May be down to expected Iranian strikes on Israel/Israeli embassies and wider war in Middle East.

possibnle but I can't see Iran hitting back at Israel in a big way anytime soon.
Netanyahu will eventually be forced out, Spain will recognise the state of Palestine in a few months, most EU countries will follow suite, Charles Michel, the President of the EU Council has said something along those lines. Hamas and Iran will then de facto win the war. There is no reason why Iran would hit back directly at Israel before and destroy itself in the process.

Perhaps.
Main reason is the unfettered printing of currency by all major central banks and governments.
The price of gold is reflecting the diminishing purchasing power of dollars/stirling/euro's etc.
Too late to buy? It may go down a bit but, unlike the currency it's quoted in, it will NEVER go to zero.

Well..... You may be right. On the other hand, I was one of the many who were saying in February 2022 that Putin would never be mad enough to invade Ukraine, but he did.

Well - it is all kicking off now.

Netanyahu is mad enough to go nuclear.

Unfortunately, we don't have level heads in charge of a surprising number of countries these days.

Iran launched more than 300 drones and missiles 1500 miles away. The number and range clearly shows how foolish Netanyahu is to start a new front.

Especially since he is dependent on massive arms supplies from the USA. Biden is no fan of his. Neither is about half of the Israeli public. Netanyahu's premiership is dependent on support from some raving extremist settler party. Many blame him for the fact that the vile attacks on October 7th were able to succeed. Large numbers of the IDF were in the West Bank protecting the very provocative settlers. This meant that when the Hamas incursion started, there were no adequate forces to oppose them anywhere near.

While I would like to see Hamas exterminated to the last man, Netanyahu's sanctioning of an excessively brutal approach to civilians is terrible and the whole world, including friends of Israel sees it.

Expect your fuel prices and all fuel dependent commodities to rise steeply in price. Inflation will take off again. That is the best outcome and is already written into the story before Netanyahu even responds. If he does what I think he might, the results will rock the world.

EDIT:
Re oil supply and price - remember that the nasty Iranian regime knows it can strangle world oil supplies since about half the world's oil flows right past their back door on the Straights of Hormuz. Why wouldn't they interfere with that when further grief comes their way. Keep your bikes charged up. You might not be able to drive so much in the car pretty soon.

"For every 1C rise in average temperature, the atmosphere can hold about 7% more moisture."
The BBC have that completely long. When the temperature rises, the moisture is less likely to condense into rain, which is why it can hold more moisture without raining. If it raining more, it's either because the temperature is lower or the humidity is higher. That article is j7st more fake BBC propaganda.

A rise in temperature increases evaporation, that we can all agree. Water in the clouds will have all to come down, so a rise in temperature leads to heavier rainfall.

No it doesn't. A rise in temperature makes less rainfall because the moisture stays in the air. Didn't you wonder why it doesn't rain in the desert?
