However, you can track the price of platinum in real-time on our platinum pricing chart for instant, accurate data. We have a live price per ounce always available. This price is influenced by a number of factors, with supply being one of the most important. Platinum supply has a significant impact on the price per ounce in the United States.

These harder to reach deposits raise the cost of mining and could contribute to higher prices of platinum in the future.
What Determines the Platinum Price?
Each year, much less platinum is extracted from the ground than gold. Since it is significantly rarer, platinum generally fetches a higher price than gold during periods of stability.
As with other precious metals, the price of platinum is influenced by supply and demand. Automotive catalysts, which are used to reduce the harmfulness of pollutants, have the highest demand for platinum.
Following the automotive catalysts, the majority of demand is for catalysts used for petroleum and chemical refining, the computer sector, jewelry, and, of course, investing.

Most platinum comes from mines based in South Africa and Russia, which can lead to problems, such as the massive miner's strike in South Africa in 2014 or the Russia invasion of Ukraine. These two countries also have regular episodes of political unrest, which can impact mining and, ultimately, supply. If supply is affected, so is the price

Since it is viewed as a store of value, the spot price of platinum constantly fluctuates based on factors like:
Market supply and demand
Real or perceived inflation or deflation threats

How is the spot price of platinum calculated?
It is the front month futures contract traded on the futures exchanges that has the most volume that tends to determine the spot price of platinum today. Sometimes this contract can be the current month or it might be two or more months out in time. Generally the nearest contract has the least volume as it is closest to expiring and so positions may have already been rolled. So we look to the contract with the most volume as this is where participants are trading for either hedging or speculation purposes. This month is referred to as the spot month.
Platinum is priced and traded internationally in US dollars. It is the US dollar price of platinum that is referenced in the financial media.

We have conveniently done this for both Euros and pounds Sterling on this page.
What is the Platinum futures price?
The platinum futures price is the amount you will pay for an ounce of platinum delivered at a later date.
Unlike an OTC market, a futures exchange does not deal in the buying and selling of physical platinum bullion. Rather, the trades are intended to involve platinum-backed assets like platinum derivatives, which are used to hedge against risk or future price movements in the platinum market.
What's the right price to buy or sell platinum?
There is no such thing as the "right" price for buying or selling platinum. The platinum price reflects underlying influences in the platinum market, such as supply and demand dynamics. This makes platinum, along with other investment-grade precious metals, one of the few proven financial insurances that can protect your wealth during tough times.
Therefore, it is best to focus on the fundamentals in the platinum market such as its rarity, limited production, as well as the expected risks in the global economy when deciding to buy or sell.
