The most significant change of MABUX MBP / DBP Index (plus $ 6) was registered in Rotterdam.
VLSFO, according to the MABUX DBP Index, was also underestimated in all selected ports on June 07. The undervalue ranged from minus $ 8 in Houston (versus minus $ 6 a day earlier) and minus $ 25 (minus $ 21 a day earlier) in Rotterdam to minus $ 45 (minus $ 39) in Fujairah and minus $ 43 (minus $ 39) in Singapore.
