Prices and Charts
NZD Gold and Silver Down Slightly
Gold in NZ Dollars is down slightly from a week ago. Got close to testing the resistance line from April, but pulling back again now.
With the NZ dollar oversold and perhaps ready to bounce a bit, you may get a chance to buy gold slightly lower. Watch for the 50 day MA at $1820 as a possible buy zone, as since August NZD gold has managed to stay above that. It may be building to try and break the uptrending resistance line above $1880 before too long.
NZD Silver for the third time this year nudged up against the downtrend line from July 2016. But did not manage to break through it. The price is getting very compressed now though. It is sitting just above the intersecting 50 and 200 day moving averages. Also not too far above the blue short term uptrend line.
Will it therefore shortly break out above the red downtrend line? Or head lower again to test the longer term uptrend line just below $22?
Your guess is probably as good as ours! But with the amount of negativity towards precious metals currently it may not take much buying to push silver higher. So perhaps we’ll see another challenge of the downtrend line before very long?
Is the NZ Dollar Now in a Longer Term Downtrend?
As noted already the NZ Dollar is still oversold. It looks to have found support at the 0.6825 level for now. So odds favour a short term bounce higher from here.
Maybe all the government policy news had been digested and priced in? Although we’re not so sure. The Kiwi Dollar is one of the few to be down against the US Dollar this year.
Below is a longer term NZ Dollar chart. The Kiwi has clearly broken below the blue uptrend line in October with the election result. At the same time it also seems to be in a slight downtrend for 2017.
So perhaps we are now in a longer term downtrend for the Kiwi Dollar?
If so then it should go without saying that this should be a good environment for holding gold and silver. Why?
If the NZ dollar is falling, the US Dollar prices of gold and silver merely have to hold their ground to see a gain in price for NZ holders of precious metals. But if the US dollar prices head higher then that will amplify these gains. And if we look back up at the lower half of the gold and silver charts above – which show the USD prices – gold and silver look to have bottomed out at the start of 2016 and be in quiet uptrends since then.

Will The New NZ Government Policies Cause a House Price Crash?
Speaking of government policies, our feature article this week looks at the policy of stopping foreigners from buying existing housing stock. Will this cause a house price crash as analyst Martin Armstrong believes?
- We look at his comments and try to have a balanced look at what might happen.
- We also updated our NZ Housing to Gold ratio numbers for 2017.
- Has the ratio now peaked? Meaning gold could outperform housing in NZ once again?

Really the Last Reminder: Here’s How to Connect With Other Like-Minded New Zealanders
We’ve come up with a plan to help connect people around the country. People who are free thinking and freedom loving.
We’ve called these Gold Survival Guide Circles. Which are simply casual meet ups where you can mix and mingle with other like minded people.
It’s probably the most common thing we hear: “I’ve got no one to discuss any of this gold and silver stuff with”. These Circles should solve that problem – but only if we get enough people from your area interested!
If you’ve at all interested in connecting with others then read this now and express your interest (before tomorrow if you’re in Auckland – see below).
Last Chance to Attend the First Auckland Circle Gathering Tomorrow
Last chance to attend the first Auckland Circle gathering on tomorrow, Thursday 2 November at 6.30 pm. Click the link above to register for that.
Finally Remember, if you’ve got specific question, be sure to send it in to be in the running for a 1oz silver coin.
Check out the other articles on the site this week below too. We’ve got a more detailed look at the silver charts. Plus why an increase in money velocity could be coming resulting in higher inflation.
Do you own any precious metals yet? If not now may be a good time to buy. With NZ property prices potentially topping out, plus the NZ dollar also possibly trending down. Owning alternative assets should hedge you against both of these outcomes.
