Frequency of London Platinum Fixing:
From 1919 to 1968, the price of platinum was fixed only once a day at 11:00 am. Afterwards, a second platinum fixing was introduced at 3 p.m. to coincide with the opening of the US markets, because the London Platinum Pool collapsed in March 1968 so that the platinum price was no longer under control of the Bank of England.
Participants of London Platinum Fixing:
The original five founding members included N M Rothschild & Sons, Mocatta & Goldsmid, Pixley & Abell, Samuel Montagu & Co. and Sharps Wilkins. In 1919, the first few fixings were conducted by telephone. From then to 2004, the participants of London platinum fixing would hold a face-to-face meeting at the London offices of N M Rothschild & Sons in St Swithin's Lane. Since 5 May 2004 it takes place by a dedicated telephone conferencing system.
In 2004, N M Rothschild & Sons chose to quit the platinum trading and London platinum fixing, Barclays Capital took its place. In addition, the chairmanship of meeting, formerly held permanently by Rothschilds, now rotates annually between five members - the Bank of Nova Scotia-Scotia Mocatta, Barclays Capital, Deutsche Bank, HSBC Bank and Société Générale.
