With a couple of points up the BDI brings in the knowingly unknown situation which coupled with extremely dangerous Geopolitics will trigger unwanted scenarios with unwanted results; John Faraclas daily recap:

The BDI (Baltic Dry Index) remained at the same levels as in yesterday’s report with just two points up and now reads 928…

The volatile Capers’ BCI 2014 gained 75 points and now is well above the 1,200 threshold at 1,219 points…

The Panamaxes continued their fall with some 39 points lost since yesterday and the BPI now stands at 866 – ultra caution…

Losses for the Supras’ BSI – down a dozen points at 914!

Down three points for the Handies with BHSI reading 601…

As stressed yesterday, one size cannot constitute a market…

On the antipode the Wets did more than well; the last published BDTI (Dirties) and BCTI (Cleans) gained 25 and 73 points respectively – hefty gains eh! So at 945 and 668 means a white Christmas, something to celebrate given the …high and dry Dry Markets…

The Container trade must be sorted out soon before we hear of more colossal falls…

LNG might help, but only a few…

Lucky shipyards; environment and regulation as well as economy, this very powerfull Greek word, will save the day, but not for all shipyards…

Despite the eight years of Market collapse and three in complete grounding, this is the best ever market to acquire ships – second hand or newbuildings, hence we endorse the shipyards …minimal, but better than nothing good fortune/luck…

We are proud to have been of a good advisory medium without failing an inch and you can verify this by studying all our reports and televised interviews. we are grateful to all those who gave us the chance! ALLABOUTSHIPPING.co.uk has been well ahead from all other media and will continue for the foreseeable future.

The Geopolitics remain the same as our last (yesterday) and all previous reports: in a total mess, and we suggest all shipping stakeholder to closely watch the enfolding developments.  We have warned of what might come next following the fall of Aleppo… Obviously the best strategy is to be very strong, first in general and then at the decisive point. Keep your financial superiority and stealthy use same at the point and time you know how to act with the utmost concentration to succeed! This entails power which includes the knowledge of executing / winning over all in this competitive shipping adventure. There are no excuses left over; shipping banks are down and out and you have to learn to swim alone… The financial remnants (funds, special equity holders etc etc) do not understand and do not know an iota of the shipping modern geopolitical adventure; they never did despite trying over the last ten years to be seen as replacements et etc and fill the gap. The days ahead will definitely prove importantly decisive for all and the usage of all appropriate means to go ahead is paramount. The MIGRANTS issue and Terrorism must be halted before it is too late. Can Diplomats, whom we recently condemn, raise to the circumstances and stop the deprivation both of the MIGRANTS as well us to all those being affected by them – you dead well know what I mean.

Have a nice evening and welcome to the Winter’s new sagas; be on guard though from unexpected actions by all these culprits around! Another year of discontent is off… Ouf !

BREXMAS is a few days away, Enjoy!
