The BDI (Baltic Dry Index) continued its downfall and earlier on today lost 26 points standing at 1,347. Geopolitics with trade wars beginning more than crucial… John Faraclas daily market brief:

The Capes’ fall was reduced to 52 points (it was 97 yesterday) and the BCI now reads 2,038, very close to the 2,000 point threshold…

The Panamaxes’ BPI lost 37 point, almost the same since yesterday when it lost 39 points, and now stands at 1,382.

The Supras’ BSI …grounded at 1,094 – no change…

Down one point for the Handies’ BHSI now reading 592…

The Wets were down and stranded so to speak; the last published BDTI (Dirties) and BCTI (Cleans) stood at 743 – no change and 516 – down one point respectively.

The WTI as these lines are written stands at US$ 65. Caution still for an issue that might trigger global mess…

The Geopolitics are crucial and yesterday on purpose we didn’t revert with the Geopolitical mess which resulting in receiving over 100 calls…

The issue remain the same; first and foremost the MIGRANTS – see the international press bombardment on the issue with the USA and Europe in an unprecedented mess. SHAME to all politicians and diplomats for not being able due to pressure from… above and being under duress from warmongers and business hooligans; can they get their act together or else …?

The Trade Wars are now on and the Tariffs with a tit-for-tat encounters being the name of the game… err of shame! In another article-report, VesselsValue analyst Court Smith, discusses what’s next for the shipping industry if possible tariffs are put in place by the US against China. So, MIGRANTS, the entire Middle East and it’s 2,000 miles periphery are on fire – there is more to come; the Turkish elections, Turkey’s pestering of all its neighbours, the Greek internal and external sagas – PM Tsipras is about to visit London and await to read his leaps…, Cyprus, the entire Balkans, The BREXIT time bomb, The Italian forthcoming nuclear explosion… err financial explosion, The German wrong attitude on running Europe, Putin’s Russia flexing its muscles… The North Korean Deal on the nuclear saga, the US re-asserting its position, the penniless Africa, the bankrupt so to speak Central and South America… Ah! The Environmental issue might come to the fore… Enough!

Have a nice evening and be on guard for any eventuality emanating from Pirates, Terrorists and Criminals of any kind wherever you ae on Planet Ocean. Happy Summer Solstice !
