Dry Bulk Weekly – September 5, 2011

(For The Week Ending September 2, 2011)

Baltic dry index rose 12.9% last week; Capesize Index was up 26.8%; Panamax Index fell 1.3%; Supramax Index was down 0.6%; Handysize Index rose 0.4%.

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

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