The Baltic Exchange Dry Index extended losses for a sixth straight session, slipping 4.1% to 4,854 on Friday, its lowest since September 27th, as falling iron ore prices continued to weigh on capesize rates. The capesize index, which tracks iron ore and coal cargos of 150,000-tonnes, slumped 8.2% to 7,767, its lowest since September 27th; while the panamax index which tracks cargoes of about 60,000 to 70,000 tonnes of coal and grains, rose 1% to 4,065, its highest in three months. Among smaller vessels, the supramax index added 34 points to a fresh record high of 3,576, according to Refinitiv going back until 2017.

Baltic Exchange Dry Index
The Baltic Dry Index is reported daily by the Baltic Exchange in London. The index provides a benchmark for the price of moving the major raw materials by sea. The index is a composite of three sub-indices that measure different sizes of dry bulk carriers: Capesize, which typically transport iron ore or coal cargoes of about 150,000 tonnes; Panamax, which usually carry coal or grain cargoes of about 60,000 to 70,000 tonnes; and Supramax, with a carrying capacity between 48,000 and 60,000 tonnes. The Baltic Dry Index takes into account 23 different shipping routes carrying coal, iron ore, grains and many other commodities.
