Special Edition: Happy 2018!

Gold and Palladium in 2018

The price of Gold taking advantage of a weaker dollar this morning as the dollar index trades at a year over year low by as much as 14 percent. The dollar index traded over night to a low of 91.75 where last year at this time we were trading at the 103 handle.

The question on most traders’ minds is, will the dollar continue to fall?, because the weaker dollar seems to be the only catalyst to higher Gold prices at this time.

And chatter from any Fed member about how many rate hikes are expected in 2018 could put the brakes on this continued Gold rally.

With an abundance of commercial Silver bars available, the price of Silver struggling to reach positive territory today..

Platinum / Palladium ratio continues to widen as concerns of a continuing tight supply of Palladium is on the minds of many car company executives as higher Palladium prices adds to the cost of new vehicles. Case in point, year over year Palladium is up over 59 percent.

March Palladium currently trading at $1,077.30 and as one PGM trader put it, “The Palladium chart is starting to look like a Bitcoin chart for 2017.”

Have a wonderful Tuesday.
