Platinum And Palladium Set To Surge As Gold Breaks Higher / Commodities / Platinum

By: Chris_Vermeulen

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Gold will target the $2,250 level before stalling and attempting another upside price rally targeting $2,500 or higher.
  • Silver will target the $33 price level when the current upside move builds enough momentum, then target $38 or higher.
  • Our next upside price target for platinum is $1,410, representing a +52.4% upside price target.
  • Palladium bottom in March 2020 was near $1,357. We expect a new upside price target for Palladium near $3,663 once it has broken out past current resistance levels.

If you have been following my research for a while, you are already aware of past research posts suggesting Gold and Silver will advance in multiple upside price legs over the next 90+ days. Gold will target the $2,250 level before stalling and attempting another upside price rally targeting $2,500 or higher.  Silver will target the $33 price level when the current upside move builds enough momentum, then target $38 or higher.

Platinum Tremd Forecast to Follow Gold Price Higher / Commodities / Platinum

By: Chris_Vermeulen

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Platinum may be setting up in a technical pattern that is similar to the end of 2001/early 2002.
  • Platinum could rally more than 300%, somewhere near $3,450 or higher.
  • This might push Gold above $7,500 an ounce and may push silver somewhere north of $125 per ounce.
  • Rally hinges on platinum breaking out above $1,050.50.

Platinum may be setting up in a technical pattern that is similar to the end of 2001/early 2002.  At that time, Gold had already begun to rally above $340 and Platinum had rallied to levels above $600.  Then, while Gold continued to rally, Platinum contracted to price levels near $400 on diminishing volume.  Once that contraction was complete, Platinum began and upside price move with stronger volume levels which lasted almost seven years – reaching a peak above $2,300.  Could the same setup be happening right now?

The Case for a Platinum-Plated Metals Portfolio / Commodities / Platinum

By: MoneyMetals

Do precious metals still represent good value?

With gold just coming off a new all-time high above $2,000/oz and silver having more than doubled off its March bottom, some investors may be wary of entering these markets right now.

However, when adjusted for inflation, when measured against the stock market, or when compared to total money supply, a strong case can be made that gold is not yet overvalued – and that silver remains undervalued.

Investors who are seeking an even more deeply undervalued opportunity within the metals space should take a look at platinum.

The Platinum Breakout & Bull Market of 2020 / Commodities / Platinum

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Platinum has setup into a longer-term FLAG formation and has recently broken the APEX of this FLAG.  The long term potential for Platinum, in conjunction with the advance in Rhodium, Palladium, Gold, and Silver, is a new Bullish Price Trend.

Our researchers believe Platinum must move above $1200 for this new Bullish trend to anchor a “Breakout Base” formation.  The current investment environment suggests a new metals rally is setting up.  Fear is starting to take hold of the markets and industrial and manufacturing demands are still driving prices and supply demands higher and higher.  As investors pile into the metals as a form of safety, we expect Platinum to rally above $1200 within the next 4 to 6+ months and begin a much broader rally to levels above $1600 overtime.

Platinum Breaks $1000 On Big Rally - What's Next Forecast / Commodities / Platinum

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Certain precious metals, Gold, Silver, and Platinum, have shown moderate upside price trending over the past 20+ months while Rhodium and Palladium have skyrocketed higher.  These more precious metals, Rhodium and Palladium, have many industrial and consumer uses.  Rhodium is used in electronics and plating and Palladium is used in a variety of consumer products from Automobiles to Medical Devices.

Still, the rally in Rhodium (over 300%) and Palladium (over 70%) over the past 12 months has been more than impressive.  Whey are we not seeing a similar rally in Gold, Silver, and Platinum yet?

Platinum Setting Up For A Big Price Anomaly / Commodities / Platinum

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Our clients and followers have been following our incredible research and market calls regarding Gold and Silver with intense focus.  We issued a research post in October 2018 that suggested Gold would rocket higher from a base level below $1300 to an initial target near $1450 almost 9 months ago. 

As of this week, Gold has reached a high of $1442.90 only $7.10 away from our predicted target level.  This has been an absolutely incredible move in Gold and we could not be more pleased with the outcome for our clients, followers, and anyone paying attention to our research posts.

Additionally, many of our clients have been asking us to share our predictive modeling research for Platinum, which has been basing near recent lows recently.  We decided to share our research with everyone regarding the information our proprietary predictive modeling tools are suggesting.

Will Platinum Be the Precious Metal Leader? / Commodities / Platinum

By: The_Gold_Report

Platinum, after making what appears to be a wash-out low in August 2018, now looks poised to be a precious metal leader, writes fund manager John Newell at Fieldhouse Capital Management.

What is Platinum:

Platinum is a precious transition metal that has the chemical symbol Pt and an atomic number of 78 on the periodic table. Platinum is grayish white in color and is often mistaken for silver. Platinum is derived from the Spanish word, platina, which translates to "small silver." Once considered a nuisance mineral, it was often discarded by early miners. Platinum is thirty times rarer than gold, with annual production of 6 million ounces per year, compared to ~100 million p/a ounces of gold, and 850 million ounces p/a of silver.

A Great Day for Metals as Platinum Price Breaks Out / Commodities / Platinum

By: The_Gold_Report

Technical analyst Clive Maund tracks movements in the platinum, gold and silver markets.

It was a very good day for the metals Friday, as they rose sharply in response to the dollar going into reverse after a sizable run-up. A very significant development was that platinum broke out of its Head-and-Shoulders bottom on strong volume, a move which we had expected that marks the start of a bull market. Copper, gold and silver also rose with silver having a particularly strong day, and although copper and silver have yet to break out of their Head-and-Shoulders bottom patterns, the breakout by platinum is a sign that they will follow suit and break out soon. We can see the breakout by platinum out of its fine Head-and-Shoulders bottom on its latest 6-month chart below.

Tale of Two Metals: One WAY More Valuable Than Gold, The Other Historically Undervalued / Commodities / Platinum

Gold is the metal of kings, the ultimate money, an eternal store of value, an untarnishable embodiment of beauty. Gold is all those things. But it is not the most valuable metal you can own on a cost-per-ounce basis.

Often, platinum commands a higher price than gold. Lately, platinum has traded at an abnormally large discount to the yellow metal.

Platinum Price Cycles Predict Big Upside Move / Commodities / Platinum

By: Chris_Vermeulen

I wanted to take a moment to alert everyone to a price cycle setup that may turn out to be one of the most dramatic price moves we've seen since 2008. The metals markets have recently made some news by breaking to new recent price highs. This price move prompted a number of major firms to announce new bullish directional forecasts for gold with predictions of $2500 to $3000 price levels in the near future. These future price predictions led me to consider what it would take for metals to rally more than 30% from current levels – and the answer became clear to me.

Platinum lost its crown to gold in 2015. It was overtaken by the other Platinum Group metals (PGM) metals in recent weeks.

Will the Fuel Cells Vehicles Save Platinum and Palladium? / Commodities / Platinum

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Although everyone agrees that the electric revolution is looming, there is no consensus about the pace and the detailed form of the upcoming shifts in the automotive industry. In particular, some miners and analysts believe that fuel cell cars will spur or at least support the demand for platinum and palladium. For example, the world’s three largest platinum producers (Anglo American Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin) invested in projects related to fuel cell technologies. Indeed, the white metal is used in catalysts in fuel cells vehicles, where power comes from combining hydrogen and oxygen over a platinum catalyst. The game is definitely worth the candle: today’s fuel cell cars need a full ounce of platinum versus a 2-4 grams PGM loading for the average gasoline or diesel vehicle.

Everyone has probably heard about the upcoming electric car revolution whose vanguard is Tesla Motors led by Elon Musk. The electric car is actually nothing new – the first vehicles were produced as long ago as in the 1880s. However, the mass production of cheaper gasoline vehicles triggered by Henry Ford put electric cars into limbo for decades. But this can change quickly thanks to the rapidly falling costs.

Will the Death of Diesel Cars Ruin Platinum? / Commodities / Platinum

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The gloomy future of the diesel vehicles is commonly known. However, what does it really mean? And how could the demise of diesel technology impact the precious metals market?

The 1970s oil crisis and accelerating inflation made diesel-powered cars popular, especially in Europe where gasoline prices were always higher than in the U.S. The new technology was considered as more efficient and less polluting, as diesel cars produce less carbon dioxide than gasoline cars (thanks to better mileage). Hence, policy makers started to support diesel and the market share of diesel cars went from 14 percent in 1990 to 50 percent in 2016, as the chart below shows.

The Platinum Supply Shock / Commodities / Platinum

Even investors who typically eschew precious metals have been hard-pressed to ignore the platinum industry this year. The longest strike in South African history paired with surging Asian demand is set to push the metal back into a physical deficit in 2014 - and could have repercussions for years to come. While gold remains the most conservative choice for saving, the "industrial precious metal" platinum is a compelling investment for those, like me, who are bullish on global net economic growth.

Dave Forest: How to Play the Looming Platinum Supply Crisis / Commodities / Platinum

By: Metals_Report

South Africa, platinum mining giant, is about to fall off the investment map, says Dave Forest of Pierce Points. Until the country sorts out its labor politics, there is a real need to establish alternative sources of platinum group metals, vanadium and manganese. In other words, while it's a bad time to be a miner in South Africa, it's a good time to hold in-ground reserves. In this interview with The Metals Report, Forest names deposits in the Americas and elsewhere in Africa with the potential to meet global platinum needs. But he's choosing carefully, because even in times of scarcity, Forest argues, it just won't do to develop anything other than the best, most economic mining projects.

Platinum and Palladium: A Fundamental Shift / Commodities / Platinum

By: Jeff_Clark

Platinum is a precious metal, as is palladium, though to a lesser degree. However, like silver, both are also industrial metals. Unlike silver, it's their industrial use that is the primary price driver for both platinum and palladium – and that use is undergoing a fundamental shift.

The largest source of demand for platinum and palladium is the automotive industry, for use in autocatalysts. In turn, the fortunes of the auto industry are sensitive to the health of the world's major economies. We've been bearish on platinum-group metals for years, primarily because we weren't convinced a healthy – much less roaring – world economy could be sustained when so many governments continue spending beyond their means.

Look for a major breakout of the platinum to gold ratio at 104. Platinum (PPLT) is about to break into new 52 week highs as demand increases due to the economic rebound in Asia, while at the same time supply is under major pressure.

Platinum and gold have been playing a game of tag, and this week, platinum took the lead again regaining its rightful position up front, but for how long?

Looking back at history, platinum has been the front runner with an average $200 to $400 premium to gold. At times the difference was much greater. Before the 2008 Lehman Brothers crash, platinum was trading at more than $2,270 per ounce while gold was trading under $990 an ounce. The prices as of close of this week's issue were $1,686.50 for gold and $1,694.30 for platinum.

In October of last year, we published a platinum-market overview in the Casey International Speculator and concluded by saying: "We recommend avoiding South Africa, and in this context it means staying away from platinum producers located there. If the energy situation spins out of control, miners' strikes continue, and the local trouble puts an indefinite halt to a significant portion of platinum production, some speculative opportunities may appear in the physical-metal market or platinum-backed investment tools. If we see signs of that happening, we may speculate on the results."

Platinum’s Upside Potential / Commodities / Platinum

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are certain dogmas held sacrosanct by precious metals investors and one of them is that platinum is supposed to be more expensive than gold. That’s just the way it is. Quite a few eyebrows lifted and jaws dropped last fall when the yellow metals price overtook that of platinum. The historic switch took place on Sept. 2nd when Comex gold futures settled at $1,875.25 per troy ounce, just above platinum’s closing price of $1,873 per ounce. When you consider the price history of the two precious metals—platinum has traded at a $200 to $400 premium to gold—the reversal was astounding. Just to give you a better idea, before the 2008 Lehman Brothers crash, platinum was trading at more than $2,270 per ounce while gold was trading under $990 an ounce.

Platinum: Fire Sale On The Rich Man's Gold / Commodities / Platinum

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Lee writes: About 2000 years ago, Aristotle explained why gold remained the ideal choice of money throughout major nations and civilizations.  In words that are just as relevant today, he said "Gold is durable, not like wheat, divisible, not like diamonds, convenient, not like lead, constant, not like real estate, and best of all, as jewelry, it has intrinsic value".

Platinum, The Cheapest Precious Metal… / Commodities / Platinum

By: Willem_Weytjens

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistorically, precious metals (such as Gold & Silver for example) had an important role as currency, but are now regarded mainly as investment and industrial commodities. Gold, silver, platinum, and palladium each have an ISO 4217 currency code.

With the ongoing crises in the Western World, precious metals are regaining their role as "currency", as they cannot be printed out of thin air unlike fiat money.

Big Gains To be Made in Platinum and Palladium / Commodities / Platinum

By: Mike_Stall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile a majority of investors, analysts and experts dwelt on gold and (to a lesser extent silver) in 2010, sister precious metals platinum and palladium notched up significant gains matching gains in the investment safe havens. While gold and silver gained close to 30% and 80% respectively, platinum and palladium were nowhere lagging - gaining in the region of 20% and 100% in that order. We inspect long-term prospects of these lesser invested metals in this essay. A strong case for platinum and palladium makes for diversification of precious metals funds into these metals. This diversification of funds is of particular importance when Investors are being suggested to wait for medium-term corrections before stocks become 'investable' again.

Platinum and Gold Price Trend Relationship Analysis / Commodities / Platinum

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePlatinum and gold, how much of a relationship do these metals really have?  Gold has been the talk of the town lately, a growingly-popular safe haven in these wild economic times.  But platinum, one hardly hears of this metal.  Guys like me who have wives with high-end jewelry taste certainly know about platinum, and car buffs are familiar with its use in catalytic converters.  But with the average investor knowing very little about this metal, is it even on the same playing field as gold?

Platinum in the Fast Lane / Commodities / Platinum

By: Sean_Brodrick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany investors know their way around gold or crude oil, but not a lot know what they need to know about platinum. And that’s too bad, because it’s becoming easier than ever to invest in platinum, with a third platinum exchange-traded fund about to make its debut in the U.S. That doesn’t mean you should rush out and buy it — there are some pros and cons to this metal, with potential for rich rewards and equally big losses for the unwary.

Platinum and Commodities Bubble, Deflationary Crash / Commodities / Platinum

By: Kyle_L_Lucas

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the weekend I received a note from a reader asking me to evaluate the market for Platinum. I hope she doesn't mind if I just quote the better part of her note to me: good morning, Lucas. A theme that I'd like you to look at - if it interests you - are platinum futures. The platinum/gold ratio is interesting. I read that the reason platinum sold off so badly was that outfits like GM had to liquidate their usual 6 month supply stockpiles. I've been noticing that some of the producers in the PGM sector have been 'coming alive'; and showing some pretty good relative strength, even in relation to gold miners. Anyway, looking at this etf, PGM, also showing signs of life...as you know, PGM holds futures; I would be inclined to buy it; but don't know how to evaluate the contango issue; so don't know whether a buy here would be a losing play because of the 'roll premium' drag, as it has been, and will continue to be (i believe; but wtf do I know?) with USO, which I would not buy.

Precious Metals Investing: Gold or Platinum / Commodities / Platinum

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Au” and “Pt” may be dull chemical elements, but gold and platinum have certainly played their respective parts during the unfolding of the financial crisis. Revisiting the metals' movements, it is clear from the table below that gold's decline was much smaller than that of platinum - as platinum suffered from the deterioration in the auto industry - but the recovery of gold has also been lesser than that of platinum.

Precious Metals PGM Secular Bull Market / Commodities / Platinum

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe precious metals are in the midst of fantastic secular bull markets. And one of the most precious of metals, platinum, has been getting a lot of attention in recent weeks. With geopolitical strife accentuating platinum's current supply shortfalls, speculators have grabbed hold of this metal and launched its price into a parabolic ascent.

While gold still remains king of all metals for a variety of fundamental reasons, platinum is more precious simply because of its price. Its rarity in the earth's crust combined with the challenges of economically extracting it keeps its value typically about twice that of gold.

Platinum – The Most Precious and Overlooked Precious Metal / Commodities / Platinum

By: Mark_OByrne


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy Platinum Remains a Strong Buy

Introduction - Gold and Silver Investments Limited continue to be bullish on precious metals and bullish on platinum. Platinum has recently hit new record highs at $1590 per ounce along with gold. Even though platinum has surpassed its 1980 high of $1,070 per ounce in nominal terms, it is still only some half the price of its inflation-adjusted high of $2,800 per ounce. We believe this high will be reached in the next 5 to 8 years in this new supply/ demand driven secular bull market in platinum.

Will Mugabe Seize Control of 51% of Zimbabwe's Platinum Mines? / Commodities / Platinum

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Mr. Mugabe has a long history of destroying the country's assets. It started with him forcing Zimbabwe banks [such as Grindley's] holding foreign investments on behalf of Zimbabweans [in nominee names], to hand them over to the government in exchange for 4% government bonds [that was in 1983]. That resulted in the termination of direct private foreign investments to Zimbabwe. Next came the white owned farmland, which confiscations led to Zimbabwe changing from the breadbasket of Africa to a country unable to grow its own food and starvation staring many of them in the face.

Plantinum The Forgotten Metal! / Commodities / Platinum

By: Money_and_Markets

Larry Edelson writes :Gold is within a mere 7% of a new 26-year high, exploding higher by $38 in just the last seven weeks.

The culprit is the growing recognition that the U.S. dollar is weak at the knees and heading down the tubes. That in turn is causing inflation to rev higher … and other natural resources to climb virtually non-stop.
