BEIJING -Chinese coking coal and coke futures ended higher on Wednesday, as a recent coronavirus outbreak in the country sparked supply concerns for the steelmaking ingredients.
China on Wednesday reported the most new locally transmitted COVID-19 cases since January as some cities stepped up restrictions, cut flights and increased testing to get to grips with an outbreak driven mainly by the Delta variant.
"The coronavirus situation has been developing, which affected the turnover rate of coke and arrivals at mills," GF Futures wrote in a note.
The recent outbreak also delayed efficiency of motor transport for coking coal, it added.
