In October, trade prices for bulk ordinary Portland cement and for prompt deliveries of bulk ordinary grade clinker slipped in the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea region.
In the same period, East African CFR prices for bagged cement remained flat compared to September.
As observed by Ana Almeida, CW Group’s analyst: "The time has come for cement players to lower prices slightly, as the seasonal trend translates into a less prosperous market activity. However, some key traders have been able to increase their cement sales externally."

The monthly report also includes details about shipping indices for dry bulk trends and its reasons, as well as the latest developments in the bunker oil futures.
