Midweek Market Report
Monday’s countervailing duties announcement on Canadian softwood lumber exports into the U.S. distracted lumber and structural panel markets alike. Traders paused to digest the news and gauge the market’s reaction. Uncertainty over what to do left the marketplace unsettled. Trading in Western and Eastern S-P-F came to a standstill. Mills raised quotes but sold nothing. Anticipation grew among buyers that prices were due for a downward shift. Rain along the Atlantic Coast slowed consumption.
