Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!

Oil prices surged and extended gains after touching their highest levels in more than three years as geopolitical concerns and concerns of war in the Middle East rose.

Brent crude, the international benchmark, was up 1 per cent to over $71.68 per barrel. West Texas Intermediate, the US benchmark, was 1.3 per cent lower to $66.37.

Spot gold was up 0.8 per cent to $1,349.60 an ounce. Spot silver rose just 0.2% to $16.67/oz. Platinum and palladium were both 0.4% higher.
