The platinum market has posted large gains this morning and has risen to the highest price levels since May 22nd. Like the rest of the precious metals markets, platinum appears to be finding support from European Central Bank easing hopes, and some traders feel that a moderate portion of an easing move from the European Central Bank might already be factored into platinum prices. More than likely, platinum prices will find additional support in the event that the Federal Reserve takes action, because that event may not be as widely anticipated as near-term easing action from the European Central Bank.
