Monday Monday and the sky is grey …err and the Dry Markets are all …Green, “supplementing” turbulent Geopolitics whilst COCID-19 spreads further…

The BDI (Baltic Dry Index) regained the 3,200 points threshold by clinching 57 points since last Friday the 7th of May 2021 and now reads 3,240. Cleans “bounced” back but uncertainty is still there with the Dirties falling. The Migrants and the Middle East dominate turbulent Geopolitics whilst Covid-19 spreads further due to lack of leadership in WHO or the Business Hooligans with their spin doctors thrive vis-a-vis the Vaccine’s issue. John Faraclas daily brief recap:

The Capes’ BCI gained 103 points going over and above the 5,109 points and now read 5,109…

The Panamaxes too surpassed the 3,000 points threshold and now the BPI stand at 3,014 points…

The Supras’ BSI complete the hat-trick gaining 20 points and going over the 2,200 points threshold… standing now at 2,216 points…

Ah! A minor error we had a haul as the fourth dry index, that of the Handies’ BHSI was also surpassing the 1,203 points threshold standing at 1,203!

All in all a buoyant Dry Market… still we feel that we must be alerted as events in Geopolitics, Recession and Covid might turn this Dry upwards trend nasty…

The Wets still an enigma; the last published BDTI (Dirties) and BCTI (Cleans) stood at 605 – minus two and 502 – plus 30 points respectively; the latter surprised analysts as same surpassed the 500 points life-line so to speak threshold… C A U T I O N!

The WTI was up two cents since last Friday 7 May and now reads US$ 64.92… Once again we warn you of the consequences these pricing has for the 7.7 billion people on Planet Ocean. Any cent above the US$ 39.99 is detrimental for all. Do not ignore this – I am referring to all those setting these despicable levels.

Mind me this Recession we experience nowadays deepens further and will create further mess for all. CAUTION.

In the Geopolitical Front we hit yet another ace, once again with MIGRANTS. Over 2,000 crossed over from North Africa to the Italian Island of Lampedusa!! S H A M E. Now you can see why this medium insists like no other in the Naval Blockade with a Mandate and Rules of Engagement. END OF THE STORY.-

In the Greek Territory there were also incidents recorded over the weekend… emanating from Turkey’s Anatolian Coast…

CAUTION in the Middle East as developments in Jerusalem and Gaza Strip already creates chaos and makes Turkey’s appetite in pulling / pooling together all Muslims and all Islamists Functions together against Israel. We would like to see brinkmanship in negotiating a long lasting Peace is the region as we are in 2021 and not in 1967 or 1973, nor in 1956… Can the politicians there just do it? Can the super powers assist in this Peace deal? This region falls within the faulty line we have “created” from Gib to Afghanistan and from the Caucuses to the Horn of Africa…

Moreover, Turkey silently and with super blackmail tactics as well as using its Religious card for a continuous mess and changes even for frontiers,  stir-up the entire region – 2,000 miles from its frontiers… CAUTION…  The EU has to intervene or Frau Merkel and Frau Ursula von der Leyen MUST resign… They have both spectacularly failed in this issues – not to mention others. The United Kingdom is very much concerned so does the USA… We shall soon see a major eruption which only the USA and its president can contain

The Anglo-French stand-off on Fisheries is NOT yet resolved. CAUTION…

Labour’s defeat in the local elections last week was monumental. Expect changes… In London Sadiq Khan Pyrrhic victory an issue. Law and Order Mr. Khan! It is not just the environment!

Let’s see the forthcoming G7 meeting even without India’s PM Mondi…

Awaiting reports from the Delphi Economic Forum VI May 10-15, 2021 in Greece…

On the Coronavius Anathema front, things are getting worse and with the new relaxed measures in some countries who wish to open Tourism, things will get worse. Patience is a virtue. Let the 7.7 billion people on Planet Ocean be Vaccinated in full and let’s hope respective medicines become available and cut the nonsense. See what happens in India and how this will affect us all on Planet Ocean. What happens with Vaccine deniers? A force to reckon too…

Health issues surface in Japan for the Tokyo Olympics… CAUTION there too…

Have a nice evening and weekend but 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 over US$ 300 (three hundred) trillion…
