It was less than two weeks ago that we were watching one of the cable news networks, and the panel was discussing what viewers should expect in a war with North Korea since so many of them considered it a sure thing.

For all this reported chaos in the world right now, one would think that the price of gold would be seeing at least a little action, but over the last four months or so, it has merely been bouncing around between $1,200 and $1,300, or a range of less than 8%.

Will the third time be the charm for gold or are we in for just more of the range?
