The platinum market has initially outperformed the gold and silver markets during early Monday trading. Platinum might be finding some support from news of lower platinum output from Anglo Platinum.

Japan released a GDP report that generally showed an ongoing contraction, which may be an early projection of weaker industrial platinum demand from Japanese automakers.
