Trading Futures, Options on Futures, and retail off-exchange foreign currency transactions involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. You should carefully consider whether trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances, knowledge, and financial resources. You may lose all or more of your initial investment. Opinions, market data, and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

2. Hot Market Report: Palladium Making Multi Years High

By Mark O'Brien, Senior Broker

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

Daily chart from this morning, (Nov. 9th 2018). As of the time I am typing this newsletter, Palladium is backing off with sympathy to the sell off in gold and silver, however, notice the major run this market experienced from mid August. In our opinion, this market may be sitting on junction, either a double top and correction or gathering strength to make new highs. This chart was prepared using CQG Q Trader software, which you can demo for 14 days with realtime data.

From the fundamental perspective, Palladium, though not on most traders’ radars, may be worth including on your trading platform’s quote display. In the face of gold and silver trading near 2-yr. lows, and copper trading barely 4% above its 1-yr. low, palladium more than doubled in price from its Jan. ’16 lows near ±$500/oz. to over $1100/oz. (a >7-yr. high) by last January. It made a 7-month ±$300 correction down to ±$810 only to turn mid-August and more rapidly trade up to retest its Jan. highs these last few weeks.

On a different note, I don't personally like day-trading Palladium but I feel it is a good market for swing trading
