Bill's Corner- An Eastern Spruce Perspective

Early orders to start the day yesterday boosted confidence and energized traders in the eastern spruce lumber market. There was good demand especially on 2x4 random and stud products. Activity along with new orders did subside later in the day. Dealers voiced inconsistencies with their business keeping additional purchases at bay. One day they had good takeaway and the next little. Prices did firm up on the many items that the mills were selling while they were open to counters on the few things that were not. Mill shipments pushed into early June.
