At times like this, gold and silver typically grab all the attention... and attract all the "safe" money. But there's another metal that could blast past both of these, virtually overnight.
That's because it has unique physical properties for which there is just no substitute - something its biggest consumers lose quite a bit of sleep over.
It's 15 times more rare than platinum... and 30 times more rare than gold.
And, as you'll see in the chart below, it hasn't been this attractive in 13 years.
We're looking at a 70% gain on this one - perhaps more - no matter how far Washington kicks the "debt can" down the road.
The U.S. Federal Reserve was also in the spotlight, and Twitter took center stage once again as we learned of the micro-blogging site's target IPO date.
[Editor's Note: Subscribers of Dr. Kent Moors' free Oil & Energy Investor service received this article Oct. 8.

As we have discussed on several occasions, there is a revolution occurring on the demand side in natural gas. No fewer than five major advances are hitting that will ramp up the requirements for this fuel source.
It's a development every investor should know about because it pushes new names on to the list of today's best investments in natural gas.
Now that it looks like Janet Yellen will succeed Ben Bernanke as chief of the Federal Reserve, investors need to re-think how the Fed under her guidance will affect the markets.
There's a shake-up brewing in the business world. Al Mulally, CEO of a rejuvenated, refocused, and red-hot Ford Motor Company, may be heading over to Microsoft, where CEO Steve Ballmer is retreating under fire. Under Mulally, Ford went from the brink of bankruptcy and irrelevance to one of the the most solid performers on Wall Street. Can Mulally do the same thing for Microsoft and move it back into the "Buy" column? Keith Fitz-Gerald joins FOX Business' Neil Cavuto to tackle this question, along with McDonalds' newest strategy and the effect of the looming government shutdown on Wall Street.
But just when it looked like the Apple bears might be right, the company started to gain back lost ground.
BlackBerry Ltd. (Nasdaq: BBRY) stock suffered a black eye last week, but now a white knight hopes to turn things around for the company.
BBRY plunged 17% Friday after the company announced it's anticipating a quarterly loss of nearly $1 billion, due largely in part to the failure of the new BlackBerry 10 line of phones. The BB10s were supposed to be the shot in the arm the ailing company needed.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Most investors haven't heard of the man you're about to meet. But they'll certainly wish they had...
He's an executive with the storied Fairchild Semiconductor Int. Inc. (NYSE: FCS) - one of the original Silicon Valley chip makers that played an integral role in the computer revolution.
But don't expect to hear him extolling the virtues of semiconductors.
He's working on something bigger now.
In fact, now that I've seen his research firsthand, demand for this rapidly growing technology could be twice as big as I predicted a month ago here in Money Morning.
Last week's best stocks to buy list at Money Morning stemmed from key events from the U.S. Federal Reserve - if you missed it, here's what you need to know...
The first Fed-related headlines came Monday morning when markets reacted to Fed chief frontrunner Larry Summers stepping out of the running to fill Ben Bernanke's shoes.
Focus then shifted to the central bank's two-day policy meeting that ended with the surprise announcement the Fed will continue its market-friendly $85 billion a month bond-buying program.
When it comes to stocks, it's easy to equate size with quality.
But over the past year, smaller has been better, which means you need to be looking for small-cap stocks to buy.
In fact, the market's practically screaming that you should be putting some chips to work in the small-cap arena.
Editor's Note: Bill recommended this little security firm to his Private Briefing readers back in June, when shares traded for $6.10. They closed above $9 a share last week, but Bill thinks there's still a ton of upside here. And thanks to some analyst-induced selling yesterday, you can buy all this growth potential at an even better price...
Since we recommended Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc. (Nasdaq: KTOS) back on June 6, the stock has soared nearly 40%.
And we believe there's more to come.
A lot more.
Founded in 1994, the San Diego-based Kratos is a specialized security-technology company that provides products and services crucial to U.S. national security priorities.
That national security focus is borne out by the company's customer base, which includes the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The company also serves a number of strategic military bases and defense locations throughout the United States.
While the global economy is taking longer than we'd like to land a full recovery, there are retail stocks to buy right now to benefit from better times ahead.
And now - since the stock market is always anticipatory - we're seeing some interesting opportunities in the luxury goods sector.
Inflation can be tough to contend with, yet investors should guard against inflation lest it eat away at their portfolios - which isn't hard to do if they know the best investments to hold when inflation rates rise.
Official interest rates are notoriously unreliable - outright false at times - which can downplay or underestimate the situation. Don't trust the numbers. Make that mistake, and your investments' value can evaporate before your eyes.
Even with shale energy, not every well that's drilled is going to be a major strike. But a select group of companies profit from every single well that's built regardless of how much oil or gas it produces. Without a doubt, these companies are making the most of the U.S. shale boom...
