    Not sure how you read that into the post, 50% Gold, 50% Silver outperformed a gold,silver,platinum mix. One day when I get time I'll do a more detailed analysis of various % mixes over various timeframes to see if there is any clear optimal mix.

    Bron according to your report :

    Investing in gold alone was the worst strategy

    Strategy Return

    Gold Only 214%
    Silver Only 302%
    Platinum Only 226%
    50% Gold, 50% Silver 258%
    The Aussie 236%

    So Platinum outperformed gold !
    Platinum mixed with Au and Ag outperformed Gold !

    If you look at the last 18 months Pt/Pd has way outperformed gold and silver or any combo of these.

    Maybe I'll cherry pick some other dates to prove my point :)

    With palladium I'd want to watch out for premiums, coin premiums are too high I think.

    What's first of all important is: how much money you have to invest and when you get in.

    Well getting in now is better than 2 years ago. When Pt was north of 2k. I am not saying invest everything in Pt.

    Watch this and think - is there a solution ? Is Pt likely to spike up or down? The mines are banking on a 6 week stockpile. Would you ?

    Add this to the smog and pollution in China and you tell me if Pt and Pd are poor investments. They can't shove a paper certificate up a cars rear end and expect it to work. Unfortunately people are more easily fooled than cars. :)

    I'm seeing some of the Pt bulls cranking up their retail purchases again.
