NYMEX:PA1!   Palladium Futures
4.10.22 PA1! and Lumber : I was really surprised when my students sent me an email showing a huge margin requirement for Palladium. I was a little embarrassed to not realize how high the margin requirements were, so I made some excuses for something I missed, and I gave my perspective on how I would look at this and what it means from a practical point of view. There is a difference between high margin requirements versus realistic risk in your trading account. Personally, I will trade palladium when everything set up and ready to go. If you can't afford palladium because you don't meet the margin requirements, this is no big deal because there are other commodity accounts that require much less margin, and can make you very nice returns with appropriate risk. However this market in palladium is so important because of its clarity in terms of market dynamics, pattern behaviors, and its intrinsic volatility , you still want to follow this because you may very well find yourself trading markets like this when you are more consistently profitable in your trading and have accumulated more capital.
