Palladium, 1994 to March 2014 - (Bloomberg)
Gold traded below its highest level in more than four months as
tension between Ukraine and Russia eased leading to traders taking
profits on gold.
Palladium climbed for a fifth day and jumped to an 11 month high.
Palladium for June delivery rose 0.7% to $769/oz, the highest for the
most active contract since August 15. Palladium has gained 5.5% during
the last five days of the crisis and is up 7.4% year to date.
According to Bloomberg Industries analysts Kenneth Hoffman & Oliver Nugent, “any
sanctions imposed by the EU and the U.S. on the export of Russian
palladium group metals would create a serious supply shortage that may
be difficult for industries to replace.”
This year will show the third consecutive deficit year in global
palladium supply, according to a BI survey of analysts. Russia provided
44% of global palladium supply and 13.6% of platinum last year,
according to Johnson Matthey.
According to BI, “a pick up in China's demand for platinum group
metals may offset any sanctions imposed on Russia by the U.S. and
European Union. An increase of 26% sequentially in platinum imports by
China in November suggests that domestic supplies are depleting. Russia
has typically provided about 30% of China's palladium imports and China
may need to increase imports from the country as labor disputes in South
African mines continue to affect production.”
Tensions have eased but the crisis is far from over. Russia is the
world's largest energy producer and Ukraine hosts a network of strategic
pipelines that carry more than half of Russia's gas exports to the EU.
So, any conflict between the two countries threatens oil and gas
supplies and puts Europe's energy security and indeed economic recovery
Russia and Ukraine together account for roughly 40% of global grain
exports, mainly wheat. Russia is also a large corn exporter and a
conflict would likely lead to food and energy price inflation.
Ore deposits of palladium are rare and are mostly located in Russia
and South Africa. Russian resource nationalism, as has been seen with
natural gas, could lead to supply disruptions and to palladium going
higher in the coming months. Some analysts believe palladium may be in
deficit for most of the next decade as Russia depletes stock piles AND PILES OF STOCKS .

case if bullion owned is physical bullion coins and bars and not
digital, pooled, or paper formats. Fully segregated and allocated coin
