Der „Baltic Dry Index“ misst den Waren Transport auf den Meeren, dieser ist auf den niedrigsten Stand seit Bestehen, für einen November (Weihnachtsgeschäft!).
„Disaster closing in: autumn is supposed to be a good time for the index. In other words, consumers are purchasing more goods for a variety of reasons. The school year is beginning and so is the holiday season. The actual growth arc is from the middle of summer through Thanksgiving. But that arc has been notably absent this year as the Index has moved disturbingly down during the season of its greatest supposed strength. At a level of 631, this is the lowest cost for Baltic Dry Freight Index for this time of year in history.“
