European 2013 Coal Increases Most in Month on Barclays Outlook

Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- European coal for 2013 delivery increased the most in almost a month after Barclays Plc raised its forecast for the fuel.

Thermal coal for delivery next year to Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Antwerp added 1.4 percent to $96.60 a metric ton as of 12:30 p.m. in London, according to broker data compiled by Bloomberg. That’s the contract’s biggest advance since Nov. 23.

Coal in northwest Europe may average $95 a ton next year, 2.2 percent higher than the bank’s previous estimate, as new power plants add some 4 million tons to German demand, Trevor Sikorski, an analyst at the bank in London, said today in an e-mailed research note.

Bloomberg tracks information from ICAP Plc, GFI Group Inc., Marex Spectron Group Ltd., Credit Suisse Group AG, IHS McCloskey, Tradition Financial Services and Tullett Prebon Plc.
