Platinum vs Gold

The Platinum price has fallen 12 of the last 13 days

Gold has also fallen off the proverbial cliff since tracing out a weekly reversal (see my previous post re: Gold)

While both seem very oversold now I feel a better trade exists looking at the Gold/Platinum ratio.

 

The ratio between Gold and Platinum during this recent period has fallen sharply.

It is currently just above .81

That is it takes just over .81 of an ounce of Gold to Buy an ounce of Platinum. 

I think this is overdone and believe Platinum will close this gap from here.

As such I am Buying Platinum and selling Gold expecting this ratio will climb.

I am putting a stop at .78

 

What do you think guys?

 

Cheers,

 

JB.

Hi 

 

Hopefully you avoided that stop - I see gold has put in a decent rally over my session, which might be a positive. 

I can see the thinking behind your strategy, especially with gold getting a bit of a hiding recently - hope it goes well.

Hi jb,

 

Don't let me corrupt your successful strategies/MM - but does this trade need a stop?  I can imagine that, given time, it should come good.  Easier for me to say as I guess you've done all the hard work for us, and if we get in now we'd have more room to play. 

 

I can imagine, as a sort of hedge trade, they'd stay in their current correlation until one breaks out (as you've predicted) and then things will change quickly as the correlation changes.  Hang in there anyway...

The trade has certainly turned for the better in the last few days.

 

HOWEVER - Gold and Platinum both reversed to the upside on a weekly basis last week after the move we saw on friday.

 

As such I am keeping the long on Platinum but I can't stay short Gold given the technical move.

 

 

Cheers,

 

JB.

    • As Andrew Bailey and co gear up for their next BoE decision, will it be enough to drive the pound higher against the dollar, or could recession worries return? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Pound sterling Bank GBP/USD Central bank United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What do markets expect from the Bank of England meeting? This Thursday sees the latest Bank of England (BoE) decision. Markets expect the bank to raise UK rates by 50 basis points (bps), a similar amount to the ECB. What is the context? In an interesting reversion to early 2022, when the BoE seemed to lead the way in hawkishness, this week’s crop of central bank meetings points to a Fed rate increase of just 25bps, while Threadneedle Street pushes on with another 50bps hike, as will the European Central Bank. As with most central bank meetings these days, it is the comments around the decision and the voting pattern that will be more important. A more hawkish caucus might emerge, based on the improved (or at least, less bad) economic outlook that has appeared of late. But the outlook for the second half of the year remains gloomy, at best. Markets continue to expect at least one 25bps rate cut by the end of the year, but the bank will not want to give too much credit to this argument, since it is aware that inflation remains solidly above forecasts. GBP/USD outlook Momentum in GBP/USD has stalled at the December highs of $1.24, with little sign that the price wishes to push on ahead of the BoE meeting. Clearly a more hawkish BoE would be needed, but one that is not too hawkish that it then makes markets fret about the impact on the already-tough UK economic outlook. It will be a tough balance to strike, and if markets start to worry about a deeper UK recession, then we could see GPB/USD push back towards $1.20 and the 200-day SMA. Source: ProRealTime
