Gold recently reached its highest percentage gain in five weeks rallying above the $1,200 mark, and Myra Saefong of MarketWatch asks Frank Holmes his thoughts on the movement.

He explains that due to the “DNA of volatility” in the metal, it’s not unusual to see the price fluctuate plus or minus 15 percent.
