Like most precious metals, the platinum price is affected by the demand and supply. Supply of platinum is notoriously tight and very, very difficult to affect according to demand. The metal is 30 times rarer than gold. More of it can be found on the moon and meteorites than is left to mine in the earth’s crust. And that which is there to be mined, is hard to reach as all of the easy stuff was mined long ago. Platinum is also primarily (70%) mined in South Africa. So, when looking at the five year platinum price chart try and identify any upset within South Africa (such as the mining strike) which would have affected the price.
Demand for platinum is growing as more industries realise its usefulness. It is primarily used in catalytic converters as it does a brilliant job in converting the hazardous gases into ones that are less so, in automobile engines. You will also be able to spot changes in car demand, when looking at the five year platinum price chart, so influential is the automotive industry on the metal’s demand.

But it is more than an expression of frustration. Deals are being done, […]
