NZD Gold Continues to Consolidate Above Uptrend Line
Gold in New Zealand dollars was up around $11 from a week ago. It continues to consolidate above the rising blue trendline. If this consolidation fails, then the next buying zone to watch for would be the support/resistance line at $2700. Below that would be the 200 day moving average, which is currently at $2643. But this current area is likely to be a good place to begin making purchases.
Silver Going the Other Way – Down 1.5% to Retest the Downtrend Line
Meanwhile, silver in New Zealand dollars went in the opposite direction to gold. Down 56 cents from 7 days prior. Silver now sits right on the downtrend line of the wedge that it broke out of in February.
It is not a big surprise to see it retest this break out. Something we have been saying to watch for over the past few weeks. It could still dip lower to the 200 day MA or even down to the blue uptrend line. But like gold, between here and those points is likely to be a good long term buying zone.
Kiwi Dollar Still Hovering Around the 200 Day Moving Average (MA)
The New Zealand dollar is down 14 basis points from last Wednesday. The Kiwi continues to hover around the 200 day MA at 0.69. After a consolidation we could yet see it push up to 0.70 which is the top of the downtrend channel. That will likely be tough resistance. With the likes of the USA and now Australia looking to also finally raise their interest rates, this could be a headwind to larger NZ dollar gains.

Has Russia Just Put a Floor Under Gold?
Last week we discussed how the USA and other countries blocked Russian use of the SWIFT international payment system. Then went even further by freezing around $300 billion of Russia’s $640-billion gold and forex reserves.
Call Putin what you will, but he does seem to be as cunning as a weasel.
Last week Russia announced a kind of financial counterattack. With the central bank announcing that it will between now and 30 June purchase gold from local Russian banks at a fixed price. What are the implications on the gold price of this move?
In this week’s feature article we look at a number of opinions on this move. It covers:
- What is the Rationale Behind Russia’s Fixed Gold Price?
- A Reminder of the U.S. Response to the Great Depression
- Ronan Manly in ZeroHedge Calls This Move “A Paradigm Shift Western Media Hasn’t Grasped Yet”
- What Will Happen on June 30?

We forgot to announce the winner of the coin for best question in February. It was Gary with this one:
Watching our dollar fall is puzzling me. I thought that NZ was well regarded with respect to covid control and exports making our country relatively stable financially. Yet we have lost approximately eight cents in the last year, to 2016 levels, and the trend seems to be pushing us lower to the dark days of 2020 when we briefly dipped to below sixty cents.
Is there a reason for this, I seem to be missing something?
