U.S. lumber and panel market reports

June 10, 2016

U.S.: Lumber and panel market report ---- Week 23  2016
Random Lengths Lumber Market Report
For much of the week, framing lumber markets muddled along at a pedestrian pace. That changed Thursday when a limit-up move in futures pulled buyers off the sidelines. Sales picked up most notably in Western and Eastern S-P-F, while carryover into other species was mixed. In the West, inquiries for Coast dry framing picked up, but sales didn’t always follow suit. Southern Pine traders were wary, as they weighed mixed signals. Despite the S-P-F rally, the Random Lengths Framing Lumber Composite fell $3.

Random Lengths Panel Market Report
Structural panel prices were flat to down amid lukewarm demand. In OSB markets, price erosion that began in Western Canada spread to other regions across North America. Some producers opened to deep counters to sell loads available for quick shipment. Southern Pine rated sheathing prices eased lower amid sporadic trading. Mills accepted modest counters when those transactions helped them clear loads for shipment next week. Sales of western Fir plywood held to a steady pace. Some producers tried pushing quotes higher on some items but got mixed results.
