I wanted to go to Circus-Circus as you suggested, but I was outvoted. Next time. It was still all good grub - as I've found it to be reliably so in Vegas. Not exceptional value, but I don't mind overpaying if a restaurant doesn't woefully underperform.
Sure glad all my albums went GOLD.

The BDI, along with about every other "indicator" is useless or nearly useless unless:
 You can review the actual source data
 Have a perfect understanding of how that data is collected and from whom
 Have a perfect understanding as to how the data is then processed
In addition, specifically in this case, what are the impacts of externalities such as "excess capacity"
For instance, if the number of ships available just increased significantly and the number of ships on empty backhaul is temporarily up that should crush the index
Conclusion -- it seems the BDI and it's recent plumment is worth a review, but to take that chart on face would be lazy (generally speaking, not pointed at you)
In the end, as presented, it's an interesting chart, but that's about it
