CIF ARA year-ahead thermal coal swaps slip to record lows

September 09, 2015 (5:59 mins)



Europe-delivered CIF ARA year-ahead thermal coal swaps have slipped to record lows below $51/mt, with a number of factors weighing on the market. Weak macroeconomics and crude oil have particularly weighed on the back of the forward curve, resulting in a backwardated structure. Platts thermal coal editors Jaime Concha and Jacqueline Holman examine the factors pressuring CIF ARA paper prices and what has caused the curve to move into backwardation.


The following Platts assessments were discussed in this podcast:
Price Date
Thermal Coal Forward Curve ARA Prompt Q4-15 $52.2/mt 09/07/2015
Thermal Coal Forward Curve ARA Prompt Cal-16 $50.55/mt 09/07/2015
