TAIYUAN, June 10 (Xinhua) -- China Taiyuan coal transaction price index stood at 140.03 points Monday, up 0.04 percent week on week.
The index, released by China Taiyuan Coal Transaction Center (CTCTC) based in Shanxi, a coal-rich province, reflects the coal price levels and changes in the main production areas of China. It is published every Monday.
Analysts said although power plants had limited additional demand for coal, the demand from steel mills and coking factories remained robust, which caused a slight rise of the coal transaction price index.
With more than 10,000 registered coal traders, the CTCTC is the largest coal trading center in China. Enditem
