Dry Bulk Weekly – November 22, 2010

(For The Week Ending November 22, 2010)

Baltic dry index fell 6.8% last week; Capesize Index was down 2.4%; Panamax Index fell 13.8%; Supramax Index was down 8.4%; Handysize Index fell 5.4%.

Capsize Index started forming a bottom; Steel inventory falling; As I wrote last Monday I expect Chinese buyers returning to the market soon and substantial ramp up in iron ore imports.
