Gold peaked at $1,518.70/oz. Rare 1896-dated Lee-Enfield cavalry carbine

Here are the latest news items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets. We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. Most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor, JWR. Today, we look at the recent gold peak. (See the Precious Metals section.)

Precious Metals:

Explosion in Coronavirus Cases Sends Gold to 10-Day High. Here are the article’s opening bullet points:

  • “Gold peaked at $1,518.70/oz. Thursday and is on track for its highest settlement in ten days.
  • Alarmed by the recent spike in coronavirus infections, investors piled into bullion and other haven assets to mitigate risk.
  • U.S. consumer-price growth was muted in January but above trend compared with a year ago.”

Tangibles Investing:

I’m pleased to announce that a dozen of the pre-1899 antique guns that I had listed as “arriving soon” have indeed arrived and are now available at Elk Creek Company. These include:  Two 6.5×55 Swedish Mauser carbines, two Chilean (Ludwig Loewe) Mauser sporters, a truly minty Valmet M39 Finnish Mosin-Nagant on a Czarist era receiver, a minty Swiss M1896/11 Schmidt-Rubin target rifle, a takedown Winchester Model 1894 .30-30, a Remington #4 Rolling Block Takedown .22 Long Rifle, a Remington Rolling Block 20 gauge conversion, a L.C. Smith Model O in 12 gauge, and a rare 1896-dated Lee-Enfield cavalry carbine. Be sure to get your order in before my planned tour in the month of March, when I go gather more inventory.  (During my travel hiatus, I won’t be shipping any orders.)
