Baltic Dry Index is up more than 200% year to date.  We are now seeing China ( FXI , quote ) restocking  its coal and steel after 6 to 9 months of de-stocking.

This means - you have legs on this trade which at one point only looked like a "trade".

In other words, ore, steel, and shipper stocks were so beaten up not a surprise to see bounce.

But this is more than dead cat.

I like large cape size shippers here but watch the balance sheets.

Bigger is better...
