From the port price, last week Bohai thermal coal price index fell by 6 yuan / ton , steam coal trading during panic sell has continued, and led to the Bohai Rim quality thermal coal each transaction prices continue to decline .
Coal Advisory Centre ambitious analyst Zhang Zhibin said that while steam coal origin index was flat, but the turnover situation port for two days , is expected this week, port coal prices will continue to decline . But it is worth noting that , although the price of thermal coal port in the downstream channel is still running , but the coastal coal freight rates have been rising for four consecutive weeks , and the increase was widening , maritime transport coal more obvious signs of improvement .
    In August 7th to the 13th tariffs , for example, according to seaborne shipping freight index OCFI released data show that during the period of seaborne coal freight index ring to accelerate upward , to close at 792.57 points, weekly chain rose as high as 6.83 percent .

    Information analyst Liu Shanshan said coal freight coal prices tend to be a leading indicator , which indicates thermal coal consumer demand rebounded. Bohai thermal coal stocks seems to confirm this speculation .
