Thread: Three best and worst performing commodities of 2016 and 2017

    Palladium Panic-Bid To Record Highs As Shortage Fears Mount

    Palladium was up 55% in 2017 - the best performing commodity in the world - and if the first two days of this year are anything to go by, 2018 will see a repeat.
    Palladium inventories in warehouses tracked by Nymex shrank 25 percent in December, capping a fourth straight annual decline, the longest streak since 2000.

    Amid shrinking inventories and still strong (credit-fueled) auto production (and sales), Bloomberg reports the metal used to curb pollution from gasoline-fueled engines climbed to a record on the New York Mercantile Exchange as the dollar weakened for a fifth straight day.

    Palladium production will continue to lag behind consumption until at least 2022, Morgan Stanley analysts forecast in a report Dec. 11.

    Jeffrey Gundlach sees a big rally in commodities;

    "Whenever you have a late cycle going into the front end of a
    recession, you have a massive rally in commodities."

    Commodities in up swing. Time to own commodities:

    My note: aluminium companies like Alcoa are doing fine, in a strong uptrend.
    There are commodities ETF's like IYM...
