April platinum has reached up to the highest price levels since November 16th during overnight trading. With news of lower platinum production from a South African platinum producer, and suggestions from Aquarius management that they will continue to face problems in maintaining their platinum production levels, some traders feel that the platinum market will start out this morning with a slightly positive supply side outlook. Overall macro economic conditions could also provide support for platinum today, as currency market action is supportive and equities are showing some initial gains.
