NZD Gold Edging Higher

Gold in NZ Dollars edged about 1% higher this week. It looks to have found support around the previous all time high set back in 2011 (see the red horizontal line in the chart below).

There is still a chance we could see a move back down towards the 50 day moving average (MA) line (blue wiggly line). But currently gold is looking quite strong so that can’t be counted upon.

Silver Consolidating After Breakout

Silver is slightly higher than last week. It broke out from the bullish flag or pennant formation over the holiday break. Over the past couple of weeks silver has pulled back and is retesting the upper trend line in the pennant formation as would be expected after a break out. The RSI is back in neutral territory, so we could just see silver consolidate around these levels.

NZ Dollar May Be About to Rise Again

Meanwhile the New Zealand Dollar looks to have found support at the 0.6600 level. The 50 day MA has crossed above the 200 day MA. This is often indicative of a change to a rising trend in the intermediate term at least. So as we suggest in our 2020 guesses we may see the NZ dollar strengthen a little over 2020. However, as we outlined in last week’s feature post, we’d still say the gains in gold and silver are likely to be greater than any gains in the Kiwi dollar.

Yesterday we received a question “why did gold rise in 2019?” We’ve yet to answer that directly. However, as it happens we’d just written a post that likely contains the answers to this question.

So if you’re thinking of buying, here’s a number of reasons that may help convince you…

Best Time to Buy Gold in 2020?

The chart below gives us a good idea as to when the best time to buy gold in 2020 is…

Why is that?

Because in each of the last 6 years, the NZD gold price finished the year higher than it started. Therefore, generally speaking if you bought gold in January the price is usually higher by the end of the year.

So if you’re sitting on the fence trying to determine the short term moves in gold and silver, you may be better off just buying. With recent history showing that the price will likely be higher by year end.

But please do get in touch if you have any queries.
