Like silver, many traders feel that platinum may be trying to catch up with the gold market during the early Monday morning trading. With gold rising close to $1,900 an ounce and platinum making an upside breakout, market concerns of slowing physical/industrial demand is apparently being offset by what many in the market feel is classic safe haven support. Rebel forces are gaining control of the Libyan capital of Tripoli, which if successful may diminish platinum's recent safe-haven support.
