While April platinum has traded higher this morning, prices remain near the lower end of yesterday's large selloff. Ongoing concerns for rising interest rates, noted weakness in equities, continued turmoil in Egypt as well as a rising Dollar, have all been widely seen as putting pressure on the market.
President Mubarak of Egypt has transferred some of his powers, but continues to remain in office which may provoke further global investment demand for platinum as a safe-haven investment.
