After a rather long break on this blog, with nothing published in the last month*, I’m back with something which inspired me today and happy to share. (*not that nothing happened in the daily chartering side but somehow, it’s always the same mechanics which are occuring in the chartering.

Between the politics in one side : G7 feedback (and any new trading restrictions which may come up) Trump Kim Jong Un summit Opec’s decisions about oil pricing politic And on the other side the […]Read More Wait and see – 기다리고 보아라 – applies also in shipping
The fixture mentionned by BMTI « another 33/34,000 dwt has been fixedbelow US$10,000 daily for a trip to Med » is most probably this fixture mentionned this afternoon in the Baltex.
