As fast as they came, they went even faster. The small inventory increase last week created a bit of unease in the market, with some scratching their heads in wonder; what would happen next?. Fear not, it appears last week was a simple anomaly, and one that should be pretty standard from time to time if you are checking in with blog on the regular. This week witnessed a fairly sizeable chunk of inventory reduce in quick fashion, which was felt by all tracked products. Not only did sales report above average this week, the values overall also had a good week, with sales numbers reporting over the last few weeks and increasing in a season that usually sees them slip a bit. Seems to be a bit of a resurgence in the market in the last week or so, which was a big question mark, especially coming off the insanely hot Spring market. This weeks report certainly shows signs of life in the market yet, so it will be interesting to ride the wave to its conclusion. Stay tuned to the blog to keep on top of the market, and don't be afraid to reach out if you are looking for assistance wading through the current market environment. Thanks for stopping by!
