The BDI (Baltic Dry Index) lost 19 points earlier on today and uncertainty is the name of the game. Geopolitics remain crucial and as said in previous reports, we are now in the phase “hostilities” of a multiple kind. John Faraclas’ daily recap:

The Capers widened their losses and the BCI now stands at 1,236 – minus 74 points!

The Panamaxes’ BPI lost four points and now reads 1,619; caution…

The Supras and the Handies as a general rule when the Capers and Panamaxes dive are on the up… The BSI and BHSI stood at 1,077 – plus 16 and 626 – plus four points respectively!

The Wets were modestly down; the last published BDTI (Dirties) and BCTI (Cleans) stood at 641 – minus one and 563 – minus four respectively… Still a liability for all.  The energy… It is the Energy stupid to paraphrase the “famous” maxim…

Geopolitics: An infamous situation with the energy given that we ae already at War – unless the business morons and hooligans cannot see this… Shame! Wonder where the pacifist’s generations of the 60’s and 70’s are in particular… The “pacifists” are simply today’s warmongers. See what’s happening with the Migrants and you will understand why we use such a harsh, but honest and more than truthful language. Last night’s opening of “Muses and Makers” in Sofia gallery in London, where amongst others Margarita Mavromichalis’ pictures for Lesvos Island on Refugees, Migrants and Displace people of all ages – unfortunately- send a powerful message! Now you know!

The Wars in the Middle East are spreading and wonder where the diplomatic skills are these days, particularly with all these Schools and Universities of Diplomacy, Politics and all that jazz… Syria and Iraq are living in hell. You need to completely rebuild this countries…

Turkey’s rhetoric and actions continue to be despicable for all in the regions, but remember one days Turkey’s backers including NATO will regret for siding with Erdogan and his likes.  Watch out Turkey’s intentions!

Greece next door continues to be bullied from all sides; within, the political spectrum might change overnight anytime and on foreign issues things look bleak, unless somebody raises his fist! Enough!

The Balkans remains a tinderbox and we are giving a warning…

Cyprus continues to be bullied… let’s hope not for long…

BREXIT now becomes the second main / most important issue all over Planet Ocean after the MIGRANTS!! Meantime the UK – Russian standoff continues… USA, France and Germany condemn nerve agent against ex-spy…

Putin’s Russia awaits his re-election and then he will unleash his agenda… CAUTION!

In the USA president Trump’s administration come out to say that 19 Russians including individuals are with sanctions for meddling in the US vote and cyber-attacks! Are we reaching a new climax with incalculable repercussions for humanity?

Tonight at London’s Hellenic Centre there will be a panel discussion on “Beyond Brexit: what comes next for EU Nationals? The Brexit effect on the Status of EU Citizens”. Kevin Featherstone (LSE), Vicky Pryce, barrister Jolyon Maugham and journalist Nikos Konstantaras from Kathimerini will contemplate…

More news later on tonight; until then be on guard from any eventuality emanating from Pirates and Terrorists wherever you are on Planet Ocean!
