Midweek Market Report

Trading was measured in both lumber and structural panels. Buyers digested recent purchases, and mills fell back on order files. Some traders noted the market had shifted into “holiday mode.” Cold and rainy weather hampered consumption in the Southeast, and cold weather in northern tier states affected sales. Buyers had limited immediate needs. Traders watched to see what transpires with the expiration of the November futures contract on Thursday.
