Christian told Mineweb in an interview that the downward movement in the platinum price over the last few weeks was technically driven as new resources funds and hedge funds were simply selling because the platinum price had started to decline.He said there were no macro economic reasons for the technical sellers' actions, nor were they acting on price fundamentals. The sellers of platinum were following a "gut feeling" and price charts that prompted them to sell when the price declined and to buy when the price increased.
