Sterling is continuing to rise against both the Dollar and Euro this week, and reached a 34-month high against the Dollar, putting additional pressure on metal prices here in the UK.

The Pound was trading as high as $1.39498 so far this week, a price last seen in April 2018, and marks the continuation of an impressive rally for Sterling in the past year.

The price of platinum has today hit a peak of £925.02 per ounce; the highest the precious metal has been since September 2013.

Platinum has gained £128.51 per ounce so far this month (16.40%) but around £110 of those gains have come in the past week, with several factors driving the latest platinum price surge.
