Midweek Market Report

Downside pressure increased in most framing lumber species. Buyers kept a low profile, amid growing concern of downside risk. Price cuts varied from species to species, and mill to mill. Wintry weather in the East slowed consumption, while ideal weather conditions enveloped much of the South. Panel sales lagged; mills leaned heavily on order files to hold firm on prices.
