Platinum builds a rising wave structure. You are currently in an accumulative phase. You can spike it down, but we don't assume a permanent downward decline. The exchange rate may move in a double rising wave structure, and this wave structure will double, and the exchange rate will accelerate. The goal of the exchange rate is 1100 usd. Forward rise predicted.
Potential short trade.
