While platinum prices are higher this morning, some traders feel that they have not recovered as aggressively as silver and gold prices during the last 36 hours of trading. Other traders feel that platinum may have been pressured by news that at least two platinum mining companies avoided a 1-day nationwide South African strike yesterday. Given the apparent return to a risk-on market environment and seeing revived hopes for more supportive global central bank action ahead, positive global equity market action may become another element that could strengthen platinum prices later today.
