Will Global Unrest Slash Your Profits?

Email

Riots in Spain and protesters in Greece are wreaking havoc in those countries, causing concern that violence could spread throughout Europe. There is also heightened speculation and fear over the effects of aggressive political messages from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

So as an investor what should you do with the increasing global unrest?

Money Morning's Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald appeared on Fox Business' "Varney & Co." program today to analyze Europe's mess, the threat Iran poses to the world, and the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

Host Stuart Varney asked Fitz-Gerald how riot scenes from Europe affect his investment moves.

"There are three things that come to mind when I see violence on the streets of Spain," said Fitz-Gerald. "I think is it going to spread to Italy, for example, or is it next up in France? Are we going to see a further run in Treasuries? Will it strengthen the dollar?"

Watch the entire video below to hear Fitz-Gerald explain how investors should weigh the global and domestic issues to prepare for what's next.

    If you have some gold and silver investments, you've seen precious metals go up and down before. The "money men" on the internet tell us it's all interaction with the dollar, right? For safety's sake, rather than income enhancement. I'd keep them. If there's really a fiscal cliff ahead of us on 1/1/13, your precious metals could make the difference in how you survive a predicted financial catastrophe. I'm not very good at money matters either, but it makes sense to protect yourself.

    I'd hold on to the gold and silver and continue to buy more! I think you'll be happy you did this time next year. I've heard that precious metals could soar 10 to 20 times their current price in US dollars in the near future. Wouldn't would be nice to pay off your $120,000.00 mortgage with 400oz of silver? :)
