The ocean market in 2017 was more stable, with greater predictability (fewer blank sailings), an early and flattened-out peak season, and price levels between 5% and 20% higher than in 2016. This was mostly driven by the unsustainable market in 2016 that led to Hanjin’s bankruptcy and massive consolidation. Further significant disruptions were caused by the Petya malware virus and storms like Hurricane Harvey, leading to delays, re-routings, and temporary capacity issues.

 As predicted yesterday the market “improved” today following its midweek fall, an easy job to do being familiarised with volatility which enable us to foresee the asymmetrical behaviour of the indices. Geopolitics continue an erratic course. John Faraclas daily briefing:

 

The BDI gained 24 points and now read 1,361…

Panamaxes did better and the BPI now stands at 1,499 – up 35 points.

 

The Supras were up too[ the BSI gained 27 points and now stands at 950 approaching the 1,000 point mark.
