The Baltic Dry Index, also referred to as BDI, is a number issued on a daily basis by the London based Baltic Exchange. The Baltic Dry Index is not limited to Baltic Sea countries, instead this index tracks the prices of worldwide international shipping of a variety of dry bulk cargoes. The Baltic Dry Index is made up of the average of the Baltic Supramax, Panamax, and Capesize indices. These indices are based on the assessment of a panel of international ship broking companies. The Baltic Dry Index is based on the US Dollar, therefore, it is also influenced by the changes in value of the US Dollar.
