As quoted in the publication:

The commodities desk at Citi has been one of the first to call a bottom in coking coal prices, tipping a rebound in coming months, but with its long-term price expectation trimmed by $US10 to $US170 a tonne.

Its short-term bullishness — $US143 a tonne in 2015 and $US152 a tonne in 2016 — is based on a pick-up in Chinese steel ­demand, announcements of the closure of 14 million tonnes of annual production since April, and a slowdown in new supply growth.
