I think the material you provide is a great help in understanding the market and we take a variety of decisions based on it. Wood is a raw material and hence exposed to heavy impact on demand and price due to the instantaneous balance between supply and demand. You have to be 'logged on' all the time to understand where the market is going. He who can 'see around the corner', ie assessing the development 6-12 months ahead will get a commercial and profitable advantage. Your material provides many pieces in that puzzle.
