In short...


Another day of Cape physical bouncing along the bottom, what will change it? Not a lot at the moment! On the stock markets with bullish news with reduced interest rates stateside, this bought some buyers to the market. April traded to $7,000, Q3 to $15,800, Q4 $17,000 and Cal21 to $13,850. This optimism is likely to be short-lived though unless any improvements occur on physical.
