Gold Settles $12.90 Higher.... ($1414.00)

Today's Gold session covered a $21.30 choppy range as heightened tensions in Libya and the Middle-east continue to send investors into the precious metals as a safe haven alternative investment. The demonstrators throughout the African and Middle-east are threatening the supply of Crude oil and ultimately are causing oil prices to threaten the $100.00 per barrel level.... Higher Crude prices are inflationary and would be bullish for both Gold and Silver.....The Gold should continue to be supported by these geo-political tensions..... Libya is a OPEC member and produces 1.6 million barrels of oil a day... Silver is continuing to impress as well as the volume has increased dramatically during this geo-political rally.... The cheaper price in comparison to Gold has attracted the both large and small investors who are looking for more bang for their buck.
