[Video] Gold and Silver Continue to Outshine Platinum

It was a strong close for gold and silver yesterday, and buying has continued during the Asian session overnight. Yet platinum remains the weaker metal of its group.

Gold 5


Platinum is close to breaching our invalidation point from Monday’s video, yet it is still a potential short candidate should sentiment turn against metals, as it has been an underperformer these past few months and lacks the bullish qualities of gold and silver. So, we check out all three metals in today’s video to highlight key levels for each market.

As for yesterday’s video, Morgan Stanley (MS) failed to hold onto earlier gains, after gapping to fresh multi-year highs at yesterday’s open. Closing the day near the 88.88 breakout level it is touch and go as to whether 88.32 support can hold, given the two-bar reversal (dark cloud cover pattern) at the highs. Yet whilst the near-term bias is under siege, technically the daily chart remains bullish above the 84.32 swing low, so it really comes down to timeframe as to how one manages their risk from here.
