The Baltic Dry Index, which tracks rates for ships ferrying dry bulk commodities, continued the upward momentum in August supported by stronger demand across all vessel categories. Metals and steel demand from the construction and manufacturing industry in China, the world's top metals consumer, has strengthened, as infrastructure investment has accelerated on the recent uptick in industrial activity.

Historically, Baltic Exchange Dry Index reached an all time high of 11793 in May of 2008. Baltic Exchange Dry Index - data, forecasts, historical chart - was last updated on August of 2020. source: Baltic Exchange
