What's behind the unusual opening of an arbitrage for Colombian coal to India?

With Jacqueline Holman

February 23, 2016 12:52:16 EST (3:05)

Platts international coal editor Jacqueline Holman assesses an interesting development in the seaborne thermal coal market: the unusual opening of an arbitrage for Colombian coal to India. She examines the combination factors behind this, including 6,000 NAR South African Richards Bay FOB spot prices of over $50/mt FOB due to a tighter market for higher quality coal and falling dry bulk freight rates. Finally, Holman looks at the impact this emerging dynamic could have on the Atlantic and European markets.
