Lumber price starts to regain lost ground

Lumber has enjoyed a positive October thus far, with price currently on track for the best monthly performance since February. While many will be thankful for the decline in key commodities such as Lumber, this may be about to change if seasonal trends are anything to go by. Looking at the 15-year averages, we can see that the fourth quarter has often proved the saviour for bulls. That year-end rally could yet come to fruition this time around given the fact that we are currently on track for a 23% rise in this month alone.

A breakdown of those numbers highlight that November typically provides the best average return (7.4%), with December proving the most reliant month for bulls (73% gain frequency).

Charts signal potential for a major bullish reversal

The monthly chart brings a wider perspective, with price having slipped back into the $411 level that represented the peaks in 2005 and 2013. While price has slipped below the crucial $460 support level, the $20-40 zone does represent a historical area where price trades within. That highlights the potential for price to reverse from this region.

The daily chart highlights how the selloff has been losing traction. The recent rebound takes price into the 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level at $540. Crucially, we remain within a trend of lower highs, with a push through the $578 swing-high required to signal the end of this bearish 2022 trend.

    • I used to enjoy playing poker and blackjack at casinos, but my love for gambling turned into an addiction when I started losing more often than winning. It took hitting rock bottom for me to seek help and change my habits. I joined a support group and worked with a therapist to develop healthier habits. Now, I still go to casinos, but I do so with caution and moderation, setting strict limits and avoiding addictive games. I've learned to control my impulses and make smarter decisions when it comes to my finances.
    • Hi @MayorofBelsize and All,  After checking with the relevant team, the integration will be finalized to mid year. It will be a staggered launch so not all countries will get access at the same time. We will confirm the details of the integration and the date by email to all our clients. We apologize for the delay and inconvenience.  All the best, OfentseIG
