HES Radio explains that:

The price of Platinum in 1996 was approx. $430.00 an ounce and the price of Palladium was approx. $160.00 an ounce. It was at that time that automakers switched to catalytic converters made with Palladium, sending the price of Palladium sky-rocketing to $1100.00 an ounce, exceeding the price of Platinum at $600.00 an ounce.

It would be surprising to see it directly cross strait through this level at which it should stall instead and some extent of consolidation is expected instead.
