Coking Coal Price Outlook

Prices for coking coal have continued to rise in recent weeks over supply concerns in Australia. On 5 October, coking coal traded at USD 196 per metric ton, which was up 3.7% from the same day last month. The price was 22.9% lower on a year-to-date basis but was up 1.2% from the same day last year. Worries over Australian supply have supported prices over the last month. Following the dispute between railway operator Aurizon and the Queensland government, a fire broke out at the North Goonyella mine in late September which has sparked fears that output from the mine could be halted for a prolonged period. Moreover, given that coking coal is used to produce steel, Chinese demand will likely receive a boost from the recent announcement that anti-polluting measures for the steel industry will be relaxed.
