Matt Badiali has commented on the fact that it has been rough times for those who look to make their income from mining over the last six years. While it’s true that some metals have increased in value, many haven’t. 2018 could be the year that platinum sees some positive gains; even though it recently dwindled down to its lowest value in a couple of years. The reason for a potential come back in 2018 is due to the fact that supply will not be able to stay on par with the demand for platinum. Before today, a deficit, such as the one we’re about to experience, would be enough to make people sell their platinum invests, but since the price is so low, there is no reason for investors to sell. This should lead to a rise in value for platinum. Learn more at Seeking Alpha about Matt Badiali.
Matt Badiali believes that the other reason why platinum might surge back is because of the fact that the European economy is improving. Since diesel cars are the preferred method of travel in a lot of Europe, this should mean that more of them sale or are used in the coming year. Couple this with the fact that most remaining platinum mines are older, deeper, and close to being out of the precious metal, and you have the recipe for a comeback for platinum.
