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.

    • I'll try one last time to get my point across, this time without any stats or charts, simply a link to a thread on Reddit with people describing their experiences of getting back into running post Covid. These are the people that aren't in the death stats. You will probably say that they are just "random people on the internet". Well I am part of this community and know several of them in the thread.  I also know of two others who are experiencing affects long after recovering from Covid- one still gets out of breath after walking up stairs (was previously very fit) months later and another, a semi-pro singer who literally can't sing anymore. @Caseynotes Keep posting your memes and **** but be aware that you contributing to people taking covid less seriously and ultimately ending up like those in this thread:
