Activity and sales did pick up in the eastern spruce lumber market yesterday, but there was a lethargic tone to the market. Prices were sideways with much commonality among the mills. Shipments from most were within two weeks. There were lower numbers bantered about in the market, not from the mills but among traders pushing the limits as to where they would trade or take chances at. Dealers were content with what they had for inventories, not worried, or pressured that price would appreciate anytime soon. The market seemed in good balance with supply and demand.
