

The New Zealand dollar is up just 19 basis points since we last wrote about it. So far it has been unable to get back above the bottom of the sideways range it has been in for all of 2021. So for now it remains in a clear downtrend channel.

Everyone is Wondering: “Gold – Will You Ever Break Out?”

A new year’s update from The Market Ear asks what probably a lot of people are wondering…

“Gold – will you ever break out?

Gold continues trading inside the huge consolidation that has been in place since Q3 2020. Most believers have switched to other assets, creating an interesting set up for gold. The big resistance levels are still in place, but one way to play a possible gold squeeze is via relatively cheap optionality. Despite gold moving higher recently, gold volatility, GVZ, has traded lower. GVZ is at the lowest levels since Feb 2020. Have people forgotten that gold volatility trades with a positive skew? GLD call spreads are offering rather cheap ways to play a potential break out higher…”

And When Everyone Is Wondering if Something Will Ever Happen…

That’s when it usually does.

The above chart is showing that a breakout is getting close. Because there is not much room left inside the wedge or pennant consolidation pattern. We’ve now added this pattern into our weekly USD silver chart – see the bottom section of the first chart from earlier in today’s update.

That is worth keeping an eye on we reckon. A decent sized move may not be far away now.


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.

Win a silver coin

You could do like The Market Ear says and buy GLD options on the expectation of a move higher in the price of gold. But buying some of the metal will work out okay too. Plus unlike options, a lump of gold doesn’t expire worthless if you don’t get the timing quite right. History shows gold will never be worth zero.
