NZD Gold Pulling Back After Getting Close to 2 Year Highs
NZD gold is down about half a percent this week. Pulling back after getting close to 2 year highs just above $1900.
We could see a further retracement to the 50 and 200 day moving averages from here. Just above $1830. That is likely to be a good buying zone.
NZD silver dropped much more sharply this past week. Down just under 2% and now sitting back on the 50 day moving average again. NZD silver could go either way from here. But we’d guess the 50 day MA could prove to be solid support.
Meanwhile the Kiwi dollar is once again challenging the 50 day moving average line. A line it hasn’t managed to get definitively above since April. However this week the dollar may have made a higher low. So perhaps it could be done falling for now. And maybe will try to consolidate around these levels?

NZ Small Business Revenue Follows Confidence Down
We’ve been reporting lately on the slow down in the NZ economy. See: Could Stagflation Happen Again? and New Zealand Inflation Up More Than Expected – What’s Coming Next?
A new survey out this week focused on small and medium sized business shows a sharp slump in both general confidence and – more worryingly – revenue, with petrol costs standing out as the biggest concern.
“The MYOB Business Monitor Snapshot, which polls 412 small and medium sized business operators, found 53 per cent now expect New Zealand’s economy to decline over the next 12 months.”
So we are starting to see some actual numbers to support the low business confidence numbers in NZ.
New Zealand’s September net migration gain down 21% from September 2016 peak
Net migration numbers also continue to fall.
“Statistics NZ said there was a net gain of 6263 people in September, which was the lowest it has been for the month of September since 2014.
That’s down 21% from the September 2016 peak of 7904.
On an annual basis there was a net gain of 62,733 in the 12 months to September, the lowest it has been for that period since 2015, and down 12% from the September year peak of 70,986 in the 12 months to September last year.
The fact that the monthly net gain figures are falling at a faster rate than the annual figures suggests the numbers are continuing to decline.”
This is adding a bit of weight to what we surmised back in July when we wrote:
