Everything is Falling – Including Gold

Look around and just about every sector of the financial world is falling. Stocks, currencies (except the USD), crypt0s all down significantly. House prices too. Bonds are up lately but down for the year. Even gold has joined in lately. However gold in USD terms is only down slightly for the year. While in most other currencies including the NZ Dollar, gold is actually up year to date. But over the past 7 days gold in New Zealand Dollars is down just under 2%. It is back once again to the blue uptrend line. Which to date has proven to be a very good place to buy. Will it repeat this time? Only time will tell. If not then the next buying zones to watch for are $2800, $2750 and then the horizontals support lines at $2700. In USD terms gold was down close to 3% and as noted already is down a touch year to date. NZ Dollar Gold Chart

Silver Following Industrial Metals Lower

In times like these history shows us that silver often reverts to being seen as more of an industrial metal than a monetary metal. Look back to 2008 or even 2020 when Covid first appeared for example of silver dropping sharply. So it probably shouldn’t come as a big surprise to see silver struggling currently. From 7 days ago NZD silver is down over $2 per ounce or over 6%. Silver clearly fell through the blue uptrend line. Currently it is back to the $31 horizontal support line. Just below this is a support zone dating back to 2016. With the RSI now oversold for the first time in almost a year, we should expect a bounce soon. Silver in USD sits in a similar support zone. We watch for an expected bounce. Times like these are why we have always said it pays to have some gold as well as silver. NZ Dollar Silver Chart

NZD Down Against the USD Like Just About Everything Else

The New Zealand dollar was down over 1% this past week. The much maligned US dollar is once again proving to be a safe haven in times when most other sectors are falling. This might be counter intuitive for many. Here’s an explanation that might help from a previous post of ours:
“Many talk about the US dollar being the first to collapse. However as the dollar is at the centre it could in fact be the last. We first heard Sandeep Jaitly say this many years ago and it took a bit to get our head around. Ronald Stoeferle also was of this theory when he was in New Zealand some years ago. We have seen this scenario in action in recent years. With many emerging market currencies falling massively against the US dollar. A collapse is more likely to begin in the periphery and move towards the centre. So somewhat paradoxically, in a “dollar collapse”, it may well be that the US dollar is the last domino to fall.” Source.
This latest fall has taken the NZ dollar to a new 2 year low. Now that the Kiwi has broken below 0.62, we could see it dip even further yet. NZ Dollar Chart

Gold to Silver Ratio Highest Since Mid 2020

This latest fall in silver has pushed the gold silver ratio up above 90. The highest level it has been since mid 2020. In the medium to long term we are still expecting the ratio to head back down to 60. But as always with silver, getting the timing of this is very difficult. Gold silver Ratio  Chart

2022: The Worst Since…

As noted already, 2022 has not been a good year for investments. With stock markets in particular hit hard. But this list we happened across this week even surprised us with how bad 2022 has been so far…
Scott Rubner’s [Bank of America] “worst list”; 1. The US 60/40 “World’s Retirement Portfolio” – second worst start to the year since 1900, that is 122 years. (-17%) 2. The worst start to the year in the past 122 years happened during The Great Depression in 1932 (Market bottom July 8th, 1932) 3. US bonds – worst start to the year on record dating back to 1900 4. The S&P 500 – worst start since 1970 5. The last 4th of July, investors were opening their half-year statements with a +14.41% gain for the S&P, and the 60/40 hasn’t seen a down first half in the past 11 years 6. He sees the biggest risk for 2H is that investors have not seen their 1H half statements and decide to reduce risk 7.

Reader Question: Why is the RBNZ Not Buying Gold?

A very good question recently asked by one thoughtful reader: “Why when the rest of the world’s reserve banks are accumulating gold is the NZ govt not doing the same? And could we expect a confiscation policy in a global currency crisis even with no historical precedence?” Our reader was no doubt aware that the NZ central bank has no gold reserves whatsoever. We outline in today’s article why that is.

How Much Gold Does the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Have in 2022?

As we outline in that article, reports in recent years from the RBNZ indicate that the lack of gold reserves is not likely to change anytime soon either. Looking at the list of central banks who are buying, central banks in the west have been noticeably absent recently. See this World Gold Council report. So it’s not just NZ. It seems eastern and developing world central banks are the ones doing most of the buying. This has been the case for many years. So is that down to the heads of those central banks knowing more than those in the western world? Or maybe rather that western central banks don’t want to put any unnecessary attention on gold, given it is the canary in the coalmine for the fiat currency system? As for confiscation, never say never, but that is likely down the list of other things governments could resort to first. Especially given how low the gold holdings in NZ (and other countries) likely are. But we have a full discussion of that here:

How Long Lasting Will the Surge in NZ Inflation Be?

The Quarter 2 NZIER Quarterly Survey of Business Opinion is out. ASB reports:
  • The Q2 QSBO depicted stagflation-like conditions for the business sector, with shrinking economic activity, still-intense capacity pressures and soaring prices and costs.
  • Risks of a hard-landing continue to increase, albeit it’s not our core view at present.
  • Despite a soft activity backdrop, the OCR needs to move higher to try and cool increasingly entrenched high inflation. We expect a 50bp hike next week and a 3.50% OCR peak.
In another report last week ASB also asked the question: How long lasting will the surge in NZ inflation be?
  • Developments in the labour market play a pivotal role in impacting inflation, although many of the factors influencing labour market conditions are outside of the RBNZ’s control.
  • Short of a material loosening in tight labour market conditions, there is the risk of annual CPI inflation remaining above 3% for considerably longer than the RBNZ May 2022 MPS forecasts imply.
  • Prospects of a soft economic landing look less assured and the RBNZ may face uncomfortable trade-offs ahead.
Our guess is the hard landing will shift to being their “core view” before too long. Make sure you have enough gold to protect you from that. Please get in touch if you have any questions:
