Another precious metal, albeit a less popular one, is shining brightly after breaking out from a 3-year symmetrical triangle last week:

Palladium_Weekly_3.11.2014

This breakout has all the makings of one that investors should not take lightly (volume, duration, and price action) – A 4-digit price tag for an ounce of palladium during 2014 is well within the realm of possibility.

There are a few ways to play a rally in platinum group metals – here are a few of our favorite names:

Stillwater Mining (SWC)

SWC_Weekly

Similar to the palladium chart in terms of the recent breakout with strong volume confirmation. Pullbacks are likely to represent buying opportunities with a $20+ intermediate term price target for SWC.

Ivanhoe Mines (IVN.TO)

IVN.TO_Daily

Recent pullback to support ($1.50-$1.70) – $2.00 is still the big upside nut to crack.

Wellgreen Platinum (WG.V)

WG.V_Daily

Energy building as price nears apex of large symmetrical triangle – upside breakout easily targets $1.25+
