GlobalCoal launches ARA FOB Barge Index, swap product

Traders will also be able to trade swaps against the GlobalCoal ARA Index on GlobalCoal’s online trading platform using a new swap product launched off the back of the new index.

The new Amsterdam/Rotterdam/Antwerp index will be based on the same methodology as GlobalCoal’s existing Richard’s Bay (RB®) and Newcastle (NEWC®) indices.

The formula-based index will use data based on firm bids and offers and trades in the Phys ARA (FOB Barge) market on GlobalCoal’s platform in the forward 90-day
