$BDRY Forward Freight Agreement weighting: Capesize: 50%, Panamax: 40%, Supramax: 10%.
Week 21 saw $BDRY once again on the threshold of our $12 – $14 upside resistance thoughts, closing at $12.21. Almost erasing the previous week’s fall, BDRY hit an $11.75 low early on before a tentative climb to the close.
BDRY may be building a support base just below present levels, even as we keep an eye on our previous support thoughts in the $9 area. Any results of a possible squeeze remain to be seen, and upside resistance may still have the upper hand. So far BDRY appears to be in ‘hurry-up-and-wait’ mode, with a reluctance to push further. A little more dry bulk shipping optimism may be the key.
