The Palladium Bull Run is Underway

 David H. Smith

A precious metal which has over 80% of its annual production coming from just two countries? Considerably rarer than its cousin, platinum – known by the Spanish Conquistadors as “little silver” - yet sells for a bit more than half as much? Like silver, a “two-doors” metal with both vital industrial applications and increasing investor interest? And like these metals, it can be bought and sold by investors in the form of bullion coins and ingots? That metal is palladium.

Its better known relative, platinum, also suffers from a supply-demand imbalance, which over the next few years should take its price much higher. However, palladium, which now trades at $600 per ounce less, yet can be substituted for most of the roles platinum fills, is in the eyes of this writer an investment option with even more lucrative potential.

GT Advanced Technologies’ Plan to Rewire Solar Modules

Could this be solar’s long-sought way to eliminate costly silver wiring?

Herman K. Trabish 
March 26, 2014

A new design for the flow of electricity through solar cells that could cut module costs as much as 10 percent has been developed by GT Advanced Technologies.

GT’s Merlin metallization process replaces the three thick strips of silver that run through modules, called busbars, with thin lines of silver scattered through the cells. The silver lines, called fingers, function as the cell’s wiring, channeling electrons released when sunlight hits the cell’s semiconductor material into the electrical system.

GT said Merlin can be retrofitted into existing cell manufacturing lines’ screen printers. An additional attachment tool would insert a coated copper overlay with a tab at the cell's edge. Electrons flow through the Merlin architecture from the silver fingers into the copper overlay and to the tab.

The miners have started 2014 very well indeed on the back of rising gold prices, so the question is; is this the real deal or another head fake? Is the bottom really in? Could there be a final capitulation just ahead of us? Will the summer doldrums take the PMs lower?

Will Import Taxes on Solar Panels hamper Silvers ability to rally?

Background

Investors are disillusioned by the inability of silver prices to rise to higher ground as silver enters its 4th year of looking anything but sparkling. As a silver bug I think that we have suffered long enough but finding the ignition that will set silver on fire is proving to be difficult. There are a myriad of factors to consider before making an investment in silver such as: supply and demand, price manipulation, industrial usage, jewellery, investment, various metrics such as the gold/silver price ratio, etc. The list is almost endless so today we will look at just one of them which we think is important; the imposition of import duties on solar panels.

ECB steps up battle against low inflation, slow-moving economy

ATHENS — The Globe and Mail

The European Central Bank entered untested territory by dropping a key interest rate into negative territory as it ramped up its campaign to prevent deflation and push down the euro. But the move, unprecedented for a big central bank, fell short of the all-out assault that the sluggish European economy may need to restore strong growth.
