The BDI managed to reduce its loses thanks to the Capers’ rebound, but it will remain down; Geopolitics still worsening. John Faraclas’ midweek recap;

With a dozen points plus since yesterday’s closing the BDI (Baltic Dry Index) at 926 cannot be saved, full stop and period.  The Caper’ BCI 2014 gained 100 points and managed, for the time being, to stay afloat above the 1,000 points – now reading 1,144…

The Panamaxes BPI continued to lose ground and another 71 points were lost earlier on today; now standing at 905! CAUTION, CAUTION, CAUTION- same as per yesterday’s warning.

The Supras’ BSI lost 15 points and now stands at 926…

The Handies too lost but just one point with the BHSI now reading 604…

As we have numerous times explained: One size doesn’t constitute a market!

The Wets on a plus modus; the last published BDTI (Dirties) and the BCTI (Cleans) both gained ten and 43 points respectively – 920 and 595! Winter you say, travelling…

The WTI stands at US$ 52,59 more or less same as per yesterday’s levels…

All other sectors continue to remain the same…

The Geopolitical front is now totally uncharted; no one knows except the architects of this mess, what’s up… The Architects though forget that the human Factor will alter all their plans…

The MIGRANTS issue continues to remain on top of all matters with more crossings over to Europe and many being lost; pity!

The Syrian saga continues too; Aleppo is being slowly slowly evacuated and let’s see what’s next… Phase three will soon begin…

Turkey continues to be the stumbling block in the region on all aspects. Fine, we all condemn terrorism, but what about Turkish terrorism and blackmail in the region. Today for example, if our info in correct, a Turkish CN235 flew above the Greek Islet of Panagia (one of the ten islets of Oinoussai) at nearly 100 feet – that’s 30 meters. More fighter jets violated once again per daily practice the Greek and European Airspace – hope none of the viewers mentions anything about NATO as if, we will counter back very abruptly… you dead well know what I mean. At this point and given Greece’s poor finances, bail outs, austerity etc etc, things you might “know” and hopefully “understand” very well, wonder what Mrs. Merkel and her trusted lieutenant Wolfgang Schäuble have to say for the expenditure in fuel etc of the Greek Airforce on its reconnaissance mission and prohibition; why spend all these billions all these ten years, not to mention the billions in the past in protecting and securing Greece from the Turkish intrusions? Shame Mrs. Merkel, Shame Mr. Schäuble, Shame to you all in Europe for allowing these despicable things to happen and continue to strangulate the Greek people. Shame to the current Greek government who doesn’t know how to react, being alike Prometheus in Bounds… What are the Greek Diplomats have to say? Yesterday we condemn them for getting paid and doing really nothing for the Turkish and other threats which have escalated to a dangerous level since 1974! What we want to stress is that we need diplomats like the masters of the seven oceans, the Greek shipowners so to speak, who know how to navigate in turbulent waters. Business Diplomacy is missing with all due respect; wake up! Greece is a small nation but number one in Shipping for ten Millennia; read about it and open your eyes or else! We recently uploaded an interesting report analysis by Prof. George C. Bitros… There are many reports in this and other mediums about the continuous success of Greece’s shipping. Have a read and you will see. See what happens around you and the success of Greece’s shipping negotiating skills and you will get the message.

The terrorists acts in Turkey, Germany and Switzerland continue to make waves in all headlines and there is an alarming tightening of security in the British capital, all over the UK and indeed elsewhere on Planet Ocean.

We await, eagerly to see what’s next? Can president Erdogan control the revolutionaries Islamists turned terrorists in his own country?  Mrs. Merkel what do you have to say on the Berlin’s despicable events? And what about the Swiss authorities… What’s president Putin’s next move towards Turkey? You see, one thing is major energy business, the other is how to deal with a neighbour who cannot control terrorism and his citizens, being even members of the security services reacting in an assassin style… Pity for Russians losing a great Diplomat!

What does president Obama has to say on all these macabre and appalling things happening in a NATO member state? Can he do something before he goes? Did they told him the harsh reality when he visited Athens?  He did something spectacular with the Arctic, something which will remain for ever, few days before leaving office; he can do the same by putting Turkey on to notice! And what about president-elect Donald Trump? Has he been appropriately briefed on who are the Turks?  The time has come for the world to see and act as swiftly as possible and stop another international tragedy with the Turkish behaviour. Add the Cyprus issue; add the Syrian and Iraqi saga and see for yourself what is needed to stop Turkish blackmail and despicable behaviour…

BREXIT continues to make waves. A very interesting lesson for all on Planet Ocean is this brave decision by the British people to say: BREXIT; we need our total freedom and national integrity and not to be governed by a German run European Union! BREXIT will soon be – particularly when all going to end, the best for all textbooks, a great lesson for all.

More news to follow soon during the first update before midnight.

Being the Winter Solstice today– or Yule, the smallest day of the year, there are a lot of interesting news making it an exceptional day. Wonder what the “oracle” in Stonehenge has to say…
