Bloomberg reported that yesterday, platinum futures rose to $1,363.80 per ounce, their highest price in 10 weeks, as a result of speculation that a worldwide economic rebound will increase demand for the metal.

As quoted in the market news:

Platinum jumped as much as 3.8% to a two-week high at 8:20 a.m. New York time in the most-active trading of the session.
