A recent news article published in the En Port News states that bunker prices may change irregularly on Jun 10.

MABUX World Bunker Index

MABUX World Bunker Index (consists of a range of prices for 380 HSFO, VLSFO and MGO in the main world hubs) increased on June 09:

380 HSFO – USD/MT – 767.26 (+1.03)

380 HSFO fuel grade was  undervalued

As of Jun. 09, 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  undervalued in three out of four selected ports: Rotterdam – by minus $46 (minus $29 the day before), in Singapore – by minus $119 (minus $81 the day before) and in Fujairah – by minus $42 (minus $5 the day before) This fuel grade remained overcharged in Houston by plus $9 (plus $7 the day before). MABUX MBP/DBP Index (MDI) for 380 HSFO fuel declined in the most of selected ports. The most significant changes were registered in Singapore and Fujairah where the undercharge level increased by 38 and 37 points respectively on June 09.
