Infographic: Periodic Table of Commodities Returns 2014; SPOILER ALERT – Palladium Dominated

Every year around this time, US Global Investors publishes their popular Periodic Table of Commodities Returns – a neat little graphic showing the best and worst performing commodities from the previous year compared to the last decade.

As the chart shows, palladium dominated in 2014, earning almost double the gains of its nearest competitor, nickel. Needless to say, gold and silver did not make the top three, but both metals ended up from the previous year. Platinum, meanwhile, held steady at the number 8 spot.

The two worst performing commodities by far were natural gas and crude oil – down 31% and 45% respectively.
