Midweek Market Report

A bearish tone grew more prevalent in softwood lumber and structural panel markets. Near-record prices in many markets kept buyers only purchasing enough to fill in inventory, amid increasing fears of downside risk. Traders awaited next week’s countervailing duty gap period. Rains of recent weeks in the South gave way to more moderate weather. More prompt loadings popped up.
