Growth of Illinois Basin coal sets stage for futures contract

With Andrew Moore

April 07, 2016 08:10:00 EST (3:02)

The IntercontinentalExchange on Monday launched a new US coal futures contract for the Illinois Basin, which is making up a growing portion of the total US coal market. Andrew Moore explains that adoption of the contract, which will settle against the monthly average of Platts' daily physical assessments for 11,800 Btu/lb FOB barge Illinois Basin coal, could be impacted by future production in the basin.
