Report summary

In January, thermal and metallurgical coal prices jumped 8% and 10% month-on-month, respectively. The largest driver of the price increases was strengthening demand. But the Chinese New Year holiday slowdown will start to play a role in February. We expect the downtime will have a greater impact on demand than supply. That said, we won't see any further increase in domestic prices in February.
