Market Overview

China steam coal market dropped sharply amid coal majors’ ampler discount in the week ended March13th, 2015. BSPI (Bohai-rim Steam-Coal Price Index) for x kcal/kg
steam coal closed at CNYx/mt on March 11th, plunging by CNYx/mt from a week ago. The most active steam coal contract for May delivery closed at CNYx/mt on Friday, down by CNYx/mt from a week ago. BSPI had fallen for nine consecutive weeks with an accumulative drop of CNYx/mt or x%. This week’s decline, the deepest since August 2014, was mainly attributed to price cuts by large coal producers. Reportedly, Shenhua, Datong Coal and Yitai Coal all offered further discounts for March sales based on February’s favorable pricing. An expected halt of heating supply in the North added to the bearish mood. Stagnant trading activities were also testified by a sharp dip in national rail coal shipments, which tumbled by x% YoY and x% MoM to a five-year low of x million mt in February.

What comforts the market is the start of Spring maintenance on Daqin Rail Line, which typically lasts for 25-30 days, with a 3-4 hours’ transportation interruption each day. It is anticipated to reduce coal shipments to the four northern ports, namely, Qinhuangdao, SDIC Jingtang, Jingtang and Caofeidian Port, and thus to prop up the coastal coal markets. However, imported coal supplement and enhanced transportation in Shenshuo Line and Huanghua Port will offset effects from Daqin Line overhaul. Moreover, unfavorable economic indicators and environmental protection pressures have dampened consumption from the downstream, and it will take some time to address the overcapacity and revive demand. It is predicted that China steam coal market may remain on the decline in the short term amid supply glut, high stockpile and meager profits.
