Dry Bulk Weekly – November 29, 2010

(For The Week Ending November 26, 2010)

Baltic dry index rose 0.7% last week; Capesize Index was down 8.3%; Panamax Index rose 14.3%; Supramax Index rose 7.0%; Handysize Index was unchanged.

Very nervous and volatile week. Markets again on crossroad; to reiterate my view: I expect rate recovery in near term, if rates fail to rebound and if Chinese commodity demand doesn’t return soon I would be very worried.
