COMMENTARY: Platinum and palladium are not nearly as often in the news as gold and silver, but both metals have been on the rise in the past six months. Are these metals near their highs or are they in fact creating a new normal? Both of these metals are affected by supply constraints, that do not appear likely to disappear soon. Last Friday, the Nymex even raised their margin calls for palladium futures, which would indicate they see today’s prices as a base line.
