Bill's Corner- An Eastern Spruce Perspective

Inquiry was stronger in the eastern spruce lumber market yesterday. There were fewer orders transacted but there was better optimism among traders in the marketplace. The market is finding its way among the cheaper numbers bantered around versus the orders attained at higher numbers. Clients wasted little time going after and fulfilling whatever needs they had while hearing cheaper numbers on things they did not really need. It led to some confusion but traders that focused on their priorities and not let these distractions cloud their emotions did well yesterday.
