Gold Continues the Sideways Consolidation After the Late September Bounce

Gold in New Zealand dollars was up just $9 this week. This move up was pretty much entirely due to the weaker NZ dollar. As the USD gold price was flat from last week. NZD gold is hovering around the 50 and 200 day moving averages (MA), after bouncing up from the support line at $2500 again. Only time will tell if that is now the bottom. Otherwise we could see a fall to $2450, or even the rising trendline at $2400. NZ Dollar Gold Chart

NZD Silver Down Just 9 Cents

Silver in New Zealand Dollars was down just 9 cents from 7 days ago. Like gold, silver has been in a sideways consolidation the past 2 weeks. Hovering just under the overhead resistance line. We are now watching to see if the bounce up from around $31 which was the November low is finally the bottom. NZ Dollar Silver Chart

NZ Dollar Down 0.34% From Last Week

The New Zealand Dollar is down 24 basis points or 0.34% from 7 days ago. Just after we sent out last week’s newsletter, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) announced the first interest rate hike in 7 years. However the Kiwi actually sold off on that news. We’ll have more on that shortly as to why that might be. So the NZ dollar remains not too far above the recent lows. Still locked in this large sideways trading pattern. NZ Dollar Chart

RBNZ Raises Rates and NZ Dollar Falls?

Just after we hit send last week the Reserve Bank announced they were raising the official cash rate (OCR) by 0.25% to 0.50%. The first rate raise in 7 years. It was also expected to be the first in a number of increases to the OCR. In response the dollar actually fell a little. Now a week later it’s also lower than it was back then. You might expect the Kiwi would rise after an interest rate increase. The standard thinking would be, this is because higher interest rates makes the NZ dollar more attractive to offshore traders/investors. So why is the Kiwi not flying? Our guess is that traders aren’t so sure there will be a number of other interest rate increases ahead. They might also be realising that while the rest of the world is opening up, New Zealand is more shut down than ever. Debt continues to be racked up with so many businesses still shut or under-performing. So traders are perhaps picking we will under-perform other countries in the coming months.

Question of the Month Winner For September

Last week we overlooked announcing the winner of our question of the month award for September. A 1 oz silver coin will be on it’s way to Robert for his question:
“Would the NZ Government start adding GST to gold bullion anytime soon as i understand it is not applied at the moment?”
The question was received and answered last month. But we are in the process of turning it into a post on the website. So look out for that next week.

Interest Rates and Gold: If Interest Rates Rise What Happens to Gold?

The same rationale used above to explain why most people might have expected the NZ dollar to fall, is also often trotted out to say that rising interest will be negative for the price of gold. That is, higher rates make gold less attractive, so the price will fall. However, in this week’s feature article we explain how that is in fact a dramatic oversimplification. It looks at interest rates and gold, specifically answering the question: If interest rates rise, what happens to gold prices? This post covers:
  • A Common Misconception About Gold and Rising Interest Rates
  • What Really Happens to Gold When the Fed Raises Rates?
  • Rising Interest Rates in the 1970’s and the Effect on Gold
  • Real Interest Rates and Gold
  • What Happened to the Gold Price the Last Time the Federal Reserve Hiked Interest Rates?
  • What Might the Future Hold for Interest Rates and Gold?

Interest Rates and Gold: If Interest Rates Rise What Happens to Gold?

As we conclude in this week’s feature article, be sure you have sufficient insurance before the next leg up in precious metals begins. Local refinery operations continue under Level 3. But dispatches to Auckland addresses and collections have been suspended as goods cannot be inspected, counted or signed for by the customer. Dispatches will stored and insured free of charge until it is safe again to dispatch them and signatures can be obtained. When we drop down a level, you will be advised when your order is ready to collect and to book in a collection time to ensure an adequate distance between customers. Although, currently imported orders are continuing to be delivered via Fedex. So that is an option if you are looking to spend more than around NZ$10-15,000.
