US coal markets fail to heat up, despite dropping temperatures



The arrival of cold temperatures hasn't translated to higher prices for US coal, one of the primary fuels for keeping the country warm throughout the winter. Andrew Moore, managing editor of Platts Coal Trader, and Jeff McDonald, associate editor, evaluate why the markets for Powder River Basin and Central Appalachian coal are lower than last winter, as well as how stockpile concerns, rail congestion and coal-fired power plant retirements are shaping trading.


The following Platts assessment was discussed in this podcast:
Price Date
