The BDI (Baltic Dry Index) gained 29 points earlier on today and now stands at 888 points; the Wets though …decided to dive further. On the geopolitical aspects, as we have always advised you, things are getting sour no matter …the fake news, but the propaganda spreading bubbles which unfortunately influence the hoi polloi. John Faraclas’ report:

With all main dry indices on an upwards mode, just smile, given that it was a near miss the drop of the main index close the 800 point threshold.

The as ever volatile and predictably unpredictable Capers gained  82  points and the BCI 2014 now reads 928 points…

The Panamaxes’ BPI now reads 1,141 – up 43 points…

The Supras’ BSI was up 14 points now reading 758 points, and

The Handies BHSI clinched just four– now standing at 484 points…

Container shipping still in tatters… Liner shipping too!!!

The Wets were both down; the last published BDTI (Dirties) and BCTI (Cleans)  stood at 647 – minus four and 565 – minus two respectively..

The WTI close to US$ 46 with falling intentions…

The Geopolitics still from worse to worse and ultra caution is being advised and companies, particularly shipping companies and all involved with them must do a Risk Drill Assessment before they begin to find excuses…

The Migrants issue gets worse… We provocatively say: Shame to all Politicians for not respective human lives and human rights!!!

The Wars in Syria and Iraq against ISIS and all against all… continues…

The Turkish blackmail and appetite to destabilize the entire East Med continues. Watch-out for possible Turkish reaction and actions around and within the Cypriot EEZ’s Block 11, as we feel, sending the Barbaros sismic vessel there might ignite unnecessary issues… Add that this coming Saturday is the anniversary of Erdogan’s coup which he preaches was organised my terrorists forces wishing to destroy the Turkish democracy. Who can believe him…

Next door Greece continues in dire straits within and from abroad…. CAUTION!

BREXIT enfolds with more surprises and issues from both sides in this perplexed equation… Caution with the Repeal Bill…

In France Presidents Macron and Trump create another relationship upgrading the USA-French relationship and tomorrow he will attend the Bastille Anniversary!!!

The USA internal matters with possible involvement of Putin’s Russia in the presidential election continues. Indeed we believe that one day the whole truth will come out; and then…? The Guillotine – the political one of course…

Putin’s Russia has its own agenda and must be taken seriously…

China’s commercial, shipping and trading expansion is dangerous and might trigger tsunamis… Liu Xiaobo might raise eyebrows in Beijing, but the rest of the world is unease… Democracy please…

Havaianas, the famous Brazilian brand of flip-flops has been sold to three banks in Brazil for US$ 1.1 billion!!!! We need to see a programme in ending corruption in Brazil, in south America and conversely all over Planet Ocean. Can the UN act and do it?

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