Prices seemed all over the place in the eastern spruce lumber market to start the new workweek. The mills were pretty much in sync with each other on the items they had but prices bantered around the marketplace were much different. There was no rhyme or reason to it. It was difficult for clients to determine what was real or just plain aggressive quoting. The hunger for orders was very evident. The differences between sources distracted mindsets and flustered many. It also kept buyers hesitant and on the sidelines, making it for a lackluster day of sales.
