WEEK ENDING 12/08/17
Trading was at a slower pace as buyers kept a wary eye on paring things down for year end. SPF pricing continued to soften this week, while SYP ticked up again. Green DF rose slightly on lighter trading. Log prices remain high and are pricing some mills out of the market. OSB seems to have bottomed in many western markets, but markets in the SE and mid Atlantic states continue to drop in price. Availability on prompt shipments tends to tighten as many OSB contracts do not include the last two weeks of the calendar year. Do your best to stay ahead of your needs at year end, as quick loads become problematic. Eyes are on the fires in Southern California as the winds kick up and spread them rapidly.
