Currency concerns and geopolitical tensions are driving  precious metal prices up. Overseas, investors continue to move to gold as the euro continues to slump. Over the weekend, Adm Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made it clear that the US takes their commitment to the security of the Middle East very seriously. The US is “very ready” to counter Iran on nukes.   The Korean tensions had been building for several days, but did find some relief when North Korean backed down their threats to respond to weapons test by South Korea. The world  waits to see what will happen during today’s tests.
