Last week saw prices fall across the preciou smetals sector, with all the major benchmarks losing value except rhodium. It’s not all bad news though. Only palladium is below where it was two weeks ago, and then only fractionally. Most of the losses happened early in the week and by Wednesday prices were stabilizing, with […]
