April platinum has been able to lift away from the recent lows, but some traders feel that a huge reversal that began this week's trading remains a very large hurdle for the market to overcome. Other traders feel that risk concerns from events in North Africa and the Middle East could limit the potential for a sustained rally away from these levels, but a recently sluggish Dollar should help in keeping a floor under the platinum market. Indications of stronger Chinese platinum imports overnight were also thought to have provided some measure of support as well. Euro zone Economic Sentiment during February was at 107.8, higher than expectations and may lead to higher level of industrial platinum consumption within the Euro zone during the near future.
