Shipbuilding Orders Evaporate As Baltic Dry Collapses

The silence is deafening still about the ongoing collapse in the Baltic Dry Index among mainstream media types (as it just might challenge the hope/hype that growth is coming back). At the dismal level of 1002, BDIY is at 8-month lows and has fallen 14 days in a row… but now it is having a real world impact. As Sea News reportsKorean shipping companies are failing to place orders for large vessels and anxiety over the future is forcing some local companies to dispose of their assets despite the relatively low shipbuilding costs as of late.

The Baltic Dry is down 14 days in a row at $1002 – its lowest in 8 months (and worst start to a year on record).
