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!

    • How do I switch my account from CFD trading to share trading?
    • That USDJPY turn looks to be confirmed with a break of a potential ending channel in confluence with the Fib 50% and failed retest of the previous Pennant formation.  A solid bearish move on the last two daily candles of the week in line with a late stocks drop is boding well for a sustained medium term bearish phase for this pair.  This may be at odds with other pairs for a few days or so but I expect USD to turn bearish sometime next week, in which case I see this pair dropping hard, which would be in line with the EWT set up of a wave 3 down.  A continued period of stocks weakness would add to the momentum on this pair.
    • Looks like we are getting that relief rallyvon Gold and Silver, which is in line with my A-B-C retrace bearish move road map.  If this continues according to the road map then the current rally is a wave B.  When it concludes there will be a strong wave C down and this is the point to Short if the mood take you.  This is coinciding with both a short term rally on USD (DX) and a late bearish move on stock indices on Friday.  I expect the bearish stocks move to continue for a bit, especially on non US large caps to complete their wave Bs.  We may see a correlation conclusion of these wave Bs between stocks and precious metals.  I also think USD DX will rally a bit further, with GBPUSD in particular putting in a strongish bear move in a 1-2 retrace.  All the main USD pairs except with the Yen are likely to be bearish vs USD.
