Looking at the daily chart we notice yesterday Platinum failed to close above $837.0 after failing on Friday, showing lack of impulse to move to the higher trading zone. The price could head to the low end of the current trading zone at $820.0 -$837.0.

A close below the low end of the aforementioned trading zone could send the price even lower towards $804.0, however; the daily supports highlighted on the chart would be worth monitoring.

On the other hand, a close above the high end of the trading zone may cause the price to rally towards $852.0, although, the daily resistance levels mentioned on the chart need to be considered.
