Prices and Charts
NZD Gold Moving Higher
Gold priced in New Zealand dollars has edged up to a new high today. Up over 2% since last week. Gold looks to be consolidating rather than correcting.
This is probably surprising many people (see this weeks feature article for more).
NZD may well be targeting the $2200 level now. This is where the overhead horizontal resistance line (red) and the multi year rising blue trend line coincide.
The odds of a return back to the break out level around $1975 appear to be diminishing.
It’s impossible to say what the price will do in the shorter term. However in the longer term we do look set up for much higher prices ahead. For more on this see: USD Gold Breakout – 6 Year High Above $1400 – What Happens Now?
Silver is the Star This Week
NZD Silver also made a new high this morning. Edging above $25.00 for the first time since late 2017. Silver remains very overbought. But this can continue for a while. We will have to see either a correction or at least a consolidation before long.
Read on below for what our guess is…
The New Zealand dollar is down sharply this week. This has helped boost local precious metal prices. With the price now sitting on the 50 day moving average, the odds point to a bounce higher from here.
Bigger picture. The Kiwi dollar is sitting firmly in a sideways trading pattern between 0.6500 and 0.6950.

Why Gold and Silver Won’t Correct From Here: Two Contrarian Indicators
We get the impression that the majority of people are expecting a fairly decent correction in both gold and silver now.
We have the benefit of being able to read sentiment by looking at who is buying and who is selling. We’ve crunched some numbers that make us start to doubt that narrative.
No guarantees of course. But if you’re currently sitting on the sidelines waiting for gold or silver to pull back, we’d suggest you check this article out.
That pull back may not arrive…

The “Time Price”: Why Gold is Money and Will Continue to be
We have spilt plenty of digital ink looking at various ways of valuing gold over the years. But using time is not something we’ve directly touched on before.

Yes the “Small” NZ Banks Are Still Subject to Bail-In
A client sent us the following email. She was seeking clarification from Co-operative Bank as to whether they were still subject to the RBNZ Open Bank Resolution policy (OBR). A.K.A. – A depositor haircut or bail-in in case of bank failure.
Just in case you were in any doubt that all banks in NZ are impacted by this…
If a financial collapse were to happen, I have heard the term ‘Hair Cut’ used in reference to the type of response we could expect from the Major players (the Big Banks). I believe the term is interpreted this way: “The banks will keep depositors funds”. If I were to transfer my savings to your bank, could this potentially happen or do you have depositors insurance that will allow me within 24 hours, full access to all my funds?
Or better yet, is the Co-operative bank not under all of the same strict regulatory controls as the Big Banks?
Could a repeat of Cyprus happen in NZ and more specifically, at a NZ Co-operative bank in other words?
Thanks in advance.
The Response from her local bank manager…
“Thanks for getting in touch with us. In response to your question; all banks (whether large or small) are regulated by the Reserve Bank. As we are a registered bank in a “haircut” scenario in the event of financial collapse this would be the case.”
