Russia-Ukraine conflict drives some commodity prices


A Russian invasion of Ukraine may be imminent. Gold and palladium prices profit.

The world\-s largest palladium producer is South Africa, with Russia in second place. Now concerns are growing about possible export restrictions. Palladium is in high demand by the automotive industry. And it is still unclear to what extent sanctions by the West and measures by Russia could occur. Palladium is used similarly to platinum; this is due to the similar characteristics. Whether as a material for catalytic converters, in medical technology, for electronic articles, computer chips, in the jewelry industry or visibly more as an investment metal, the price of palladium is mainly influenced by economic events. The largest producer of palladium coins is Russia. Due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict palladium has already become more expensive, about 23 percent within one month the raw material has increased in price.

Palladium and platinum, for example, are produced by Sibanye-Stillwater – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKhndWB3VVc – in South Africa and in the USA. In addition, Sibanye-Stillwater is also a major gold producer and is currently putting out its feelers intensively for projects with metals for green energies (battery metal sector). The current crisis has also boosted the price of gold, and the safe haven is once again clearly in demand. Private investors in this country hold more than 9,000 tons of gold.

The fact that investors are also increasingly turning to gold coins can be seen from the current rise in the price of gold coins such as the Krugerrand, American Eagle and Maple Leaf. Also, into the ETFs flowed recently clearly more.

A possibility to invest would be also the values of the gold companies. Here one could think of the royalty company Osisko Gold Royalties – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_znAPvgkYvM -. Diversification included, the company has more than 160 royalties and streams and is focused on gold and copper in North and South America.
