Tanker Weekly – July 4, 2010

Baltic Dirty Tanker Index fell 9.4%; Baltic Clean Tanker Index rose 8.0%.

Dirty rates falling on abundant supply (multiple ships competing for a single cargo), clean rates rebounding on increased hauling of petrochemical cargoes.

The drop in demand for crude oil is another factor confirming economic slowdown.
