The BDI@914 raises serious questions following that all dry indices fall today and president Trump’s takeover of global affairs for the superpower will definitely shake the trade to its foundations; John Faraclas’ daily report:

Down 11 points since last Friday the 20th of January, a very significant day, just for the shake of …a further fall, the BDI continued to dive… It will need, as we have numerous times remind you, another 1,500 points plus to recover (back to the end of December 2013 levels), but the question stands: until then who lives and who dies…

The Capers BCI 2014 was down 31 points now standing at 1,579 points…

The Panamaxes BPI was also down at 962 – minus eight points…

The Supras’ BSI lost just four and now reads 714 points…

AND the Handies’ BHSI lost four points now reading 437 points…

Once again we are on a Dry and High point… All in red…

The Container trade will be determined in a very difficult way following president Trump’s takeover not just of the white House, but that of trade; the the boxhips have a handicap here…

The Wets a bit of the same with the last published BDTI (Dirties) and the BCTI (Cleans) at 997, that’s minus five and under the 1,000 point threshold; and 619, that’s plus three respectively– for a change one, just one index in black…

The WTI at USD52,99 – let’s see were the barrel will end, particularly after the 16th of April – that is Easter…

On the Geopolitical front now:

The MIGRANTS continue to be the number one issue all over the world; not even Donald Trump’s new trade policies can match this saga… just wait and see…

The peace talks in Astana begun with the worse possible climate. The Syrian saga as well as that of the Kurds won’t be an easy thing… Where is the objectives? We need to know the objectives, the combatants too luck of it… Shame! Expect more mess…

Turkey enters another period following Erdogan’s total gain of power. It will become intolerable both for within Turkey as well as for Turkey’s external affairs. Caution as Turkey’s financial affairs are getting messier…

Greece is also in trouble from within and abroad. Caution here too, as detrimental situations might surface. GREXIT the only solution administered by an ARISTOS team. All the rest are nonsense as we are witnessing same snice 2009!!!!!

BREXIT proceeds further, what a blessing. We are sure the United Kingdom will definitely be a success, despite the obstacles on the way!

In the rest of Europe the coming elections in France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands might produce more financial unrest… Too many issues at stake. Time for Germany to pay the damage that has created and stop by the way bully countries such as Greece or Cyprus or even Portugal…

Can Germany counter to Trump’s policies?

Sad stories in Italy following the deadly avalanche. some happy endings there too, but you cannot counter to natural disasters – until now… Their magnitude cannot be calculated. Confratulations to all the brave men and women rescuers!!!

At the other side of the Atlantic president Trump withdrawal from TPP will make the pacific and the world at large go down… America First must be digested from all, even from Putin’s Russia and the Chinese. Hopefully the Japanese can make it, they are a different species in business and trade! In the meantime, deadly storm hit southern USA; pity… Brace!

As for shipping, although TPP covers 40 centum of the World’s trade, nothing much will change. The world needs cargoes to be moved no matter where they are made. The price aspect though counts… Expect surprises from Trump’s America in all fronts. Mexico’s president Pena Nieto in trouble… Can he counter to Trump’s supremacy?  If you know how to read president Trump’s style and pre-election pledges then you can see what we believe that is gone to happen. An end also to the Obama era at the worst ever style and response. Wonder if this is Democracy: the power of the Winner…? Indeed the Winner gets them all, but… As said in previous reporting, let’s see the next 97 day of his first 100 in power. Then we will know definitely what’s up! God Bless America all the Way!

In Africa, South Africa is to be watched and Gambia still in a mess with the US$ 11 million missing…

Coming up on Wednesday the Marine Money Conference in London; at the best possibly time for World Shipping and Geopolitics.

That’s  all for now, have a nice evening and be on guard for every eventuality!
