Midweek Market Report

Trading slowed as customers digested shipments and sought a clearer picture of the market’s near-term direction. Sales at the mill level were measured at best, as trading was concentrated at the secondary level. The quiet start limited price increases, which flattened from the previous weeks’ sharp upward tilt. Reports of railcar shortages among Canadian mills were widespread. Mills fell back on order files that mostly stretched to early March.
