Just read the post to which I replied and see if you can figure this out yourself.

Itís also used with platinum, for very high temperature thermocouples.

Itís also used as an industrial plating due to its extreme corrosion resistance..
i used to work in gold jewelry manufacturing. i used rhodium plating every single day.

This is a financial forum, people are expected to have a basic ability to read and understand simple groups of words. If you are confused then just try reading more slowly.

Youíre probably right that most of it goes to cats but it definitely is used in electronic contacts as well.

From above link:

Platinum, palladium, rhodium and iridium are used to coat electrodes, the tiny components in all electronic products which help to control the flow of electricity.

Iíve never seen it used on contacts, not to say it isnt. It is used on contact surfaces ( where there is a sliding motion, and itís hardness is warented) The person who wrote the quoted sentence is an idiot. Rhodium electrodes ( usually platinum-rhodium) are used in analytical chemistry to sense electronegativity- the idea being not to let any current flow, but to measure a voltage. Electrodes are rarely used in electronics-Iíd guess the most common examples are EKGs, pacemakers, defrubralators, and TASERs. More common in everyday use is the earth electrode- ie ground rod. Generically a electrode is something that conducts current into a non metal subatance- air, soil, a liquid/solution/electrolyte , or the body, for example.

It hit over $4500 recently, now in a pullback to 4000.
Still think it's predicting much high AU prices.

About 30 tons mined per year, mostly as platinum byproduct.

Caught its breath, now Rh up to $5000 an oz. - Leading the charge for Au and Ag.
I posted the original remark, not to advise getting into Rhodium, but that is may be a foreteller of much higher prices for Au and thus also Ag. As from several years ago, there was a lag, but it seems to be happening again. Rh might double from here, but Ag could easily quadruple.

Now, 4 months later, Rhodium is $9000 an oz., doubled since the last post.
Make of it what you will. What will happen is contained in this thread.

The paper markets are not shorting the metal like they do gold and silver.

There is no ETF market for Rhodium. It's a free-market supply/demand deal. It's used in catalytic reactors in cars, and for now it's in short supply.

XFRD and ETFRHO are ETF's.

Maybe that is because there is no practical way to short it; no futures or derivatives.

Those ETFs may exist, okay, but they're tiny when compared to the "Big Four". Apparently JP Morgue et al don't bother with Rhodium.

Gold is 1600+ now...Rhodium jumped $1200 an oz in just one day - today.
