The accusations by the EPA that VW may have rigged the software on some diesel models is thought to benefit gasoline cars. These cars tend to use Palladium in their catalytic converters more than Platinum, leading to some dramatic moves this week. 

Markets are interconnected in many ways that are not always immediately obvious. The accusations by the EPA that VW may have rigged the software on some diesel models is thought to benefit gasoline cars. These cars tend to use Palladium in their catalytic converters more than Platinum, leading to some dramatic moves this week. Here’s what I see this morning:

Gold
The 1120.50 level (December contract) was able to hold on Wednesday, and we saw very strong buying yesterday. There’s no follow through today, however, and we are starting the morning moderately lower. The key for today and Monday is for Thursday’s low of 1129.50 to hold. If it does, we could see the bulls regroup and rally towards the August high of 1169.80.

Silver
Silver also managed to rally yesterday, but with only a fraction of the strength we saw in Gold. We are a little lower as I write this. If we can manage a thrust through Thursday’s high of 15.180 (December) especially on a closing basis, we could see a test and penetration of the 9-18 high of 15.435.

Platinum
Palladium followed through solidly to the upside yesterday and this morning, and remains the strongest metal of this group by a good margin. I would consider any pullback here to be a correction in a bull market for the time being.

Palladium
Palladium followed through solidly to the upside yesterday and this morning, and remains the strongest metal of this group by a good margin. I would consider any pullback here to be a correction in a bull market for the time being.
