The New Zealand Dollar Tops All Currencies, Gold Lags Behind Silver!

  • Silver and Gold increase in value during Monday’s Asian Session. Silver rises more than 2.00%, considerably more than Gold. Will Gold gain momentum during the US trading session?
  • Citi Group advise the price of Gold can potentially rise to $3,000 in the next 12 months. The institution also advises commodity prices are likely to remain high.
  • The New Zealand Dollar is the best performing currency on Monday followed by the Japanese Yen. The Yen loses momentum as the Asian Session comes to an end.
  • Of the NASDAQ’s 20 most influential stocks, only 4 ended Friday’s session in the red. The index ended the session 1.10% high and 0.06% higher in today’s Asian Session.

XAUUSD – Gold Lags Behind Silver, But Where Will Buy Signals Materialize?

The price of Gold fell significantly for 3 consecutive days and a total of more than 5.00%. However, investors want to determine how the price is likely to develop throughout the week. On the 2-hour chart the price is trading below the 50.00 on the RSI and below the 75-Bar EMA. Both these indicate a downward price movement. However, the price is trading at a previous support level and the RSI has risen above 40.00. So, at which point are investors likely to see buy or sell signals?

The strongest signals will be able to be seen if the price witnesses a downward price movement as this will also be in line with the 2-hour chart and not provide conflicting signals. If the price trades below $2,341.30, the price will see an ultra-short-term signal for some bearish price action. If the price trades below $2,338.95, a short-term signal will indicate a slightly larger decline. Bullish signals will be active above $2,345.00 or at the breakout at $2,347.50.


According to Citi group, the price of Gold still has the possibility of reaching as high as $3,000, but would require the Federal Reserve to start adjusting their policy. According to Citi Group, five rate hikes over the next 12 months will put Gold priced at $3,000. However, many economists believe the Federal Reserve will only cut on 1-2 occasion in 2024. Fed officials said the share of goods whose prices were growing by 3–5% or higher is now greater than it should be under normal conditions, and the employment sector remains resistant to the measures taken. However, according to Bostic, a transition to reducing borrowing costs is possible but not earlier than October.

NZDCHF – High Inflation Continues to Support The New Zealand Dollar

The best performing currency of the day is the New Zealand Dollar, while the worst performing is the Swiss Franc.  However, due to the larger spread, which is traditional to this pair, investors hold on for larger price movements. On the 2-hour chart the price of the exchange has continuously traded above the 75-Bar EMA since the 13th May and is trading almost 3.50% higher over the past month.

The upward price movement is largely due to the high inflation in New Zealand and the central banks reluctancy to indicate a rate adjustment in the near future. In addition to this, the Swiss National Bank also is believed to be one of the most bearish central bank globally. New Zealand’s inflation rate is continuing to decline and is not witnessing a slowdown like the US. However, the inflation rate remains at 4.00% significantly higher than Switzerland’s 1.4% inflation rate.
