Platinum price daily chart - 20-06-19 Zoomed Out

Looking at the daily chart we notice the buyer’s intention to move Platinum to the higher trading zone at ($817.0 – $845.0) in order to test the neckline of a double bottom pattern residing at $833.3.

Therefore, if Platinum closes above the lower end of trading zone, it might rally towards the higher end. The price could head towards $877.0 contingent on remaining above the aforementioned neckline. See the chart for the weekly resistance zones and levels that need to be kept in focus.

In turn, If Platinum fails to close above the lower end, this could see the price trading even lower towards $780. However, the daily and weekly supports at $796.0 and $788.5 should be watched along the way.

Please add a description for the image.
