As of Mar.02, a correlation of MABUX MBP Index (Market Bunker Prices) vs MABUX DBP Index (Digital Bunker Prices Benchmark) in four largest global hubs showed that 380 HSFO fuel grade was overvalued in three out of four selected ports: Rotterdam – by plus $7 (minus $9 the day before), in Fujairah – by plus $31 (minus $26 the day before), in Houston by plus $12 (plus $27 the day before). In Singapore this fuel grade remained undercharged by minus $26 (minus $34 the day before),. The most significant changes were registered in Fujairah – the undercharge level increased by $57 on Mar.02 and this fuel grade became overcharged.
