Is there any rational explanation about what Palladium is doing?

I don't know but from the outside looking in it appears to be market manipulation. I would never buy today when I remember Palladium well under $100. Think Rhodium.

    I think the US Mint making eagles has probably something to do with it. That's a good deal of physical demand, plus all of those new cars need a little..

    Is there a rational explanation for gold, silver, Apple or Google stock? Hysteria rules!

    Performing just like the stock market. Normality , perhaps.

    My guess is that some of the catalytic converter manufacturers retooled their factories years ago when Pt was over double Pd. That was not cheap, easy or fast. They have no choice but to buy Pd at market prices. There has been a deficit for something like 8 years. Russia controls almost 1/2 of world production of Palladium, that may have something to do with it.
    IMHO, it is the time to buy platinum, not Pd.

    speculation. Every body wants to be in at the ground floor or at least shortly thereafter.

    All debt-based consumption steals from the future to gratify the present. It is tomorrow’s consumption pulled forward. It signs a perpetual check against an overdrawn future.
