Midweek Market Report

Traders continued to anticipate a buying surge, but found the early pace lagging after last week’s more active finish in framing lumber and structural panel markets. Steep double-digit discounts dissipated, but buyers lacked urgency. Wintry conditions prevailed across a number of key consuming regions. Forecasts showing drier and warmer weather were greeted enthusiastically.
