New commodities available for trading: Platinum and Palladium

We are excited to announce that we are expanding our selection of commodities by adding two precious metals to the mix:

Platinum (XPT) and Palladium (XPD)

platinum palladium

These two metals, though perhaps not as present in our daily lives such as silver and gold, are in high demand across various industries, including but not limited to: electronics, dentistry, chemistry, surgical instruments, jewelry and even experiments in cold fusion!

Highly popular on the commodities market, just like any resource that is both extremely practical and scarce, these two metals are safe haven for investors who wish to diversify in times of currency crises.

While palladium has been traditionally regarded as a cheaper and more available substitute for its more high end cousin Platinum, it has recently been making a name for itself as a clean energy catalyst, particularly in the auto industry as many car manufacturers have adopted the use of Palladium in trying to cut down carbon emissions.
