Imagine Meeting a Platinum Shark

You probably have an image in your head of a heading out into the ocean for your winter Caribbean vacation, or the Jaws exhibit at Universal Studios, or even walking through the Shark tank tubes at the aquarium. And whether it is a fake shark or there is 6 inches of tempered glass between you and him, you are a bit fearful. Well I have a different platinum Shark in mind, but it is equally fearful to investors. The chart for the Platinum ETF, $PPLT, below is in the process of completing a Shark Harmonic pattern, and what is worse it is bearish. Take a look.

This chart appears to be nearing a resistance zone at 169.30 and many would play a breakout over that as a significant upside play. But the Bearish Shark suggests that a Potential Reversal Zone exists just over head between 168.75 and 171.473. What is more even if it gets through that top at 171.73 the extended Reversal Zone continues on to 175.71. It would take a move over 176 and then continuation for a Harmonic trader top give up on the reversal. So what do you see in Platinum, a pending break out? Or a Bearish Shark Reversal?

Thanks to Rob Wong (@Atl_Dad on Twitter and Stocktwits) for introducing me to the Shark Harmonic pattern.
