    please check on your panamax data for 3 months as I have a feeling that your calculation of percentage change is wrong every week.

    All the best and keep up the very serious work done!!!

    Yes, it was wrong, not just for panamaxes, but also for all of the other indexes.
    I have changed the formulas now and posted correct data.
    Thanks for the suggestion!
