European Coal for 2013 Falls as Oil Declines to Lowest in a Week

Oct. 3 (Bloomberg) -- European coal weakened as crude dropped to the lowest level in a week.

Thermal coal for delivery next year to Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Antwerp fell as much as 0.7 percent to $95.90 a metric ton, the lowest since July 13, according to broker data compiled by Bloomberg. The contract was at $96.10 at 2:23 p.m. London time.

Brent oil for November settlement on the ICE Futures Europe exchange in London dropped as much as $2.32, or 2.1 percent, to $109.25 a barrel as U.S. crude stockpiles climbed for a fourth week and a measure of China’s economy declined, signaling fuel demand may ease.
