Could Platinum be signaling a breakout in PMs?

April 10, 2019

Jordan Roy-Byrne, Founder and Editor of The Daily Gold shares his thoughts on Platinum’s move higher, Gold vs the miners, and what he is looking for in metals stocks. Platinum has historically lead gold at some major bottoms so if we continue to see some upward moves, and breaks above recent peaks the bullish argument could build some momentum. However on the metals stock side we are still seeing stocks move slowly. In no way bearish we might be in this trading range for a while longer.

      April Silver’s delivery demands fell by one contract during yesterday’s trade. I watched the sale occur, priced at 15.26 (a buyer and seller agreed), yet Comex closed the April Contract at 15.168, a fake settling price at the exchange.

    Don’t bet on Platinum miners boosting supply on price surge
    Bloomberg News | a day ago

    “The recent jump in platinum-group metals prices is boosting miners’ profits, but that doesn’t mean they are likely to increase supply anytime soon, according to the world’s No. 1 producer.”

    “Still, new supply will be limited. It takes five to seven years to open a new mine from scratch and there are other constraints to consider like processing capacity and the availability of water, the CEO said in an interview. While there are some expansion projects underway, that supply is already accounted for in market estimates”

    “Any new production will probably replace declines elsewhere, rather than expanding total supply, which is forecast to remain flat over the next decade”

      Charles, you likely got positioned in a great spot and I wished I had more dry powder reserves, but I’m fully deployed at this point.

      Here is an interesting editorial and analysis on Group 10 Metals that may be of interest to those following the Platinum/Palladium/Nickel/Copper space:


      Group Ten Metals Is Systematically Unveiling One Of The Most Compelling, Gigantic PGE-Ni-Cu Projects In Years – And It’s Right Under Your Nose.

      Mar. 4, 2019 – SvenGP

      “Group Ten Metals makes a compelling case of an analogy between the Bushveld District in South Africa, the world’s largest producer of platinum elements, and the Stillwater District in Montana.”

      “Both, Stillwater and Bushfeld, are well-known for their ultra high-grade Reefs, but unlike Stillwater Bushfeld has also seen the development of much larger, polymetallic and bulk mineable deposits.”

      “Group Ten believes that the Stillwater district hosts a similar potential. The role model for it’s new approach to exploring Stillwater is Ivanhoe’s discovery of the Platreef project.”

    /ES on the 2 hour hour chart put in a Triple top at the round number of 2900….Seems clear that some folks see that as resistance…but it was overnight trading with associated light volumns… as per usual, no clarity…but could be a logical place in retrospect to have pulled da market plug and some dinero off the old table…The 5 hour chart still has an AB=CD target up at 2929 which IS troubling if short but the daily chart has completed a 1.25 expansion up of its AB=CD up
