Recent News Regarding the Coal Industry
Coal prices are indeed destined to go higher as they follow the rise of ‘coal currencies’ such as Australian Dollar (AUD), South African Rand (ZAR) and Columbian Peso (COP). Strong emerging market demand is also pushing up prices although it may be limited by abundant stocks on coal producing countries.
The BofA Merrill Lynch Global Report on energy pointed out that many “oil currencies” including UAE Dirhams (AED) and Saudi Arabian Riyal (SAR) are pegged to the US dollar, but coal exporters tend to keep a free float therefore currencies linked to coal have outperformed both their emerging market and G-10 peers.

Technical Chart Analysis
The RSI has reached nearly a one year low at 33.25, being highly oversold and shorted, and this should overturn soon. MACD and EMA lines have been bilinear for quite sometime, and it is not going to be long before they see a cross, leading to a jump in price as seen in early to mid September. As FDA deadlines near, BIEL should also see a jump in volume, which was down against the average on 11/09/09.
