What Influences Metal Prices?

While simple supply and demand affect the price of a metal on a day to day basis, pricing can be affected by a number of outside factors including changes in technology, national and international politics and trade deals, and the activities of major producers and mines.

Rare Doesn't Equal Valuable

Many metals are much more rare than gold, but less valuable. Why? History and pyschology play a large part. Gold has a history as a store of wealth going back thousands of years. It is rare enough to be hard to find, but not so rare that little can be found.
