The following bunker report has been provided by freight market information provider Baltic Exchange for post on Singapore bunkering publication Manifold Times:
Most of the commodity sector is focused on finance as the banking troubles, put mildly, on both sides of the Atlantic have caused a drop in energy prices. Though commodities should be a safer haven if banking and fin-tech equities are dropping, the bunker market has had a consistent downward slope since last week’s report, and most grades/locations are at their 7-day low as we head towards end-week. High-sulfur / 380 in ARA and Houston are down 10% and 9% respectively, and Fujairah VLSFO is down 9% week on week. Singapore availability remains tight.
