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.
