Platinum gains ground as dollar slips

Platinum prices tilted higher in American trade as the dollar index lost ground, following earlier data from the US, the world's largest economy, and after the release of the tax reform bill in the Senate, which was quite different from the draft being considered in the House of Representatives. 

 

As of 03:20 GMT, platinum rose 0.18% to $933.36 an ounce from the opening of $931.70, while the dollar index shed 0.04% top 94.82 from the opening of 94.87. 

 

Earlier US data showed unemployment claims rose to 239 thousand in the week ending November 4, above the expected 232K, and compared to the previous reading's 229K, while continuing claims rose 17 thousand to 1.901 million from 1.884 million in the week ending October 21.
