  • Order restored in Baltic indices' values, sectors
    An important point in the Baltic indices was reached on Monday as order was restored in the comparative values of the different sectors.

This was mainly due to a fall in supramax rates and an increase in the panamax TC average. Though panamax and supramax are still only separated by a mere US$48, the fact that the sizes are all in value and size order, does offer some relief that the fundamentals of the dry bulk sector are recovering.
