Today's Gold to Platinum ratio is invitation for new Platinum investors
31 December 2021 close: At the close of 2021, Platinum still appears slow out of the gates again whilst traditional investors avoid the metal or simply shy away. This may create a further sense of unjustified negative investment climate and taker longer again to recover from its deep price levels in recent years. We see no immediate technical reason to go along with this weaker Platinum scenario in spite of risk weight trends pointing upward. We remain very optmistic for a strong recovery towards and possibly beyond equilibrium which we define, for now, as the 50 year average price of 0.8950 for the Gold to Platinum ratio.
17 December close: The current price is an invitation for investors that do NOT own Platinum but just gold or silver to diversify some of that into Platinum. If this ratio value also turns the medium term weekly trend down again we anticipate a slightly larger Platinum allocation. We still expect Platinum to strongly outperform Gold over the next few years on the back of a few serious hedge positions in an industrial platinum market with much less liquidity. No Change to current slightly overweight Platinum allocation.
