Coking Coal Price OutlookAlthough prices for Australian coking coal dropped below USD 200 per metric ton in the middle of January, they rebounded by late-January despite signs of an economic moderation in China. On 8 February, coking coal traded at USD 201 per metric ton, which was 0.2% higher than on the same day last month. The price was down 6.4% on a year-to-date basis and was 9.8% lower than on the same day last year. Chinese authorities reimposed an import restrictions on coking coal at various ports in the northeast after imports exceeded expectations in January. This followed import limitations implemented in November and December, which meant that cargo could not be unloaded until January. Despite the bans, Chinese demand for Australian coking coal has been underpinned by higher prices for locally produced coal.
