Abstract: Since 2008, financial market turbulence resulting in severe consequences for economic growth has caused an unprecedented increase in the gold price. Other precious metals such as silver or palladium have also experienced price rises; however, the gold price gap has increased significantly. Today, the palladium price is approximately 35 – 40% that of gold, with platinum just below and now losing its position of being the most expensive precious metal.
