NZD Gold Another New All Time High
NZD gold edged up to a new another new all time high this week. It looks to be consolidating above $2400 now.
The RSI overbought/oversold indicator remains in seriously overbought mode. Just as it did through all of August!
Are you still waiting for a pullback?
We guarantee one will come. The only trouble is from how much higher?
As we’ve been saying, bull markets like to take as few people along for the ride as possible. We still get the impression there are plenty on the sidelines still waiting for the “inevitable” pullback.
And while gold is getting a bit more publicity lately we haven’t seen it reach into the mainstream at all yet.
We will likely see a very sharp pullback at some point. So just bear that in mind if you’ve bought. There are likely to be some big down days. It seems like these down spikes are likely to be bought rather than sold though. So they may be short lived.
Silver is the Star (at Last!)
Silver has finally awoken from its slumber. Up over 6% this week compared to golds less than 1%.
NZD silver is now above the 2016 high of $30. In fact it is the highest price we’ve seen for 6 years. We have to look back to 2013 for the last time silver was above NZ$30.
This outperformance of silver compared to gold has been a long time coming. The gold to silver ratio has fallen sharply this past week. More on that below.
Just like gold silver is now seriously overbought. But also like gold, silver could well stay this way for longer too.
But unlike gold in New Zealand dollars, NZD silver still has 100% upside from here to reach its all time high above $60. Silver is still our best buy.
Also of note…
In the Comex futures and options market gold has the largest positions from hedge funds and other ‘Managed Money’ speculators in the 13 years of data…
…Compare that to silver. When looking at last week’s data, the same group’s bullish bets on silver (net of their bearish betting) was 57% below the 2016 peak.
NZ Dollar About to Bounce?
Meanwhile the New Zealand dollar dropped even lower this week. Edging below 0.63. Although today the Kiwi is back above that mark.
As overbought as both metals are, the NZ Dollar is equally oversold. So we would expect a bounce before too long. But if (once?) the 0.62 mark is broken there is not a lot of support between there and the 2009 low of 0.50.

What is the Gold Silver Ratio? What is the Ratio Telling Us Now?
You’ve already seen how silver has outperformed gold this week.
The gold to silver ratio has dropped sharply from 28 year highs at 95, to today be sitting at 80.
We wrote the below update only yesterday. But with the sharp rise in silver overnight, the ratio has dropped even lower today. So just a day later we almost need to update the charts!
It’s worth looking at the gold/silver ratio in some detail.
Read on to discover:
- What is the Ratio Telling Us Now?
- How High Could Silver Rise if the Gold/Silver Ratio Falls?
We think this is just the start of what will be a very large reversal in the ratio. And therefore a very large rise in the silver price.
Why New Zealand Won’t Have Any Say in a Global Currency Reset
We’ve spilled plenty of digital ink in these pages discussing the possibility – or maybe we should say the inevitability – of a change in the global monetary system. Perhaps in the form of a currency reset.
This week we read an interesting piece by a Chinese think tank. Published in Chinese state media outlet the Global Times, means this was approved by the Chinese government. It made the claim that the:
World needs to prepare for return to gold standard as Washington disrupts financial order
“…What will “post-dollar era” currencies look like? What currency can replace the status of the dollar?
In fact, this will be a process of continuous trials. It would be hard for the Bretton Woods Conference to succeed in the current era, so the new super currency has to be selected through extensive experimentation.
First of all, digital currencies. Governments in various countries are making efforts in this regard, and market forces have also cultivated various digital currencies like Bitcoin and Libra. But they are far from being universally recognized and trusted by the global markets, and they are also far from winning the support of major economies.
Second, regional currencies including the euro. Politicians around the world actually missed many opportunities after World War II, because world politics seriously disrupted global financial order, but no one would admit it. The result is the weakening status of regional currencies, like the euro.
Then what’s left is the gold standard. After the collapse of the Bretton Woods System, the questioning of the gold standard has never stopped. The gold standard essentially represents a world financial order. When an old financial order faces collapse, it is necessary to create a new financial order. When the US decoupled the value of the dollar from gold, it actually committed to take on the responsibility of world finance, based on which a new financial order was formed. It is this financial order that has allowed the US to enjoy huge development dividends. Now, the US is unwilling to continue assuming and fulfilling such responsibilities for the current world financial order, and Trump has continuously intervened in the operation of the Fed and global financial market order. This development points to the necessity of seeking and building a new financial order, which is the fundamental basis for the re-emergence of the gold standard in the world financial market.
So the gold standard is an effort by the world market and financial system to balance the “Trumpian future.” It means that the US can take its own path and Americans will have the right to look after themselves, but other countries around the world will also have the right to make their own choices.”
So How Would This Global Currency Reset Affect us Down Under?
Will we get to make our “own choices” as the Chinese think tank alludes to?

Your Questions Wanted
Remember, if you’ve got a specific question, be sure to send it in to be in the running for a 1oz silver coin.
As we alluded to in the article above, New Zealand won’t get any say in how the monetary system evolves.
But you can have your own say in how your personal monetary system functions.
Even though gold is at record highs in New Zealand dollars, our bet is there is plenty more to come yet. You’re not too late to build your own “reserves”.
Especially when it comes to silver, we reckon there is even more upside to come.
