European Coal for Next Year Falls to Lowest Level in 11 Weeks

Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- European coal for delivery next year decreased to the lowest level in more than 11 weeks.

Thermal coal for delivery next year to Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Antwerp fell as much as 0.3 percent to $96 a metric ton, the lowest level since July 16, according to broker data compiled by Bloomberg. The contract traded 0.2 percent lower at $96.15 a ton as of 2:08 p.m. in London.

Deutsche Bank AG cut its European coal-price forecasts by an average of $10 to $90 a metric ton in 2013 and $95 in 2014 to reflect lower European import prices, driven in part by reduced U.S. coal use in power generation, the bank said today in a research report.
