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 the price declines came after coal consumption has peaked as the autumn is coming and power plants are destocking stored coal and currently have little interest in making large purchases.
With more than 10,000 registered coal traders, the CTCTC is the largest coal trading center in China.
