Coaldesk LLC believes that coal is a valuable and natural global resource that is beneficial to our quality of life. It is a fossil fuel which is plentiful and is a strong competitor to natural gas electric power generation. Coal-fired electricity is critical to a well-balanced power generation portfolio and is an essential fuel for steel and cement production as well as other industrial applications. Furthermore, Coaldesk believes that coal is indeed a commodity that should be not be left unprotected against price volatility.
The coal market has evolved dramatically over the last two decades. Coal trading transacts as both a physical and financial commodity, providing opportunities to hedge against price volatility and market risk. The market offers more index-linked pricing for the physical transactions in the more standardized benchmark thermal market. At the same time the market provides one-off, specialized opportunities for specific coal quality specifications. This includes thermal and metallurgical grade coals in both the domestic and international markets.
With experienced professionals and in-depth market knowledge, Coaldesk LLC strives to supply clients with tailor-made services for each transaction along with facilitating efficient and timely buy and sell opportunities.
