|Floating Price||The Floating Price for each contract month is equal to the arithmetic average of the freight rate published each day during the Settlement Period by the Baltic Exchange for the TC12 freight route (i.e. Sikka, West Coast India to Chiba, Japan for cargoes of 35,000 metric tons, or as subsequently amended) valued in Worldscale points multiplied by the applicable Worldscale flat rate for the TC12 route (as defined by Baltic Exchange).
The Floating Price is determined by multiplying each daily freight rate by the applicable Worldscale flat (for that day), and subsequently calculating the average for the Settlement Period.
