Platinum prices tend to gain around the start of the year on industrial demand purchases that take place at the start of the year. However, platinum has a weak seasonal period in the summer that is also pronounced.

Over the last 15 years, platinum has fallen nearly 75% of the time with average falls of 5.86% between August 6 and October 5. The largest fall was in 2008 when platinum fell 38.73%. Will platinum see a summer of weakness again this year?

Major Trade Risks: Previous seasonal patterns do not necessarily repeat themselves each year.
