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

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.

Guest Gary,

No one can know for sure that Palladium will hit $2000 this year which is in the next six months or so. How do you know there is very little physical stock? Are you able to share the credible source? I accept there may well be supply issues in Palladium but that is very different to very little physical stock. You may be right, I do not not know but you will have to offer an article or a link or something more than just words on this one to support your comment.

The current price action is bearish and downwards. So one could flip your comment and suggest to be careful if you go long!

    • Hi greetings from Singapore & finally someone started a thread on HSI.   😗
    • I am not so advanced like Mercury here but I could at least understand half of what he is talking about. Yes it did trigger me to consider the possibility of the bullish trend pushing price to 30000 levels.
    • Ah! The $64 million (billion, trillion) question! Where's the inflation? I'm afraid I can only offer my own thoughts on that....there are far better qualified people to be had elsewhere. Here are my personal thoughts/threads however.. QE was used (expanded the Fed balance sheet) to purchase US Treasury debt. Elsewhere same reason. It was intended that it would be rolled over as it matured and sold back to the market. Now there's doubt about that or at least some of it. It could just disappear. You're effectively buying your own debt...nice game, nice game....and if you can do that (with one hand on the money press) then you want it as cheaply as possible. If you're effectively the only buyer, you own the market and that itself drives yields lower. Wash,rinse,spin. Throw in some safe haven moments and you get to where we are today. Throughout the whole of the experiment, and that's what it is because no-one knows how this ends (although I expect badly) it became clear that the elites are getting richer...they were the ones with the assets after all. For assets include everything...stocks, property, antiques, paintings, wine etc. Everything Trump has in other words!. Their pay (board level) also got a huge boost in my opinion from performance related share prices due to unprecedented share buy backs - this is on going because credit has never been so cheap. Your pay almost certainly didn't increase. In fact in real terms it went backwards. Lots of studies support that thesis both in US/UK/Europe. The policy is now driving rates well below zero. Just when you thought rates can only go up from here (2016 low) they actually went lower and bonds were and still are the place to be! Wish I had bought Reagan's long term debt. I think this will continue and it links in with my thoughts about Japan the past two decades. Keeping rates below inflation (and they all do) effectively forces you to do your consumer bit and that was the justification/hope/smoke screen, take your pick!. We'll grow our way out of it - scenario 2 a few posts back. The wealth divide is a real concern now and they know it. In consumer led economies, if the consumer had access to that increased money supply and provides it with some velocity (i.e. gets it moving around the economy) THEN you get inflation. You don't have access to it.........yet. Assets are being held up by funny money. Any whiff the central banks (i.e who now ARE the market) will dial back causes immediate stock market roll overs. Draw your own conclusions. The other thought is simply this. Think of deflation as air leaving your tyre. You're pumping like mad to get it back in but however hard you try the tyre is getting flatter! The hole's too big. Deflation wins.....or if you manage to stabilise the pressure then stagnant growth at best. Possibly stagflation 70s style. Get the plaster on and whey, hey! Hyperinflation here we come. Hold gold. Just my penny worth!...and apologies for the length.
