Report summary

Warm weather and weak hydro generation kept seaborne demand from China strong this month. Low rank coal continues to be imported by Chinese utilities to maintain adequate stockpiles to meet any unexpected increases in power demand. But the Chinese government is trying to stymie the inflow of seaborne coal by increasing customs verifications at ports and preventing deliveries without permits. The increased red tape heightens the risk of weaker prices in Asian markets.
