The platinum market is seeing some positive price action this morning despite weaker gold and silver prices. Some traders feel that platinum may be finding support from news of lower platinum production from Anglo-American Platinum, but other traders feel that July platinum might have trouble putting together an extensive recovery unless there is a considerable improvement in US economic activity or US stocks have a sharp end-of-week rally. Many traders feel that the direction of platinum prices today might be largely dictated by trading action in the US equity markets.
