Platinum Makes New Record Highs

Has anybody seen what Platinum has done lately? Over the past 2 days Platinum prices have exploded higher on increasing supply problems in South Africa.

Above is a daily chart of Platinum and below is a 7 year weekly chart. As you can see, platinum is one of the strongest metals right now. Platinum has also pulled gold and silver higher as all 3 metals tend to trend together. I personally feel gold is vulnerable to sell off, but I will NOT look to pick tops, I'll just remain on the sidelines and observe.

When South Africa gets its grid functioning again, watch that price come straight back down. It's a trap man! Wait for a BIG pullback, then buy the *normal* bull market in the metal.

Oh, and I just sent the spammer here about fifty emails. I'll keep flaming them every day until they stop spamming my favorite blogs. I invite you all to do the same.

Hi Lonley trader,

I agree with you about waiting for a big pullback...I wasn't suggesting that we should buy Platinum here...I just wanted to point out what Platinum was doing because most people probably weren't even aware that there was a huge rally taking place in this metal.

I'm glad you sent out the fifty emails to that spammer, he's so annoying. I allow everyone's comments to go through (good and bad I have nothing to hide) but I see I may have to start approving comments if the spamming continues...
