$BDRY Forward Freight Agreement weighting: Capesize: 50%, Panamax: 40%, Supramax: 10%.
A second weekly close at 12.25 close marked Week 19 for $BDRY, and the price action added some weight to our resistance thoughts in the $12 – $14 zone. While reprising Week 18’s gap-up and gains, the overall action for Week 19 was positive.
Now that we’ve seen some minor consolidation at these levels, further attempts at cracking the $12 – $14 barrier may be possible. So far $BDRY hasn’t built enough clout to do so, but shipping index volatility may work in this ETF’s favour. As before however, our $9.00 support ideas still feel too close for comfort.
