Anyways, the recent spike in the gold market is said to be contributed by many factors and among them, is war. People fear that their assets may be seized and that the currency may become worthless. They see gold as a solid asset which will always buy food or transportation. Thus in times of great uncertainty, particularly when war is feared, the demand for gold rises.
I never thought of it that way, but it sure does make sense! Especially in this day and age.. you guys might want to think to buy gold bullion now and keep it for a seriously rainy day.... or a hurricane for that matter.
Gold might just be your golden ticket to survival!
