As of June 03, 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 remained undervalued in all selected ports: from minus $ 18 in Fujairah (minus $ 12 the day before (t.d.b.)) to minus $ 34 (minus $ 32 t.d.b.) in Rotterdam and minus $ 45 (minus $ 45 t.d.b.) in Singapore. The most significant change of underestimation margin was recorded in Fujairah: a growth by $ 6. The rest of the changes are minor.
