Prices and Charts
Sharp Drop Today. Time to Buy the Dip
Gold priced in NZ dollars took a sharp fall today. Now down 1.5% on last week and well below the 200 day moving average. The price is now not too far above the $1800 mark, which has been the lower limit for all of 2018.
With the RSI now almost in overbought territory, it would not surprise us for this to be quite a short sharp fall. We could see the price bounce back quite quickly.
So this fall could be a great chance to buy the dip. You’ll be buying close to the lows we’ve seen so far in 2018.
NZD silver by contrast is still a way above the 2018 lows around $22.25 – despite falling 2.5% this week. There is of course a chance we could still see those low $22 levels reached. That would put the price near the uptrend line of the wedge formation. But we wouldn’t bet too heavily on it.
If you are yet to own any silver then right here would be a great place to start!
Kiwi Dollar Locked in Downtrend
The Kiwi dollar remains locked in a clear downtrend. However right now it is still below the 50 day MA and so could bounce a bit higher yet.

Does Gold Seasonality Affect the NZ Dollar Gold Price?
With prices falling today, it is timely that we have updated an old article. As the July/August period is often when the lows for the year for gold and silver are recorded.
See whether this seasonality holds true for gold when priced in NZ dollars. We also look at silver where the trend is not so strong in recent years.
NZX50 Near Highs But This Indicator Says the NZ Economy is Slowing Sharply
The NZ sharemarket has continued powering higher this year. This is despite various very negative business confidence surveys since we had the change in government. Given the sharemarket is meant to be forward looking, why is this?
Mark Lister, head of private wealth research at Craigs Investment Partners reckons:
“Prospects for exporters have improved further in recent months, with the currency falling sharply against all major trading partners.
That’s a big positive for listed companies, many of which have substantial international operations. Unlike years gone by, it’s easy to find quality businesses on our sharemarket where more than half of revenues come from outside New Zealand.
These companies will be less concerned about slowing domestic growth. In fact, if it leads to a lower NZ dollar some will welcome it.
Another reason for the strength of our market is the ongoing attraction of high dividend paying shares. The higher proportion of utilities, infrastructure and property companies means the average dividend yield is about five percent per annum, higher in many cases.”
However he finishes up by saying:
“While things are buoyant for now, the true test will come during the corporate reporting season in August. That’s when we’ll find out if lower business confidence is a reflection of the real risk to share prices – falling profits.”
Well, just out this week was an indicator that isn’t based upon confidence surveys but actual numbers and it is showing a marked slow down.
