Dirties …”save” the Markets, Geos still perplexed and LISW2019 makes waves!

The BDI (Baltic Dry Index) continued its fall – hope not a free fall, lost 35 points earlier on today and now stands at 2 ,331 points. Geopolitics with the Migrants, the Trade Wars, BREXIT and other perplexed issues continue to enhance uncertainty. John Faraclas’ daily recap:

The Capes’ BCI suffered a triple-digit fall; 114 points were wiped off and now stand at 4,612…

Contained losses for the Panamaxes’ BPI now down to 2,129 – minus 15 points…

The Supras’ lost eight points and now the BSI 1,305 points…

A reverse case with the Handies; the ace plus of the last thee days turned a red ace – down to 691!

The Wets with mixed so to speak feelings; the last published BDTI (Dirties) and BCTI (Cleans) Dirties saw the Dirties surviving with ten plus points – now at 706 which is over and above the 700 points threshold, but the Cleans lost one and now stand at 452.

The WTI was down 66 cents since yesterday (US$ 55.75) to US$ 55.09! Let’s hope same drops further to the much acceptable US$ 49,99….

As said Geopolitics are perplexed and we advise all to be on guard; will revert with a briefing shortly… We are suddened by the Bahamian hurricane disaster as the death tool rises and too many are still missing. May Posidon saw his mercy demanding that Aeolus remains put…

On another tone and note the LISW2019 main Conference was a big success with excellent speakers and a fascinating debate on all four well titled sessions covering the entire Shipping Business spectrum!

The Gala dinner was a big woooow; who wasn’t there! Will revert with a full account! Congrats to all at LISW2019, SHIPPINGInsight and all those who offered the challenge to confront Shipping and the Environment in its entirety.

Have a nice evening and continue to remain on guard from actions emanating from Pirates, Terrorists, Criminals and Business Hooligans whatsoever wherever you are on Planet Ocean!
