We have seen three major reports out for London’s Platinum Week from Metals Focus, GFMS and the WPIC. They all offer comprehensive analyses in text, tabular form and graphical content of various aspects of the markets and they are a hugely valuable resource for followers of the pgms sector. There are definite differences of opinion on the relative supply and demand scenarios for platinum in particular in 2015, but all three analyses are predicting supply deficits ahead for the two major pgms, but on past performance such seemingly strong fundamentals may have little impact on prices.
The latest to report was Metals Focus with its inaugural Platinum & Palladium Focus 2016, a comprehensive 78 page long analysis of the platinum and palladium markets. In many respects it appears to this observer to offer the most realistic appraisal of the markets and likely price performance for the two major platinum group metals (pgms).
A couple of articles I’ve published on Sharpspixley.com on platinum group metals resulting from the release of these three very comprehensive reports on the sector are linked here:
Platinum and palladium supply deficits ahead, but will this impact prices?
Is platinum in surplus or deficit? Reports contradict.
