The Middle East continues to be a tinderbox ready to explode and this is driving stock futures down and precious metal prices up. The price of gold went above $1400 for the first time in 7 weeks. Silver has advanced to its most expensive ratio to gold in 13 years. One ounce of gold is currently around 42X the price of one ounce of silver. Historically, one ounce of gold is more like 57X the price of one ounce of silver.

Investors are flocking to the safety that only physical precious metals can provide. A real asset you can hold in your hand and not just a piece of paper. There is a report today that there is a rising fear of a catastrophic crash due to a lack of trust in financial market and worries of yet another “flash crash”.
