The run in platinum shares has been phenominal over the last quarter,reminding me of earlier days where one had only to buy plats and hold not trading at all in other shares over a couple of years to make a fortune(which i did in the early nineties).Those were the days before computer trading which leads me at least to panic faster and sell when i should hold.i dunno if being so close to the market is an advantage as we are exposed to all kinds of influences these days!I drew up a watch list on the 16 DEC 2006 of platinum shares.On the 26 Mar 2007 the gains for basically were as follows:See reply to this blog!

True,although i've learnt from expenience that gold only does well during an initial upswing after a long bear market!now days their movements are furter muddied by the uranium thing ,so past patterns are a-changing.

True that! I still believe that no matter how positive the gold story Plats will outperform.

What about IMP's current run? Stochiastics giving sell, RSI overbought. Engulfing black given on candle chart on closing yesterday.Good chance to go short? (Especially given yesterday's news).

as for me, got into AMS (AMSSBE) just after the first dip end Feb, and made a tidy profit of 20%. Problem is, the jitters in the market made me jittery too, so kept exiting when I should have held until target! then playing catch up. would have done close to 90% (as at day or two ago, today softer again) if I had taken profit at my original target price). Moral of the story is, stick with your strategy, dont be fooled (again and again) into "panicked" buying or selling. i agree that Platinum is still in a very healthy bull cycle, just take a look at simon's beloved primary trend indicator (30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 60 MAs )...
