Midweek Market Report

The firmer finish last week and warmer weather set the tone for an active start to trading in framing lumber. Inquiries reached mills more frequently from buyers who lingered on the sidelines for several weeks. A strong advance in futures on Monday drove replenishment in S-P-F, and mills rebuilt order files. Prices posted solid gains in some species as order files reached the first two weeks of April, but declined in other species as supply exceeded demand. Transportation issues were widespread.
