All in red amid explosive geopolitics

The BDI (Baltic Dry Index) and all its indices which comprise same, Dries and Wets, fell further amid a cocktail of explosive Geopolitics. The BDI stood at 765 – minus nine points; CAUTION. John Faraclas’ brief daily recap:

Its seems that we are possibly approaching a level close to yet another bottom but let us hope that a correction might happen before or, all things being equal, after the Chinese New Year.

Talking tto many shipowners and other shipping stakeholders in Greece with respect to the latest results and state of the Capes, Panamaxes, Supras and Handies they all are cautious but optimist too. Same applies for those involved with the wet cargos who in general had a far better four months – Sep to Dec 2019. 2020 is a very strange year… Their responde to the IMO2020 was fantastic in tems of who complies and who doesn’t, who opted fo scubbers and who for the 0,50 fuel… What an outcome

The WTI fell further and in a week’s time the US$5.19 were very well received (US$ 63.27 on the 6th of Jan) by the 7.7 billion masses all over Planet Ocean.

The Financial Markets and its Flagship – the Dow Jones “plays” close to 29,000 points and this might be a good reason to celebrate, possibly, tomorrow despite the fact that Planet Ocean is in red US$ 255 (Twohundredandfifty) trillion. Obviously, as we have stated in writing many times before, the bubble might burst and the tsunami so to speak, will cover all all over Planet Ocean with incalculable repercussions and despicable situations…

The Geopolitics are governed by the MIGRANTS issue, the USA vs Iran “confrontation” – which in “tandem” with the downing of the Ukrainian International Airlines and the loss of all 176 passengers and crew will bother us for a long time alike the Malaysian two planes a few years ago… Add the Trade Wars – mainly the USA vs China one and see what you get…

The MIGRANTS will create a social upturn all over, particularly in Greece’s Eastern Aegean Islands and it’s about time the Bautas fall; hands off the Greek Islands. Let the European Union under the leadership of Germany’s Mrs. Merkel take them all there. The Greek Islanders in Lesvos, Chios, Samos, Kos and ALL the other Islands cannot lose their social cohesion; they had enough as the surge is incalculable these days, not just from the Syrian inferno which up to a point was understandable, but still as far as Afghanistan and the Sub-Saharan nations! E N O U GH !!!

We repeat our warning for the faulty line from Gib to Afghanistan and from the Caucuses to the Horn of Africa.

In the Med we have to add the last Turkish provocation with Libya and the pestering of Greece and Cyprus. The European Union morons in Brussels – this is the most polite expression one can use only when the going gets tough in their lands will respond but it will be too late. Any violation of the sovereignty of Greece and Cyprus is a violation of the entire European Union! The excuse that the Greek junta was to blame for the Turkish invasion in Cyprus doesn’t have a leg to stand anymore!! We can entertain anyone who objects to this anytime live on an A1 TV station.

BREXIT: until all is over on a mutual accepted deal, nothing is over but still more mess!

North Korea: mind the nukes!!!

Australia: what an inferno which destroys the environment, humans and animals… who’s to blame for?

Central and Latin America: Caution on the fundamentals of Economics and Bankruptcy’s results…

Africa: Corruption must end as well as all proxy was there, be it economic, trade or even political…

In the USA we await to see who will dare press the button for impeaching president Trump!!!

Japan is closely watching all events all over; Putin’s Russia tries for yet a bigger stake of a hegemonic role.

That’s all for tonight; continue to remain on guard from actions emanating from Pirates, Terrorists, Criminals and Business Hooligans whatsoever wherever you are on Planet Ocean.
