Today’s article calls it “platinum’s lesser-known cousin” and notes that it was once viewed as nothing more than “an unattractive byproduct of platinum mining”. We’re talking about palladium, which has been hitting new records and has even been more costly than gold recently (which has not happened since 2002) – and rather than seeing its fortunes reverse any time soon, palladium may continue to shine for quite some time.
