Platinum comment

30 July 2021 Platinum performancd has of course been a little disappointing against our forecast but hasn't yet failed. It is still well up from from the mid 2020 investment level and still has a mixed short term outlook. Our objectives to reach long equilibrium against gold and then pass through it are still very much risk on and we confidently stick with our long term physical Pt position.

16 July 2021 Platinum USD again wants to challenge the long term trend. Quarterly still points down following a sharp risk weight correction compared with a relatively minor price correction. Risk weight is expected to run up closer to 90-100% before reaching a first top. We cannot exclude another run down, although less likely, and if it does the technical picture is still bullish for medium term weekly and softer for Daily which can delay the main trend continuation into the 2k area. Still Hold.

Gold/Platinum Ratio Charts

Daily Ratio 30 July

The current cross rate is delivering a fairly overbought situation. This could last a bit longer but a return to a weaker Gold/Platinum ratio is very much on the cards.

Weekly Ratio 30 July

As mentioned in the previous update two weeks ago, bearish possible divergence bearish divergence becoming visible soon is even more likely at the July close.

Monthly Ratio 30 July

Monthly is clearly not confirming the stronger shorter term chart reading making monthly a non leading indicator.I.e it could easily turn back down again as a more likely short term and medium term top is confirmed during August.

Qrtly Ratio 30 July

In spite of a fairly sizeable downtrend correction, Quarterly risk weight is just pausing the downtrend whilst the the Gold/Platinum ratio has advanced quiate a bit. Hold Platinum in equal quantity to Gold.

Daily Ratio 16 July

Friday's move was unexpectedly large and sudden following a stronger dollar across the board. Platinum lost 3% more than gold which felt like a disappointment, but doesn't move our longer term targets. We may need more patience during this longer correction. Risk weight is expected to follow its typical correction trend towards the 10-15% level.

Weekly Ratio 16 July

Weekly risk weight can easily create a bearish divergence going into August with a higher correction high. Risk is also that it will not make that higher high and turn down again. Either way the technical position is 'Hold' in favor of long term Platinum strength.

Monthly Ratio 16 July

The visible Monthly v-shaped risk weight bottom is less likely to be finished on the downside like it was in 2010. The logic in 95% of primary trend direction cases is that monthly develops bullish divergence at least once and possibly more often. Following this principle removes the risk of bottom picking at a too early stage. We look to let this market run its technical course, besides the fundamental reason to use the now much cheaper platinum to clean combustion engines. Platinum is traditionally the richest and physically the heaviest of precious metals.

Qrtly Ratio 16 July

Quarterly risk weight is still down and is a leading indicator in the current primary trend towards equilibrium. It may even take a few more years to finish the present move. Hold Platinum in equal quantity to Gold.
