Still nudging at our $12 -$14 resistance zone from Week 18, $BDRY reached a high of $12.65 but closed off the week at $12.30.
Our RSI kept climbing, reaching 60.54 as $BDRY made barely noticeable highs. The MACD almost reached its zero point, both indicators still showing some strength although the RSI causes a little peakish concern.
As $BDRY continues to poke at our Week 18 resistance ideas, our thoughts of possible support building around $10.50 – $11.00 are still there. A glance at last week’s Baltic Shipping Index charts (see below) shows a drop-off in the Supramax and Panamax sectors while the Capesize category surged, tempering the others’ weakness. BDRY’s sideways travel may linger a while.
