Prices and Charts
Volatile Week for NZD Gold
It’s been a fairly volatile week for precious metals. There was a big jump higher over the weekend, but then a sharp pullback overnight. As a result gold in NZ dollars is down just under 2% from 7 days ago. Back under both the 50 and 200 day moving averages.
So there is now a higher chance that we could see a further dip down to the next support line at $2500.
NZD Silver Doing Better Than Gold – Up 1%
Meanwhile silver in New Zealand dollars followed gold higher over the weekend. But the jump was bigger. And while silver also pulled back overnight it was not as much as gold. So, unlike gold, silver is actually up close to 1% from 7 days ago.
Although silver is still yet to regain all of the plunge from the flash crash. So it might need to consolidate a bit further around current levels.
NZ Dollar Continues to Strengthen
The New Zealand dollar was up 50 basis points or 3/4 of a percent. But is down a little from highs hit earlier in the week after getting close to overbought. So a further pullback might be in order after such a huge run higher over the past couple of weeks.
We also take a closer look at the Kiwi dollar in this week’s feature article below.

Question of the Month Winner
Congratulations to S.H. who is the winner of our question of the month for August.
A 1oz silver coin is on it’s way to her for her question which proved popular with other people too:
“Would the government be able to confiscate gold I own in NZ for any reason?”
Here was out response in case you missed it last month:

Two Veteran Investors Recommending Gold
Veteran investor and founder of Mobius Capital Partners, Mark Mobius said that investors should look to have 10% of a portfolio in gold as he expects currencies to be devalued following the unprecedented stimulus rolled out to fight the covid pandemic.
At this stage, “10% should be put into physical gold,” said Mobius in an interview to Bloomberg adding that currency devaluation globally is going to be quite significant next year given the incredible amount of money supply that has been printed.
Around the same time David Paulson – the former hedge fund manager who generated $20 billion during the 2009 financial crisis also said that gold is set to go parabolic like it did in the 1970’s…
“Paulson, 65, is increasingly concerned about rising prices, he said in an episode of “Bloomberg Wealth with David Rubenstein.” The rapidly expanding money supply could push inflation rates well above current expectations, he said, and gold, which he’s backed for years, is primed for its moment.”
In answer to the question, “Do you think that gold is a good investment at this price?”, he replied:
“Yeah, we do. We believe that gold does very well in times of inflation. The last time gold went parabolic was in the 1970s, when we had two years of double-digit inflation.
The reason why gold goes parabolic is that basically there’s a very limited amount of investable gold. It’s on the order of several trillion dollars, while the total amount of financial assets is closer to $200 trillion. So as inflation picks up, people try and get out of fixed income. They try and get out of cash. And the logical place to go is gold. But because the amount of money trying to move out of cash and fixed income dwarfs the amount of investable gold, the supply and demand imbalance causes gold to rise.”

While Auckland remains in Level 4 we can continue to take orders and lock in prices for gold and silver. However like last year, dispatch of orders will have to wait until the lockdown is lifted and normal courier deliveries resume. 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.
