Hi, I asked myself the same question about silver... gold crashed, silver took a dip, but it's not that much of a crash... It could have fallen lower, being so much more volatile and so on... So silver is still holding on pretty well. Stiff resistance. But: platinum... wow, that's rock hard, keeping the level. Some oscillations, but there is no crash in platinum. Why do you think platinum is holding on so well? Personally I think (to put the question vice-versa): why did gold crash and the other metals only took weaker dips or didn't crash at all? Well, prolly because the gold market was indeed manipulated, ETF's liquidated and so on... Other opinions?
