The addition of the contracts to the globalCOAL trading screen, which went live on October 17, came about following feedback from globalCOAL Market Members that they would like the opportunity to trade these products on screen alongside existing contracts.

 “We are already seeing interest in both contracts,” said Tracy Vowel, Head of Front Office at globalCOAL.  “We are pleased to have been able to respond to Market Member feedback and continue to develop the range of contracts available on the trading screen, as well as other products and services to suit the interests of the Market.”
