The Johnson Matthey base prices are the company’s quoted prices for our customers of wholesale quantities of platinum group metals set by our trading desks in the USA, Hong Kong and the UK.  The price reflects Johnson Matthey’s current view of prevailing market prices and may take into account Johnson Matthey’s view on current market bids and offers.  The price is for metal in sponge form with minimum purities of 99.95% for platinum and palladium, and 99.9% for rhodium, iridium and ruthenium.

How are the monthly averages calculated?

Month Average is the average of the prices in each column.

Month Average for all time zones is calculated as follows:

  1. The sum of the daily prices is divided by the number of prices set during that day to give a daily average.

  2. The daily averages are added together and divided by the number of days on which prices were set during the month.
