Argus Coal Daily Market Service

An Argus market service, published daily

Argus Coal Daily provides coal market intelligence, pricing and analysis for the US coal markets. Argus assesses prices in the traditional spot markets for physical and over-the-counter (OTC) coal.

The distinction reflects the specific trading and delivery requirements of dry-bulk fuels markets, with daily assessment of standardised trading products and weekly assessment of less-liquid spot physical transactions.
