The platinum market has been able to make a moderate recovery this morning, but remains near the lower end of a large reversal that took prices more than $70 below this week's early highs. April platinum's safe-haven support has been thought to be at a minimum, as pressure on industrial metals from the unrest in Libya has helped to send the market towards the lowest prices levels since the end of January. Risk concerns from events in the Middle East and North Africa appear to be easing, but many traders feel that the platinum market may need to receive more signs of improving global confidence before making a return towards yesterday's highs. Euro zone Industrial New Orders during December were up 2.1%, higher than expected and may be a signal of stronger European industrial platinum demand during the near future.
