COMMENTARY: Gold prices have risen recently on concerns regarding the Fed QE2 and the European debt crisis.Today’s rise was fueled by the tension in North and South Korea. A somewhat overlooked factor also driving up gold prices are the mining strikes going on in Chile and labor problems in South Africa. Labor problems may have been overlooked because of the focus on gold’s relationship to the US Dollar. Supply issue don’t make great news stories, but they will factor into the price of gold. Will silver soon follow?
