Baltic Dry Index 187 Away From Triple Digits

The freefall in the BDIY is just ridiculous: following a steep plunge it has now gone in freefall, and is down 3.9% overnight to 1,186. And to all who are claiming that the index is merely indicating a supply glut from the onslaught of new ship arrivals, well the entire orderbook (in progress) has been public and transparent - to claim it is a surprise is about as "naive" as stating that 5 computers and a bunch of NYU kids control the US stock market. As for how much longer it will keep dropping? Well: he post Lehman low was 663. There is still a lot of pain. Especially if one is a non-chartered dry bulk shipper... With leverage.
