Strong Seller's Market

In the last few weeks, the market has been at a stasis point in terms of sales to inventory. However, prices seem to have been falling a bit recently. Technically supply levels indicate this is a Seller’s market so it is likely that the downward pricing pressure will be light or variable. Watch for an up-shift in the MAI before price stability is achieved.
