The recent "bull" market with precious metals hasn't just been increasing the value of the two most well known metals, gold & silver. It's also been driving up the price of platinum and palladium, two medals a little more under the radar but still very exciting to watch as they also move on an upward trend. Palladium has increased 97% in the past year, nearly doubling its value in 2009, and outperforming gold, silver, and platinum. Investors bought all precious metals to hedge against a plunging dollar and on concern that government spending to lift economies out of the worst global recession since World War II will spur inflation.
As we start 2010, it looks like further growth in Palladium is locked in, based off of strong, underlying demand and relative scarcity of the metal - annual global supplies total only 7 million ounces. The added importance investors are putting on owning the actual physical metal as opposed to a "house of cards" stock that isn't backed by anything has led to the creation by the SEC of the first-ever Palladium ETF, shares which are physically backed by deposits of the metal. This protects investors from the imperfect "nuances" of a futures-based investment strategy. However, it also leads us to believe that there could be a major increase in Palladium in the future.
