A deep plunge
The negative end of last week pushed the UP Index to a deep loss. This decline was in synchronization with the U.S. and other stock markets.

Two constituents of the UP Index moved up: SM Korea Line Corporation (KRX: 005880) and Norwegian Awilco LNG (OSE: ALNG), gaining 8.4% and 7.1%
Skepticism on the stock markets, world supply chain and rising inflation continue pushing world stock markets down. But remember that autumn and winter is the best season for LNG shippers.
