Dry Bulk Weekly – August 29, 2011

(For The Week Ending August 26, 2011)

Baltic dry index rose 5.4% last week; Capesize Index was up 5.7%; Panamax Index rose 2.6%; Supramax Index was up 3.7%; Handysize Index rose 2.9%.

My feeling is that the rate increases are mostly sentiment driven and not backed by supply and demand fundamentals.

Iron ore inventory at new all time high, price edging up; Steel inventory and price stable; Coal inventory and price also stable.
