Midweek Market Report

The trading pace in many framing lumber markets slowed. $15-limit-down drops in futures over the past three trading days were a key reason. Sensing increased downside risk, secondaries put a greater onus on selling. Still, many prices either held or gained on the strength of limited supplies, and/or extended order files. Buyers had little or no inventories to lean on. Trading in panels was steady, with mills able to raise prices incrementally.
