The Baltic Dry Index surged 9.4 percent to 1,325 in the third week of December, its highest level since October 28th and extending a 1.2% advance in the prior week, as higher demand for capesizes and supramax vessels offset a dip in panamax. The capesize index, which tracks iron ore and coal cargos soared 25.7% for the week to 1,802, the highest since November 3rd and the biggest weekly gain in eleven weeks. Also, the supramax index climbed 2.5% to 1,057. On the other hand, the panamax index, which measures coal or grain cargos fell 4.3% to 1,402, the lowest since December 9th. Considering Friday only, the Baltic Dry Index rose 1.8%, mainly due to higher rates for the capesize vessel segment (+5.7%). source: Baltic Exchange

Baltic Exchange Dry Index


Baltic Exchange Dry Index
The Baltic Dry Index is reported daily by the Baltic Exchange in London. The index provides a benchmark for the price of moving the major raw materials by sea. The index is a composite of three sub-indices that measure different sizes of dry bulk carriers: Capesize, which typically transport iron ore or coal cargoes of about 150,000 tonnes; Panamax, which usually carry coal or grain cargoes of about 60,000 to 70,000 tonnes; and Supramax, with a carrying capacity between 48,000 and 60,000 tonnes. The Baltic Dry Index takes into account 23 different shipping routes carrying coal, iron ore, grains and many other commodities.
