The platinum market has given back a portion of last week's gains as fears of slowing in Spain and residual slowing fears toward the US economy are thought to have eroded market sentiment. Platinum may have found some limited support overnight from news of a minor platinum production setback at Aquarius Platinum. However, many traders feel that the platinum market has shown more interest in demand-side issues than supply-side issues and that any supportive production news will take a back seat to big picture macro economic issues this morning.
