Looking at the daily chart we notice at the start of this week, Platinum failed to move higher to the trading zone $820.0 – $837.0. Today, the price pushed higher breaking above the low end of this zone.

Therefore, a close above the low end may cause a rally towards the high end, nonetheless, the weekly resistances marked on the chart need to be kept in focus. Further close above the high end could see the price even higher towards $852.0. The weekly resistance levels mentioned on the chart would be worth monitoring in this scenario.

In turn, a failure in closing above the low end of the aforementioned trading zone might embolden the sellers to send the price towards $804.0, and if Platinum closes below this level the price might head towards $796.0, although; the weekly resistance level highlighted on the chart should be considered.
