Bunker prices look like they are falling – Bearish signals in sight
VLSFO Prices Under Threat
After the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the sharp price spike in early March, VLSFO has eased back and moved within the $800-900/mt range for more than a month. However, at the start of this week prices took a $40/mt dive to the low of the recent range; there are a lot of bearish news stories in the market and prices look vulnerable for another fall.
Within these price movements it is still worth noting that, unlike the historical norm, Rotterdam VLSFO prices have remained at or above Singapore quotes throughout this period. VLSFO pricing could continue this way, with more extreme pressures on Europe because of its closer proximity to the Russian market.
