About the Coal Trading Association

The Coal Trading Association (CTA) is the only trade association dedicated exclusively to the needs of traders, trading managers, brokers, risk managers, sales managers, and purchasing managers in the coal trading industry.

CTA was established in 1999 to promote coal trading capability and liquidity in the US. CTA develops and maintains industry standards for coal trading activity with the goal of achieving a disciplined, liquid and efficient coal trading industry. To achieve this goal, CTA develops policies, exchanges information among members and other interested professional and technical groups, and offers training programs to improve the knowledge, skills, and practice tools of its members.
