The capesize market took a hammering throughout the week as the lack of cargoes and tonnage oversupply problem persisted. The under-pressure capesize market pulled the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) to a five-month low at 1,139 points, down 25 points day-on-day at Thursday, 18 January 2018. The low shipping demand coincided with the low steel demand from China, due to relatively lesser construction activities and ongoing environmental emission controls enforcement in the country.
Profit-taking and cyclones have summed up the freight market this week. First, the shippers’ profit-taking continued into the week ended on 12 January 2018 and saw the capesize paper market ventured into the red. By Wednesday, an early selloff in the capesize papers set the tone for the day, with the index being talked down approximately down $1,500 in the morning session.
Happy New Year to all. The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) closed at 1,262 points on Wednesday, up 32 points, seeming to extend the course of dry bulk recovery in 2018. New Year optimism some may say, but the high dry bulk index finds its backing on the robust capesize rates. “The bullish tone on capes continued on Wednesday with paper rates surging on the run up to index,” noted an Asia-based FIS FFA broker.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
