Market Overview
The coal market saw a quiet end to an already lacklustre week's trading. Futures lost around $0.70 in early trading and never looked like recovering, leaving the benchmark Cal'20 API#2 contract down at $67.00/mt. What action there is in the physical market was centred on the FOB Newcastle hub where prompt prices remain stubbornly above $80/mt compared to delivered cargoes being offered into Europe in the mid-$50s/mt range. Elsewhere, bearish sentiment reigns supreme across the rest of the European energy complex with gas, power, carbon and oil markets all losing value and front-month Brent slipping $0.60 to sit at $67.45/bbl near close of play.

From the Asian Desk
The NEWC market did not see much change on values today though we did register one screen transaction. Aug19 traded at $81.00/mt in 25kt, same as last done, and the month was offered at $81.75/mt on the follow. July19 was inverted by $0.25/mt on size with a bid at $81.75/mt in 25k on screen while offered in 75ktND, before the bid pulled. In the HA Aus HA5500 market, buying interest for Jun19 loading cape size cargos was seen at $57.00/mt FOB level. The Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange (ZCE) main contract 1909 decreased by 4.0 CNY($0.58) to close at 589.6 CNY ($85.20). The vessel queue at PWCS currently stands at 4, while the turnaround time is at 1.9 days.

From the Met Desk
The week ended quietly with the market framed by a June Branded offer at $205.0 and an August Branded bid at $198.0. The offer level drifted lower over the week attracting a best bid of $203.0 for July delivery yesterday, but still no traded level was found as the FOB market continued to drift.
