Platts to Launch Arbitrage Assessments for China PLV, Met Coke Indexes


Effective September 21, 2016, S&P Global Platts launches three arbitrage indicator weekly assessments based on existing China Premium Low Vol and metallurgical coke indices. The assessments are:

  1. A Premium Low Vol (PLV) Hard Coking Coal (HCC) CFR China (equivalent) assessment that would be a net-forward from the existing domestic China coking coal assessment, including various costs. Following market feedback, Platts has ascertained market demand for greater visibility on the price differential between the PLV HCC CFR China assessment and its domestic China equivalent. The assessment will be published on an outright basis and as a price differential to the PLV HCC CFR China price on Wednesday.
  2. A differential between the CFR Jingtang (equivalent) port stocks assessment and the PLV HCC CFR China assessment. Following market feedback, Platts has ascertained market demand for greater visibility on the price differential between seaborne cargo prices and the port stock market.
  3. A metallurgical coke Platts FOB North China (equivalent) assessment that would be a net-forward from the existing domestic DDP China coke assessment, including various costs. Platts has ascertained market demand for greater visibility on the price difference between domestic coke and China export values. This assessment would be normalized for payment terms, logistics cost, exchange rate and specifications to FOB North China basis. The assessment will be published on an outright basis and as a price differential to the Platts 64/62% CSR Metallurgical Coke FOB North China assessment.
