European 2014 Coal Rises as Euro-Area Confidence Index Improves

Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- European coal for next year rose for the third day as euro-area consumer confidence increased to the highest in seven months in February.

Thermal coal for delivery in 2014 to Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Antwerp gained 20 cents, or 0.2 percent, to $99.30 a metric ton at 3:40 p.m. London time, according to broker data compiled by Bloomberg.

An index of household confidence in the currency bloc rose to minus 23.6 from minus 23.9 in January, the European Commission in Brussels said in an initial estimate today.
