    Feel sorry for the average investor reading nonsense like this.
    You should look at CNBC FastMoney if you want to see how bad popular finance media can get.

    I have never invested in anything, but then I found cryptocurrency an entertaining thing. I started to invest just for fun to see how it will work and I embraced the concept and technology. At the moment, I am in crypto not only because of lucrative profit it can bring, though partially it’s also a reason. I am a true believer of the future cryptocurrency’s mainstream. So I’m a long-term investor. I don’t cash out my coins and regularly deposit a small amount of money to buy more via cex. The low price is depressing for those who come in crypto for a quick-get-rich purpose, for me, it doesn’t matter because I plan not to touch my coins for at least 15-20 years.

    If your'e gonna be in crypto, then this is a valid reason.

    Have you seen the video I posted at the top of the page? S&P 500 is hitting the 62% retracement fwiw.

    Word on the street is that NZ swap rates (benchmark market interest rates) are at an all time low. Last year, it was a widely held view that interest rates were going to go up.

    What is the likelihood that the capital gains tax gets implemented and will this affect kiwisaver?

    We already have a capital gains tax

    What is the likelihood you do your own research?

    I thought it's a fair question he/she is asking.

    Afaik it's supposed to only effect those who sell within a certain amount of time after purchasing a investment property and that first home buyers don't have to worry, Also selling your family home is exempt too (so my dad tells me).

    As for kiwi saver i think the banks have more info on that in their help pages as to what you are entitled to and what fee's maybe charged. (I'm not sure if different providers have different rules is all)

    The tax you pay depends on four things
    Your intent when you purchased.
    Your history of buying and selling.
    Whether you're in or associated with the property industry.
    Whether you buy and sell a property within five years (two years if the property was purchased on or after 1 October 2015 through to 28 March 2018 inclusive).

    Exclusions to the bright-line test
    There are three exclusions to the bright-line test:

    It's your family/main home.
    You inherited the property.
    You're the executor or administrator of a deceased estate

    What does that have to do with the possible implementation?

    "The Government has not committed to following through on the recommendation and says, if it did, any changes would be implemented after the next election so it could effectively go to a public vote."

    That's not really a capital gains tax and it'd be one of the most underpaid taxes in the country next to a trackless tram levy.

    Underpayment is only a factor of how much money the IRD is allocated for enforcement. For every $1 spent the IRD gets $8.31 back in recovered Tax.

    So i'd argue the problem is two fold, the IRD doesn't have enough resources to enforce the tax laws we currently have, and there is a capital gains tax, but the two or five year bright line test is arguably too narrow

    All the cool kids are issuing green bonds now. Out today https://www.argosy.co.nz/greenbondoffer/

    Contact Energy is in the middle of a green bond issue too https://www.nzx.com/announcements/330689

    Contact Energy is an interesting proposition.

    For the last 10 years their overseas owners have used them as a cash cow with the most recent being Origin Energy in Australia stripping them of assets and selling them off in search of the dividends. The most recent was Contact (independtly) shedding their natural gas storage and trading functions to First Gas.

    What does this mean for the future? They are in the process of building a team that is in charge of the long term vision of Contact Energy and answering the question of "What next?" With Meridian Energy and Mercury (through ownership in Tilt) expanding into Australia and Trustpower and Genesis expanding their offerings to include digital, Contact Energy has largely done nothing. Looking forward I'm not sure what is next, but they are someone interesting to watch.

    From a dividend perspective, the gravy train with Contact is well and truly over.

    (or at least that is my take)
