Palladium is one of the most searched assets on the IG platform this week

Recommended Posts

One of the most searched assets on the IG platform has been Palladium this week, so I thought I'd just give a run down of a few things which may be useful to help your trading. Some of these are basics for the new trader, but there may be one of two things which you find useful. 

How to trade Palladium and where to research fundamentals

  1. FIND: under the commodities section, or using the search at the top
  2. WATCHLIST: right click on the asset and 'add to watchlist' if you want quicker access to this in the future
  3. NEWS: start your research on Palladium using the 'News' section at the bottom of the chart, or in the News flyout on the left
  4. SWITCH: swapping between spot and futures may be useful if you're going for a longer term view
  5. WORKSPACE: add to workspace to access the chart without using the flyout. Resize as required
  6. BUY/SELL: if you want to trade immediatly, access your deal ticket here

@JamesIG,

Thanks. Palladium is an interesting asset to trade though typical of IG it is showing the following message below:

Closing only: Market unavailable to open

Spot Palladium is a bank / LP quoted price, and their spreads are very very wide at the moment due to recent volatility. It's actually cheaper to trade the future so we set the Spot to closing only. This should save money for clients. 

At the time of writing Spot has a spread of 7 points and you then pay overnight funding.
At the time of writing Futures have a 2 point spread and you don't pay overnight funding. 

Hope this clarifies.

That's interesting and worth knowing, I wonder how often that situation occurs, presumably more likely on less traded assets.

    • Hi, no sb and cfd are the same but for taxation category purposes, the underlying market for both is the cfd market which the IG market tracks. If it was as you say it would beg the question who were you betting against? IG? IG are adamant they don't take the other side of client's bets and if they did and the regulator was to find out IG's long spell as a leading broker could be at an end. So their position is that they match trades in house and any over flow is hedged, so shorts may well turn out to be unborrowable.  
    • If it's your first foray into crypto, just buy bitcoin. Set aside an amount each month you can afford and buy bitcoin. Don't even bother looking at the price. DCA each month, stick it on a Trezor and forget it. Hopefully in a few years you'll have enough to retire. Everyone should have at least 5% of btc in their portfolio imho. Alternatively, if you're looking to set up a crypto "sh1tcoin" portfolio be prepared to dive in, deep, into research. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Tezos, Monero etc and these don't even touch on DeFi, Security Tokens, Lending, Staking etc. Have something like this: 40-60% Bitcoin (low risk - for crypto anyway) 30% Ethereum, Cardano, Tezos etc (Large Cap alt coins with medium risk) 15% Higher risk alt coins but higher reward (this is where your research comes in to find legit projects) 5% Small Cap coins, High leverage, full degenerate margin trading. Huge reward if you win but highly risky and if you lose all that 5% who cares? Your Bitcoin holdings should make up for the loss. But if it goes 10x then holy momma. p.s IMHO stay away from the likes of Ripple, Tron and Bitcoin SV.
