Typically a haven for investors in times of uncertainty, this week’s uncertainty in the Mid East and North Africa has certainly rewarded those with gold in their portfolios.

Gold has jumped 6% during February and is over $44,860 / kilo this first week of March, breaking the previous record high set in December of 2010.

On the New York Comex exchange, the price of gold reached $1,434.40, a record for that market, before pulling back slightly.

Meanwhile oil prices, which have also been on the up since unrest broke out in North Africa and the Middle East, rose again on Tuesday.
