Good day, good afternoon, good evening Once again a day with Owners building up their confidence for the days to come. Not exactly reflected on the the today’s index, with BDI growth being (still up) but rather slow. BDI having difficulties to go through the 1,200 mark, Panamaxes managing to remain above the 1,500 level […]Read More size does not always matter. And so the index. Size of the index, who cares really?
Few info proposed by BMTI today are somehow a good indication on charterers feeling about the close future for the shipping market. So, as said by BMTI, “charterers booking on period 30-40 vessels from Panamax down to Supras”, this would mean either they have a big book ahead of them and willing to secure their […]Read More Period booking. Get full of ships.
Too much love around today to bother about trying to do a lovely market report. Otherwise, here, http://splash247.com/bourbon-offload-41-older-vessels-part-digital-transformation a nice example of lovely « story telling »… when owners don’t know what to do with their ships, don’t want to recon they are overloaded with idled ladies and better to say on the market « getting rid of […]Read More too much love… obviously –

I let you dig in your favorite web engine. In shipping, not sure the crystal […]Read More From Rooster to dog
Either you’re you watching the opening Ceremony of the winter Olympics or you’re on youtube, trying to find the best tutorial to become the best pizzaiolo ever or is it just me feeling absolutely nothing is happening today on the chartering market? So to end up this great fixing week and prepare and even better […]Read More +++ Positive ++++ shipping mood
Good day, good morning, When it comes to Capes, BMTI do not hesitate to believe they (the Capes) “have been climbing back with a vengeance in both basins“… Vengeance seems to me a bit of a strong word while the upward on the BCI is only +229 from Monday to today. Sure, Handies would love […]Read More can we say shipping is as good as a nice pizza?
Looking like BDI’s not willing to get back below the 1,000 mark with today’s back into positive mood. +13pts, only driven by the capes able to come back above 1,500. Other size, just managing to slow down the fall. Everybody can wonder how the market will react to the « Golden week » which is coming next […]Read More Lots of questions today… pretty much no replies. No room for doubt.
comforting lies or unpleasant truths ? So, what have we learned in shipping this week? (as everybody would say, “what’s great about shipping, we keep learning every day“).
