Gold Price Latest - Is Palladium More Valuable than Gold?

Gold and Palladium Prices, News and Analysis

  • Gold remains rangebound with US rate hikes crimping upside momentum.
  • Palladium rallies more than 40% in the last three-months.

The brand new DailyFX Q4 Gold Forecast is now available to help traders navigate the market.

Are you new to gold trading or are you looking to improve your trading skill sets? We have recently produced an in-depth primer on How to Trade Gold: Top Gold Trading Strategies and Tips.

Gold Losing its Shine as Palladium Soars

The gold – palladium spread is close to crossing over in the near-future as the white metal continues to rally hard. Palladium – used mainly in catalytic converters – has benefitted from the automobile industries move away from diesel engines to petrol engines, boosting demand in a market which currently has limited supply. This tightening supply/demand backdrop has seen Palladium garner increased interest from speculative buyers, pushing the price ever higher. This move comes despite fears that the global economy is slowing down and recent German car sales data which showed overall sales down 7.4% in October.

Gold on the other hand continues to find upside momentum difficult with the likelihood of higher US interest rates weighing on the precious metal. The Fed is still expected to increase US rates by another 0.25% in December, despite recent mildly dovish Fed speak, and further hikes are expected in 2019 as Fed Chair Jerome Powell continues to cool the US economy.

The Gold/Palladium cross-over highlights different market conditions more than economic divergence. Recent market commentary points to a tight Palladium market with limited liquidity leaving buyers in control of price action. Gold remains stuck in a trading range and needs to break resistance between $1,236/oz. and $1,244/oz to regain upward momentum. Gold currently trades at $1,228/oz.
