Bit of a sleepy week this week, but that can be expected on the report that has Remembrance Day in it. Historically, this week tends to be one of the slowest of the year, and rightly so, as most will take a moment to reflect and remember those that have fought for the freedom we currently enjoy. It was still an active week though, given that all real estate activities are shut down on November 11th, so it only goes to show that this current market doesn't skip a beat. There was only a few variations this week to overall activity, and they included the reporting of higher sales values for the week, the increase of the average days oil market across the board, and slight reductions to the six month average median values in both tracked products. Does that mean to say things are slowing down finally? Likely not, but the next few weeks will certainly be an indication of where we might be headed as we get ready to welcome in the new year. Make sure you stop by to find out which way we go, and thanks for stopping by!
