Weaker NZ Dollar holding gold and silver up

Gold Survival Gold Article Updates:

Sep. 12, 2014

As we pondered last week, gold and silver have indeed fallen further this week.

US Dollar gold last week was $1261.68. Now down $20.93 or 1.65% since then to $1240.75.

While by contrast NZD gold last week was $1519 and is down 70 cents or just 0.04% to $1518.30 care of the weakening NZ dollar. It has fallen from 0.8306 to 0.8172. Quite a tumble.

Silver in US Dollars is down 34 cents or down 1.78% to $18.73 from a week ago.

Meanwhile NZ silver is down just 4 cents or 0.17% to $22.91.

So as suspected the weaker kiwi has negated nearly all of the fall that has taken place. And odds are it will fall a little further at least yet.

NZ Dollar


So tough to guess what will happen from here. Both metals in US dollars are now into oversold areas so a bounce higher is likely. But neither are looking particularly strong here either.

However the trend also seems to be down at the moment for the NZ dollar. So we may not see new lows here for the metals in local currency.


Report From England

As we mentioned last week your editor is now in Europe for 6 weeks. Having been briefly in London we are now in beautiful Somerset. But our wifi is playing up where we’re staying so today will be brief and make sure this actually gets to you.

The news here is (apart from royal babies) all about the Scottish independence vote. No doubt you’ve seen the speculation over the likes of how much of the UK’s 310 tonne gold reserves the Scots might have claim to. 

But given the Scots seem to receive more in taxes than they pay as part of the UK, they might want some gold – unless they are intending to tighten the purse strings. 

Now Cameron & Co seem to be prepared to bribe them to stay by letting them have even more. Although the rest of the UK don’t seem to get a vote on how much they give up to have the Scots stay. It will be very interesting to see which way it goes.

Also of note in this part of the world is the ever falling bond rates. This week the ECB has made the rate they “pay” banks for “excess deposits” stored with them even more negative – now at -0.2%. That is the banks pay the ECB to keep excess reserves with the,. While crazily Irish and French bond yields have actually gone negative. So you are actually paying these (broke) governments if you want to own their bonds. Why?

Just another sign that the world is slipping into deflation. Money is moving into what are perceived safe havens.

Although you wouldn’t notice in and around Central London. Things were bustling. Lots of Eastern Europeans working in London. But lots of Spanish and Italians there as tourists it seemed to us. Thought they were all meant to be broke?


Dubai – Visa Gold Coin 

We also stopped briefly in the phenomenal Dubai on the way here. That place is just out of this world, although a much better place to visit than to live – having to spend a quarter of the year in air conditioning due to the heat would not be for us. On our return we’ll be there for longer so will check out the gold markets and report back. 

We did notice this ad in the newspaper while there though. Along with the Gold Vending Machines in the biggest shopping mall in the world – Dubai Mall – it was a sign of how much more gold is valued there than the west.

Visa Gold Coin


Even when applying for a credit card you still get a chance to win some gold! Can’t see that offer happening in NZ any time soon.

We’ll be back with more from Europe in the coming weeks.

In the meantime we’ll also be watching closely what the metals do from here. As we said last week, keep a close eye on what the NZ dollar does as we may not get too much of an opportunity to buy gold or silver at their lows if the downtrend of the dollar continues to cancel out the dips in gold and silver.

Let us know if you have a price level you want to buy at and we can notify you when it’s reached. Just reply to this email.
