Market Overview
European energy markets ended a generally bearish week with gains across the spectrum. Coal futures added another $0.50 in early trading and continued to push up through the day, leaving the benchmark Cal'20 API#2 contract firmly back above the $70-mark at c.$71.00/mt, a hefty rise of $2.60 on last night's marks. The physical market saw bid-offer spreads understandably track the paper higher and the DES ARA hub finally kicked into life after a period of abstinence with Aug DES Amst-Rott trading at $60.30/mt, followed by a Sep DES Amst-Rot cargo changing hands at $62.00/mt. Elsewhere, gas, power, carbon and oil markets all rebounded after recent losses and the reference front-month Brent contract added $0.20 to sit at around $62.15/bbl near close of play.

From the Asian Desk
The NEWC market ended the week without much activity and wide markets down the curve. Sep19 Phys NEWC was offered at $71.25/mt in 75kt ND, against a solitary bid of $62.95 in 100kt. Oct19 was bid at $75.25/mt and best offered and $76.50/mt before pulled back. In the NEWC Index market Sep was $-3.25 bid in 25kt whilst Oct was $-3.00 bid in 25kt. In the HA Aus 5500 market, Aug19 was offered at $52.50/mt while demand was at around $50.00/mt level with cape freight to South China reaching $15.00/mt. Elsewhere, INDO 4200 GAR weakened too with buying interest for Aug19 loading cargoes at around $34.00/mt on FOB G&G basis. The Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange (ZCE) main contract 1909 increased by 7.4CNY($1.07) to close at 586.0 CNY ($84.93). The vessel queue at PWCS currently stands at 17, while the turnaround time is at 4.0 days.

From the Met Desk
Screen numbers continued guiding the market downwards today with August Branded at $164.0 / $177.0 - the offer down a dollar from yesterday and down from $189.0 at the start of the week. September Branded was at $170 / $182.0 while new Unbranded offers also showed up today at $176.0 for August and $174.0 for September - the former bringing a $163.0 bid into play. This downward trend all week in HCC was set against a generally weaker steel complex with China's finished steel inventory rising and EU steel imports down 35% month on month for May according to Eurostat.
