Platinum is far rarer and less well-known to investors than other coveted precious metals such as silver or gold, but is also seen as a valuable option for many investors. Platinum, which looks like silver, is a chemical element, precious metal, and commodity all in one that manufacturers use primarily for products such as automobiles, jewelry, and electronics.
Palladium is the most valuable precious metal at the moment, but platinum could narrow the gap against its rival, lifting the Aberdeen Standard Platinum Shares ETF (PPLT) along the way. “Palladium will cost on average more than twice as much as platinum this year, but that premium will narrow in 2021 as prices slip from record highs and platinum gains ground,” according to Reuters. Platinum is primarily used in catalytic converters in diesel-powered automobiles, but environmental concerns previously tamped down demand for the precious metal.
Thanks to as much as a 500-point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average in Monday’s trading session, it was risk-off for investors as they piled into safe havens like bonds and gold. Gold was on a path of bearishness after a U.S.-China “phase one” trade deal put the risk back into the markets. “After almost three weeks of consolidation, gold has now pushed higher on risk-aversion as the Coronavirus position worsens and the markets move away from risk,” said Rhona O’Connell, head of market analysis for EMEA & Asia at INTL FCStone, in a daily note.
In a year in which gold notched its best annual showing since 2010 and palladium soared, platinum and the Aberdeen Standard Platinum Shares ETF (PPLT) went largely overlooked. PPLT seeks to reflect the performance of the price of physical platinum, less the expenses of the Trust’s operations and is designed for investors who want a cost-effective and convenient way to invest in platinum with minimal credit risk. PPLT still finished 2019 with a gain of nearly 21% and there is evidence to suggest some professional investors are betting on more upside for platinum in the new year.
The Aberdeen Standard Platinum Shares ETF (PPLT A) and the GraniteShares Platinum Trust (PLTM C) are each up about 12% this year, which is enough to make the platinum ETFs laggards among precious metals ETFs. However, some commodities market observers believe platinum can capture some momentum into year-end.
