  • Inflation is based on the CPI-U from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We use interpolation and extrapolation to present daily inflation indices; please see our original article, the Daily Inflation Calculator, for the full details on the methodology.
  • The platinum price quotes are credit the London Platinum & Palladium Market, and the API is provided through Quandl.
  • The prices are PM (2:00 PM local time) London Platinum & Palladium Market clearing prices quoted in dollars per ounce.

Platinum as an Investment

Platinum was first labeled as a precious metal in the 1700s, giving it a fair amount of time to be considered as investment quality - although it has nowhere near the storied history of silver and gold. Hopefully this data helps you make sense of the platinum market... or maybe it allows you to grasp a bit of the market before you invest in a certain expensive type of jewelry.

We, however, give no advice to the suitability of platinum in a portfolio - please consult an advisor to discuss if platinum is an appropriate option.
