The BDI@1,201, low Wets, still enigmatic Geopolitics and let’s hope the Vaccine works and reduces COVID-19…

The BDI lost ten points since yesterday and now reads 1,201 – soon might go under this 1,200 point threshold. The Wets fluctuate up and down – still low though. In the Geopolitical arena, everything is possible; CAUTION! Wonder when the Vaccine begins to work against Coronavirus COVID-19. John Faraclas brief midweek recap:

One point lost from Capes’ BCI now at 1,486…

The Panamaxes’ BPI lost 31 points and now read 1,379 losing also the 1,400 point threshold…

A point down for the Supras’ BSI now at 1,019…

Good news for the Handies’ BHSI now at 660 – plus two!! A cause to celebrate…

The Wets fluctuate yet again; the last published BDTI (Dirties) and BCTI (Cleans) stood at 444 – minus 11 and 354 – plus ten points respectively.

The WTI at US$ 44.91 – up 63 cents… C A U T I O N!!

The Geopolitical situation as per all our previous / coverage gets worse…

MIGRANTS remain on top… of all issues put together!

The faulty line from Gib to Afghanistan and from the Caucuses down to the Horn of Africa, boils or better say is close to a Yellowstone situ.

CAUTION as Turkey might proceed with further provocations in Central and East Med, the Balkans, The Aegean, Black Sea, south Caucuses, and the entire Middle East. Armenia, Cyprus, Greece, Iraq – northern part which is known as Kurdistan, Libya, Egypt and other nations are being bullied by Erdogan’s Turks wishes – together with his backers to create a bloodbath destabilising the region and beyond as same will include religious explosion and terrorism…

BREXIT continues to create big questions; let us see the finale!!!

Europe continues to be in tatters thanks to Germany’s attitude in many issues; not to mention how much Turkophile (Türksever in Turkish) the Merkel led administration continues to be – like all her predecessors. Nemesis looms as always in the background… Wonder when Mrs. Merkel’s skeletons come out from her cupboards.. yes with an “s” at the end…

France mourns Giscard d’Estaign, another victim of Coronavirus who just passed away at 94. A very debatable politician who always knew his way to enter many of France’s administrations… He got also the top job as President 1974 – 1981! A Grecophile and close friend of Greece’s PM and President Constantinos Karamanlis (1907 – 1998)…

At the other side of the Atlantic Joe Biden forms Planet Ocean’s top administration. We wish him and his selected team all the best for the benefit of all on Planet Ocean! On another note Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top USA’s infectious disease expert was right in warning of a surge in COVID-19 cases post Thanksgiving, but wrong in criticising the United Kingdom’s COVID vaccine approval process; in the US Dr. Fauci you have an expression: KISS… We expect an apology…

On the USA vs. China front, John Ratcliffe, USA’s top intelligence official warns that China wishes to demolish Global Democracy and wishes also to curb Freedom. The industrial espionage war in stealing commercial secrets is more than dangerous for trade and business… For Shipping, our industry too… CAUTION.. CAUTION for the entire Pacific Basin, NOT just for South China Sea! Australia too at loggerheads with China… see our last two reports…

Nothing changed much in Latin Central and Souh America but expect mess in Venezuela. Maduro and Guaidó will fight to the end; watch this space…

Africa continues to be messy. In Nigeria for another 20 (twenty) years they expect more Terrorism…

Russia has also a lot to do close in its borders to protect the Armenias… President Putin though MUS break away with any further dealings with Turkey and in particular with its president. He is more than an intelligent leader… Of course as things stand on Planet Ocean he pursues his own agenda, but this doesn’t mean he has to harm other people with the collateral damage effects…

In the Sub-Continent: mind the Indian farmers in the streets… Mind also the Kashmir as we are just over 73 years since the conflicts begun in the region. CAUTION as nukes in the hands of Pakistan and India are not Christmas fireworks…

Time to begin an all-out war against the Coronavirus anathema but this entails convergence of all Pharmaceutical giants to save humanity; end of the story/ stop the exploitation of humans with the competition of mega firms, it might backfire… The public MUST remain DISCIPLINED and the Politicians and Public Servants RESPONSIBLE. We have the laws and the protocols but same MUST at all times be observed; end of the story!!!!! Numbers are important as tomorrow we will have over 1,5 million dead and 65 million cases.

Finally, Virtual Reality is the next big thing in the Shipping Industry for the years to come; now you understand why the photo on top… Watch this space!

Have a nice evening ensuring you continue to remain on guard from actions emanating from Pirates, Terrorists, Criminals and any Business Hooligans whatsoever wherever you are on Planet Ocean.  Once again a big THANK YOU to all who really care for all humans – Doctors, Nurses, Seafarers, Dockers, Port Authorities et al during this Coronavirus disaster!! We repeat: Do please invest in Hospitals including Equipment, Doctors, Nurses and any useful means to avoid further disasters! Become more disciplined and care for the Environment too. Lastly: Education and Training for all to be able to tackle these disasters. Let us work collectively together and NOT opt for a fistful of Dollars to restart the already collapsed global economy… which is in red US$ 280 (twohundredandeighty) trillion…
