Arbitrage between Gold and Platinum prices

Historically, the price of Gold exceeds the cost of Platinum. In moments when there is a deficiency in the market liquidity and the value of the precious metals drops, Platinum may fall faster than Gold or even become cheaper than yellow metal. Thus, there forms a negative spread between the prices of Platinum and Gold, which has always returned to positive territory.


The idea is to sale the futures contracts on Gold and buy another ones on Platinum with the spread in the order of USD 140 an ounce .

We expect that this idea could realize in 3 to 6 months, which allows Investor to expect the return of 25%-35% profit per annum.
