Global thermal coal price update August 2018 – impact from recent currency depreciations

Report summary

Over the last few weeks, there has been a significant appreciation in the value of the US dollar against a basket of key coal producing countries. Devaluating currencies at key coal exporting countries reduces the costs of export coal in US dollar terms and makes those coals more competitive to the US exporters. The stronger US dollar also caused issues for coal importers as well, since it reduced the buying power in countries that also experienced currency depreciations. What impact will this have on global benchmark prices in the short-term?
