Coking Coal Price OutlookCoking coal prices have risen in recent days following sell-offs in many commodity markets, with supply disruptions in China and heavy rains in Queensland buttressing prices. On 9 February, coking coal traded at USD 198.0 per metric ton, which was 1.5% higher than on the same day last month. The price was up 2.6% on a year-to-date basis and was 18.6% higher than on the same day last year. Logistical issues in northwestern China continued to tighten the country’s market throughout January and early February, with railways unable to transfer coking coal from producers to users quickly enough. This supported overseas prices for the commodity, which was compounded by fears in early February that heavy rains disrupted some supply operations in Queensland, a major Australian port. However, Chinese efforts to keep a lid on domestic coal prices have kept coking coal prices from rallying further in early 2018.
