Platinum DAILY PRICE CHART (May 11, 2017 – JUn 12, 2019) Zoomed OUT
Looking at the daily chart we notice platinum failed to close lower since Jun 6 creating noticeable wicks and highlighting hesitation from the bears to send the price lower. Therefore, if the price closes above $817.0 it could mean a rally towards $844.8. However, the weekly resistance level at $822.0 and the Jun 5 high at $833.3 need to be watched closely.
On the flipside, a close below the Jun 10 low at $796.9 may lead the price towards $780.0. Although, the support level at the May 30 low at $788.5 is worth monitoring.

Platinum Four-HOUR PRICE CHART (May27, 2019- JUN 12, 2019)
Looking at the four- hour chart we notice platinum rallied at the start of the week and carved out yesterday a higher low at $800.7. The price created after noticeable wicks followed with two bearish Doji patterns highlighting weakness in the bullish momentum.
A break below yesterday’s low mentioned above might lead the price towards the weekly low at $788.5. However, the support level at Jun 10 trough (weekly low) should be kept in focus.
In turn, if the bullish momentum resumes then a break above the weekly resistance at $822.0 could send the price higher towards the June 4 peak (the monthly high) at $833.3. The daily resistance at $827.0 need to be considered.
