These 5 gold stocks are rising the most on the gold rally

By James Dennin for Kapitall.

It's being called a " perfect storm" for gold prices. 

Friday morning The Pentagon announced that airstrikes had been authorized on ISIS in Iraq and tensions escalated further between the United States and Russia. 

The violence abroad has sent gold to a three week high as investors seek the "safe-haven asset," for fear of what escalation of the conflict would do to the American recovery. 

We decided to screen gold stocks to see who was driving the rally the most by looking at the stock prices now relative to their  20-day, 50-day and 200-day simple moving averages (SMA). 

We capped our screen at stocks at least 15% above their SMA 200, but also above the price for their 20 and 50 day moving averages as well. This screen left us with 5 companies on our list. 

Are you more likely to buy gold when there is unrest abroad? Use the list below to begin your analysis.
