Platinum & Palladium vs Gold & Silver - Mike Maloney with Jeff Clark

  • Published on Sep 10, 2019
  • Download Mike's best-selling book for free here: Platinum and palladium are both precious metals, just like gold and silver, because their occurrence in the earth’s crust is rare.
    In fact, platinum is actually more rare than gold.
    So why doesn’t GoldSilver sell them?
    It has to do with their uses, and their status as a safe haven. Here’s what you need to know before investing in these metals…
    Are Platinum and Palladium “Investment” Metals?
    Platinum (Pt) and palladium (Pd) are part of the Platinum Group Metals (PGMs). They’re both silvery in color; in fact, platinum’s name is derived from the Spanish term platina, which means “little silver.”
    Given their unique chemical makeup, these metals are used almost exclusively in industrial applications, particularly in catalytic converters to reduce pollution from vehicles. Platinum is more often used in diesel engines, while palladium is used more in gasoline engines.

      Platinum is money. The US mint produces $100 coins as well as other denominations. Platinum historically was also used for some of the finest jewelry. It use to be that the best quality diamonds would be set in platinum not gold or silver.

      one more point the chart of gold and silver and pt performance during crashes, PLATINUM on AVAERage performed BETTER than SILVER during crashes, so I don't know why people are bothering to stack silver now, because when the DOW tanks, silver will be easily back to US$15 or LESS.One a final point, GOLD CRASHED in 1982 because the FED increased % rates to 15% to kill inflation, that crushed golds bull run, THEY CANT DO THAT NOW, the FED ant even raise rates to 4% now or the economy will collapse, this time when things go belly up, nothing will stop the gold bull run, if the FED didn't raise % rates to 15% in 1982, golds bull run wouldn't have ended at US$850, it would have kept going to US$1000+

    If Mike Maloney wont even buy Platinum, I'm going all in.
    I am basically betting that this cycle platinum and palladium will undergo a severe revaluation. I think the gold and silver markets are healthy and can handle a spike in investment demand. Silver will spike but I will not be surprised if the high is somewhere near $45 this time around.

    The historical use of platinum would make me nervous to invest in. No monetary history and there was even a time miners were throwing it in the sea because it WASN'T silver and considered counterfeit. Not a huge fan of it's industrial applications right now that would drive me far enough to invest in it also. BUT. Simply put, would you rather a platinum made chair or a chair made of plastic?? Easy, the platinum chair would be considered nice by everyone for reasons hard to explain. It's just nice.. The same way gold is just nice and has value. What it's value will be in the future we can't say but it will have some kind of value which is kind of the bottom line for all precious metals...

    I feel that Platinum/Palladium are more speculative because they are industrial metals, but when the price of gold and silver skyrockets the cash will chase these to. It may be ok to diversify your precious metal holdings with a very small amount of these metals for speculation purposes. It adds portfolio diversification. We do not know what technological changes can happen. Imagine if platinum is used in next gen technology, the price would explode.

    @goldsilver, please show your sozrces before you claim something is more rare. There are sources claming palladium is rarer, while others state gold is rarer. I think you should take the mean or average.

  • curtisharrell

    NOW I'M NO EXPERT HERE like some of you good folks, but it seems that what's really called for, to cover all possible bases and contingencies is an investment spread of the 4 metals (leaning heavily in whichever direction you like) that still takes all metals, their strengths and weaknesses during a recession, into account.

    For instance I'd invest half between silver and gold, that half further subdivided heavily in favor of what I could afford at the time, and another half between platinum and palladium.

    THAT latter half I would invest in slightly in favor of whichever metal is doing best at the time.

    Now THAT'S a well-rounded metals portfolio, especially since the last two metals are also being used more and more in technological applications beyond their current forte as catalysts.

      True. But IMO it's about not trusting the fiat currency, a currency crisis and wealth preservation against inflation even when things are going "good". If all I cared about was these bubble cycles and recessions I would just invest in safe stocks.

    Not pricing gold in dollars because you think dollars are trash isn't quite the whole thing. Price dollars against metals instead. I don't like to disagree with people like Kiyosaki and Schiff but I won't be buying gold when I have money. It doesn't seem to make sense to me.

    LOL What do you think it does to your credibility when you use the orange color for silver? Do you think it masks or hides the fact that silver was almost always going down during recessions, just like Platinum and Palladium did? This is what I've been saying for years. Silver is NOT an investment grade metal, nor money. In the EU, you even pay 20% VAT on silver, but not on gold bullion.

    Mike Maloney just makes up very lame excuses why he doesn't sell platinum!
    Gold and platinum will have the same status as a risk free Tier 1 asset under the regulations of Basel III.
    Everything Mr. Maloney said in his video about Basel III and gold is equally true for platinum.
    It makes no sense anymore to consider gold but not platinum as money!

    The United states mint thinks platinum is money. It mints platinum American eagles . Not only that it places them at twice the value of the gold American eagles. Platinum has $100 minted on it, were as the gold has $50 stamped on them. "IF" we ever revert to the gold standard and the U.S.DOLLAR is rethrowned with gold. PLATINUM "AS MONEY" WILL BE WORTH TWICE THE VALUE OF GOLD. Not only that Platnium costs $600 less than gold. (Per ounce). Now, dont even get me started on that other metal....who the hell would want to buy it anyways???

  • beswick1111
    beswick1111 Month ago +3

    on AVERAGE according to his chart, SILVER has fallen 14% and PT has fallen 9% why don't you clowns mention this? why would anyone stack silver now when we know theres going to be a great depression eventually, and silver will be US$15 or even US$12, stack than when prices fall, even if premiums go up abit more it will still be smarter to buy silver after it crashes than paying US$18 for it now.

    • dlllester
      dlllester Month ago

      Hard to say, silver crashed last time before we all saw the plan of central banks to print their way out of any recession. Now people know to expect QE on steroids with no chance of ever going back to a "normal" interest rate, so it likely will not happen the same way, although it could, obviously. If 1% of money in the stock market went into silver it would probably go up at least 10x because the total annual production right now equals about 16 billion dollars. That's a ludicrously tiny amount compared to the amount of currency out there in circulation. The problem holding it down besides sentiment of the general public, is that a lot of money will flow into silver stocks instead of the metal itself. That's part of the reason why in the recent run up we've seen some primary silver stocks double and triple with a 2-4$ increase in the spot price. I think it's very likely in the coming scenario there will be silver shortages, as in you want to buy it, but it's all spoken for. With how tiny the market is, a person would be silly to discount that possibility, IMO.

    you can buy PLATINUM about US$600 cheaper per ounce than gold and its x25 rarer, I know what im buying now, I talked to a mining engineer about platinum a few weeks ago and what he thinks will happen to PT prices longer, he says he dosent know, all he said is GET AS MUCH AS YOU CAN , because long term its only going to go up, mining will fall all the time as supply runs out, and demand will only increase, even if electric cars win out.

    I won't touch Gold. Make no sense to buy gold when Platinum is so cheap. Platinum is way way undervalued and get's no attention. When it moves it's going to move big. If you want to be in something while it's really beat down, get some platinum now. Personally I love it better than anything. The price is so incredibly right, right now. (I have plenty of silver already too).

    Tesla what a rip off of the American public and destruction of the environment. Look into the mining of Lithium and the energy expenditure and pollution generated making those batteries. On the west coast electricity is not generated from nothing. Most is natural gas, oil , and such. east coast is predominantly coal still. So you have a coal powered car, or natural gas powered car. Subsidized heavily, by the taxpayer. Buy a 4 cyclinder Subaru you'll do better, or a Honda, either way, a stock 4 cyclinder for life of vehicle and maintenance is more environmentally friendly than that prius or Tesla. we only ever hear the marketing about these vehicles. Dig beyond the propaganda . Love the channel though.
