The BDI (Baltic Dry Index) clinched 13 points earlier on today and at 1,760 still remains safe. Geopolitics in tatters. John Faraclas’ mid-week brief recap:

The Capes’ BCI now stands at 3,515 – that’s 44 points plus; a bit of a contained rise given the last days triple-digit ones. We still advise all to be cautious.

Drops for the Panamaxes; the BPI lost 31 points and now reads 1,539 points…

“Gains” for the Supras’ BSI  now at 1,036. That’s plus one point…

Minus two points for the Handies’ BHSI  now at 547.

So all in all, except the contained rise in the Capesize tonnage, all other dry indices remained either falling or grounded. CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION!

The Wets once again with mixed feelings; the last published  BDTI (Dirties) and BCTI (Cleans) stood at 768 – no change and 498 – minus two points respectively.

A falling  WTI now at US$ 67.66 is good news… Let’s hope for a major drop for the benefit of the 90 centum of people on Planet Ocean!

Geopolitics are turning sour with all issues we cove:

MIGRANTS causing major issues; enough!  The Wars in Syria and Iraq an din the wider periphery might ignite a conflagration… An enigmatic Turkey sliding to bankruptcy and expect a messy divorce with the USA and Europe over major multiple issues; Greece in tatters – the wildfires will cause upheavals… The EU in total mess and wait and see what’s gone to happen with BREXIT… The Balkans might reignite again; Russia will pursue its own agenda…. At the other side of the Atlantic president Trump has his very personal way of running the Americans and the World at large…. China will get the wrath of and from all. Japan is watching in the background…mess in Zimbabwe…

Have a nice evening and continue to be on guard from actions emanating from Pirates, Terrorists and any Criminal whatsoever wherever you are on Planet Ocean…
