The best feature of platinum is that it isn't affected by wear and isn't affected much by corrosion, making it an ideal material for jewelries or even watches. Platinum is also largely used in the automobile industry, as it is quite useful in vehicle emissions control, serving as a catalyst for the process. Platinum also have practical electrical uses, laboratory uses and also chemotherapy uses just recently. With the wider range of use for platinum, it's no wonder that investors are eyeing the metal for long-term investment decisions. While platinum can be highly unstable for investing for the short-term, since its uses are mainly defined by supply and demand, many experts believe that investing in the metal for the long-term can yield better returns.
