    Platinum is actually traded on the Nymex (strangely) and not Comex. It is a viable spread trade against Gold, but have you looked at the order book ? It is thinner than the Copper book !! Not good.
     
  3. Think that's thin, try palladium!

    It would be nice to do something along those lines with options, but you'd get eaten alive on entry/exit.
