New York Platinum Week

SFA (Oxford) launches The Palladium Standard in New York on 11th September

A special event during New York Platinum Week

Since SFA launched The Palladium Standard in 2016, the price of this metal rise to over $1,000/oz. However, recently the price has softened. Is this a pause and can we expect greater upside next year on firmer demand and evolving powertrains? What are the impacts of recycling and exchange-traded fund (ETF) redemptions? How will cuts in mine supply from South Africa affect palladium going forward?

In addition, this event will examine the outperforming metals, ruthenium and iridium. The ruthenium price has risen five-fold over the past 18 months, but what can now be expected of this versatile PGM? The iridium price has also seen a hike over the last 12 months, but is demand now easing? What percentage of current mine supply is at risk of closure?

These issues will be addressed by Stephen Forrest, SFA Chairman, and Dr Jenny Watts, SFA Principal Analyst.

Each attendee at our event will also receive a complimentary copy of The Palladium Standard which, along with SFA’s view on the palladium, platinum and rhodium markets and the key industry data and indicators for the past 12 months, includes an article on the potential impact of President Trump’s sanctions, entitled “PGMs – casualties of a US-China trade war?”.
