Platinum doesn't appear for many traders to be getting any substantial support from the positive shift in Euro zone developments early this morning. A series of minor production halts in Africa are not generally expected to benefit platinum prices today, and there are few expectations that the platinum market will benefit from indications that platinum may be cheap relative to gold prices. Many traders feel platinum has acted like a physical commodity market in need of fewer problems from the Euro zone and forward movement in the global economy. A private survey of UK Service Industries during October was at 51.3, lower than market expectations and may lift UK investment platinum demand.
