  • Silver price: $28.74
  • Platinum price: $1803.60
  • Palladium price: $808.50

COMMENTARY: The stock market is down for the day amid news of unemployment claims rising after the holiday vacation and large developer Merck halting some of their studies having an adverse affect on the market as well. Italy and Spain, both having looked to ease the concern over their own debt fears, as well as an improved economic outlook from U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke looks to have hindered the price of gold for the day. However, platinum and palladium were bolstered by investment demand and a higher auto industry demand, palladium in particular hitting its highest price point since March of 2001.

Gold spot price is down $12.90 – silver is down 84 cents – platinum spot price is up $3.50 – palladium is up 80 cents

With palladium hitting its highest price point, from an investment perspective a couple of items you may want to consider for your portfolio diversification include Pamp Suisse Palladium Bars or Palladium Canadian Maple Leafs.
