Palladium: Portfolio diversification, opportunity
If you want to move beyond using precious metals to secure your wealth to using precious metals to grow your wealth, you may want to explore investing in palladium. Especially when you consider that palladium is 30 times rarer than gold right now, yet about half the price.
We believe its relatively low price is due, in part, to the fact that palladium is not as widely recognized as gold by the general public. However, palladium is highly prized by industry, especially in the automotive industry, where it is critical for a wide variety of vehicle parts. When the auto industry is growing, chances are the demand, and price, for palladium is too. In fact, when the stock market rallies, it’s a generally a fair bet that palladium demand may very well do the same.
At this moment, palladium is in a promising position thanks to its very finite supply, declining production and growing demand. This combination creates an interesting potential profit-making formula for investors.
How Can I Buy Palladium As An Investment?
While there are palladium mining stocks, palladium ETFs and other investments that some people claim to be backed in palladium or directly influenced by the spot price of palladium, these investments are more directly tied to other market conditions, company performance or must be managed by others which could affect their value over time.
Most often, you will see palladium in the form of bars or coins. Palladium coins are produced by sovereign mints of the world and usually have a face value in the local currency of the country of origin.
There are also small selections of palladium rounds produced by private mints just like palladium bars. These rounds look similar to coins, but do not carry a denominated face value like coins, and they are not guaranteed by a sovereign mint. Palladium rounds and palladium bars both have purity, weight and certificate stamps or assay cards and are available in wide assortment of sizes, shapes and weights.

What is the Palladium Spot Price?
The palladium spot price is driven by the futures market, but is the universal gauge for measuring the value of the underlying metal. In the case of precious metals like palladium, this is the amount of currency it would take to purchase one Troy Ounce of palladium at any given moment in time.
This price is updated every few seconds during market hours and is based on current market conditions, supply demand and other economic factors. Often the price of palladium is affected by current events, which can cause the price of palladium to go up or down significantly in any given day.
How Does The Palladium Spot Price Affect Me?
Since palladium products, like Palladium Maple Leafs, Palladium Bars, or even jewelry, in many cases are priced based on the spot price for the underlying metal value plus any premium associated with the type of palladium product (bar or coin). The spot price is the primary driver for the pricing you see on a given product. Generally speaking, the higher the spot price, the higher the price for the final coin or bar, and as the spot price decreases, then the final price for the coin or bar will go down relative to the spot price.
