In short...


A very uneventful day with tight ranges on cape, Q2 traded lower on open to $10,600 but found some support and closed at $10,850 value, the cal 21 has again held firm with $13,000 and $13,100 printing, the case remains the same, physical weak but everyone expecting a spike again, so we continue to have huge premiums along the curve.

Panamax paper closed the day in positive territory with Feb trading back to $4,500; March to $6,850 and Q2 to $9,000. A stronger afternoon of buying interest also moved the Cal 21 Panamax to $9,700. The question now is whether or not the gains can be consolidated and if there is further upside from here against the continuingly negative spot market.
