The platinum market enters Tuesday's trading just above the mid point of Monday range and close to $42 an ounce above last week's lows. While platinum has found some support from classic safe-haven conditions throughout the month of August, some traders feel that the market might be ready to find some fresh direction from macro economic data points during the near future. Euro zone Economic Sentiment during August was 98.3, lower than forecasts and may reflect weaker industrial platinum demand from European automakers.
