Palladium Pushes To 8-Mo. High; More Upside Likely
(Kitco News) - Palladium futures on Thursday scored an eight-month high of $1,053.40, as of this writing at mid-morning. The palladium bulls have the solid near-term technical advantage to suggest still more gains in the near term, including a likely challenge soon of the all-time high of $1,111.15 scored in January of this year. Fundamentally, reports say the sharp gains in palladium recently are mainly due to stockpiling of the precious metal by China due to a trade war with the U.S. and its associated uncertainties going forward , and because China is likely to ramp up its vehicle production in the coming years.
