ABSTRACT
The article reports that coal and oil prices have continued to storm higher in the second half of September 2007, reaching ever-increasing record levels. However, some upside fatigue appears to have set in recently and prices have edged lower. Coal prices for the coming winter have smashed through $100/tonne, while short-term prices have broken above $110/tonne, as shipping rates have climbed further in the face of intense global competition for vessels.
