PRICING NOTICE: Amendment to frequency of low-vol PCI indices

After a consultation period, Fastmarkets has amended the frequency of its two low-volatility pulverized coal injection (PCI) indices to weekly from daily pricing starting from March 15, 2021.

This decision was made due to the illiquid nature of the spot market, which has been further affected by China's ongoing ban on Australian coal imports.
All historical data relating to these prices prior to the amendment will remain available in the Fastmarkets pricing database.
The full specifications, with the amendment in italics, are as follows:
