The platinum market continues to find support from fears of tightening supply due to an ongoing strike at an Impala mine. In addition, the platinum market is starting to see forecasts of supply tightness developing later this year. Those projections may be lending some additional support to platinum prices, which recently have mostly been dominated by big picture macro economic issues. At least in the near term, fears of more lost supply at the Impala mine could help platinum ignore the pressure from sluggish outside market factors.
