April platinum has posted moderate gains this morning, as the market starts the new trading week moving back towards the middle of last week's trading range. Platinum prices are thought to be showing some positive action today, and are widely thought to be benefiting from supportive industrial and physical market fundamentals. In addition, some traders feel that the platinum market might be garnering some support from bullish comments from a key platinum company CEO, who predicted a global supply deficit in platinum over the coming 4 years. Euro zone Industrial Production during December was down 0.1%, a smaller decline than expectations which may project stronger levels of industrial platinum demand over the first half of 2011.
