Default Gold vs Platinum

Platinum Price / Oz $ 1,057.50

Gold Price / oz $ 1,338.85

This really historically upside down. However I cannot find much on this reversal. Should you buy Platinum or sell/short gold.

Go to Vegas. You at least get free drinks and some "comp" meals to go along with your gambling...

I don't have any specific reason as to one or the other trending between the two... but I know that platinum will typically follow technology, automotive, and a strong national economic reports.
Gold, in my mind, is largely predicated on "is the US dollar strong or is it weak." I don't know much further than that.

the metal market, not unlike the currency market is a good place to loose money, these things are very volatile and unpredictable and highly manipulated.
better to be in individual stocks and or indexed mutual funds, and dividend paying stocks are very good as you are paid real money for having the stock.... and taxed at a lower rate. Stocks are not for everyone, there is allot to learn, like how to take a loss when it makes some sort of sense, what to invest in,etc...
