Palladium is a rare metal that is silvery white. It is part of the platinum group.
Because of its high melting point and corrosion, palladium is used in a variety of products, though it is most common in the manufacture of catalytic converters and electronics that help make microchips. Accordingly, it is necessary for the production of computers, cell phones and other electronics and transportation devices. Dentists and jewelers also use the element. It can be more durable than gold plating.
Why Does Palladium Matter?
Investors can invest in palladium via futures and options, as well as in physical bullion, bars, wafers and coins. Because it is a commodity in the world, investors should be very careful about managing the associated high risk.,
