In short...

Cape

An interesting day for a change on the Capes, as the curve saw some re-aligning, as the Mar v Apr spread narrowed in, March holding well at $5,700 (flat on the day) and Apr getting sold down to $8,300 (-550); Q2 was sold down a tick to $11,250 before finding support, whilst the quarters took a hit printing down to $16,650 (-500) and $17,750 (-550) on Q3 and Q4 respectively. However, unless we can see an improvement in levels on the physical in the coming days, further pressure on the front of the curve is likely to become inevitable.
