SS&Y Capesize Indices Mixed

Friday, December 10, 1999
Shipbrokers Simpson, Spence and Young's Pacific Capesize Index fell 27 points to 4,428 in the week ending Dec. 6. "A flat week led to a dip of 27 points as the Queensland/Rotterdam route fell 40 cents while routes to Beilun strengthened," SS&Y reported. "Forecast for seaborne trade in steam and coking coal and iron ore look bullish for 2000. A slow first quarter will be turned around by the second quarter for an optimistic 2000 for owners," SS&Y added. SS&Y's Atlantic Capesize Index rose five points to 4,425 last week. "The index had a flat week rising just five points but average earnings for a standard Capesize vessel (161,000 dwt) across the four BCI routes, have risen by 65.7 percent to $16,204 daily from their second quarter low," SS&Y reported.
