Midweek Market Report

Early trading was measured. Prices were mostly firm to higher, as mills pushed up quotes on momentum from the previous week. An exception was in the South, as heavy rain soaked job sites and slowed the flow of lumber. Some lumber buyers stepped back amid the pending anti-dumping duty determination, while others covered needs and showed little concern about the trade issue. Structural panel mills, bolstered by order files, kept mild upward pressure on sheathing prices.
