Coal prices in the US and Europe are increasingly connected. The global coal economy's links are strengthening. Concerns are growing over the future direction of the market at a time of intense volatility. Soaring freight rates, uncertainty over demand growth outlooks and sustained supply problems in key regions have increased the potential benefits and risks for buyers, producers, traders and transporters of coal, heightening the need for more detailed information and in-depth analysis as we look to 2009 and beyond.
