Physical Platinum is a key risk diversifier
13 May 2022 close Platinum remains one of our key risk diversifiers as the outlook for a return to it former President of Metals status still holds. As we show in the Platinum ratio blogs there is no reason to not see a return to at the least the average long term ratio (equilibrium) some time in the next few years or much sooner probably. Our Euro based position held fairly strongly due to a weaker Euro versus USDollar. And in spite of suspected Bullion banks manipulation in these markets, the technical picture speaks for itself. Although Platinum may still experience pressure, Platinum does still looks the strongest medium and longer term of all the metals and we are totally happy to retain our 1/3rd allocation.
01 April 2022 close Platinum leading indicators are the low risk readings for Platinum versus Gold and Silver. The core USD market appears to have lost it completely with investors, yet this strongest peer within the precious metals space is holding its own trading with sharp corrections around the $1000 mark. A positive sense of direction can be found in nthe monthly risk reading where price is now 50% above the March 2020 covid low whilst risk weight has dropped to around 25%. With Daily already in low risk ground and weekly falling into support too, this is a reading that shouldn't worry us. No Change to our 1/3rd platinum metal allocation.
25 February 2022 close Platinum actually performed slightly better this year with a 10% gain thusfar since the start of 2022 rallying from 950 to 1050, beating both Gold and Silver performance after a longer stint of underperformance. The charts tell us that the price pressure in Platinum appears to building momentum for a larger future advance. Our alloction is still slight overweight relative to Gold and we intend to maintain this ratio until further notice as explained in this week's Gold/Platinum and Platinum/Silver ratio blogs.
