The platinum market has posted moderate gains this morning, which some traders feel may be surprising considering weaker price action seen with other industrial commodity markets. Some traders suggest that platinum may be finding carryover support from recent gains in gold prices, in addition to support from many spread traders who feel that platinum may be cheap relative to gold prices. Euro zone Retail Sales during September were down 0.7%, weaker than expectations and may indicate weaker jewelry platinum demand during the near future.
