2. Hot Market Report: Palladium Volatility Reaches new heights

By Joe Easton, Senior Broker

PA futures; Palladium is part of the Precious Metals sector along with "it's" brothers Platinum, Gold, Silver and Copper.

Palladium futures is not the most popular market, but this week it was one of the more volatile Futures Markets. Good traders know volatile markets create better opportunity for profit and higher risk of loss.

4 hour chart from this morning, (Mar. 29th 2019). From the chart… we have been on a serious uptrend, followed by a significant retracement this week. In January PA Futures were just about $1200. By late March PA traded over $1575 per contract. This week from Monday around price $1540 we dropped to Thursday low of $1303. Roughly a $237 move per 1 contract is = $23,700 over 4 days. I suggest being careful with this market when trying to capitalize on the volatility, make sure you can afford the risk, use stops to try and limit the risk and make sure you are paying attention and watching price action!!. Markets with less volume like PA cause for more chance of larger moves in shorter times. $1385 and $1460 are levels to watch for reaction off previous Support and resistance and below the current price of $1356 is $1270. Good Trading!
