2017's worst-returning precious metal becomes hedge fund darling
Published: 22 Jan 18
After lagging behind other precious metals last year, platinum is finally outperforming, and hedge funds are taking notice. Money managers increased their bets on a rally for platinum, a commodity used in pollution-control devices for cars.

The metal’s strong correlation to gold is also providing support as a weaker dollar propels alternative assets higher.

The largest union at Cerrejon, Colombia's top thermal coal mine, was set to meet with the company on Friday to hear a new salary and benefits offer before deciding whether to hold a vote on a possible strike. A work stoppage at the Cerrejon mine, which belongs in equal parts to BHP Billiton, Anglo American and Glencore and produces about 37% of Colombia's total output, could reduce production and overseas sales from the world's fifth-largest coal exporting nation. Production and exports at Cerrejon, which produced 31.7-million tonnes of coal in 2017, fell for a third straight year as heavy rainfall affected operations, the mine's owners said this month.
