Platinum Price OutlookPlatinum prices fell over the last month, in line with most other precious metals. On 29 November, platinum traded at USD 894 per troy ounce, which was 2.6% lower than on the same day last month. However, the price was up 12.6% on a year-to-date basis and was 9.0% higher than on the same day in 2018. The fall in palladium prices over the last month likely came amid slack safe-haven demand. Trade tensions have ebbed somewhat recently, with the U.S. and China engaged in intense negotiations over a “phase one” deal. Moreover, concerns over the health of the global economy have also appeared to dim slightly, thanks to a stronger-than-expected Q3 GDP reading in the U.S., and a rise in China’s October manufacturing PMI. On the supply side, South African mining union AMCU reached a wage deal with several platinum mines in November, following months of tough negotiations. This reduced worries over possible production outages, putting further downward pressure on prices.
