What would you give to have a copy of next week's Wall Street Journal TODAY?

Volatility is the Lumber Buyer's Best Friend
Lumber prices change, either up or down, an average of 37 weeks per year. At $600 fob mill, prices change an average of $14 per week with $20 changes very common. At $300 fob mill, prices change an average of $5 per week with $20 changes very rare. The lumber market may seem complicated, however there are relationship imbalances between supply and demand that occur every week.
These phenomena create massive opportunities for lumber producers, wholesalers, lumber dealers, wood preservers, component manufacturers, and builders.
