Dear Sirs:

Would it be possible to continue the Baltic Exchange Dry Index Series.
It is a useful indicator for commodity business activity, and sentiment.

With thanks,

Hi Charles:

The Guggenheim Shipping ETF (SEA) could be used as a proxy for the Baltic Dry Index.
You can download an Excel spreadsheet from the Guggenheim website at –

Data goes back to June 11.2010, when this ETF started trading.

It would be useful to track this index – it is an important indicator of the Global Economy and how things are REALLY doing – independent of the nonsense spun by the main street media and Wall Street!

Hi Charles,

I agree, could you update this index, it would be great to have it updated every release of your bulletin. And also to have the British pound on the front page with the rest of the currencies.
