 NEW YORK, Jan 8 (Reuters) - The first U.S. platinum and
palladium exchange-traded funds began trading on Friday, and
buying interest could be seen in early sessions.
 More than 20,000 contracts of the ETFS Physical Platinum
Shares PPLT were traded by 10 a.m. EST (1500 GMT), and volume
in ETFS Physical Palladium Shares PALL exceeded 50,000 lots
on the NYSE Arca platform.
 The funds are wholly owned by London-based ETF Securities
