globalCOAL launches gC HCCA index

globalCOAL is pleased to announce that it has launched the publication of its gC HCCA index.  The index will provide the market with a new tool for pricing met coal. Using a transparent methodology, including only screen-based trades, bids and offers, we look forward to active participation from the industry over the coming months.


Existing gC data subscribers and Market Members will have visibility of this index data as part of their existing gC data package. The index calculator including the final index values and the historical data, can be accessed by logging in to the “Tools” section on the client zone of the gC website. From today, the daily Coal Market Report will include the gC HCCA index values.


Visitors to the globalCOAL website, who are currently not licensed to use gC’s data, can view the latest index and the methodology here.  If you are interested in finding out more by obtaining access to the index calculator and to be permissioned to use the data for internal or external purposes, just email our data sales team at,  who will be happy to get in touch with you to discuss your data requirements.
