The last bank holiday for a while and a 4 day week. Prices opened firmer as predicted, although maybe firmer than expected with a 5.98 NOK / 5.34% jump on last weeks close. Monday was bank holiday and the market found more strength on Tuesday for the peak at 119.05. Wednesday and Thursday started to see the market tail off a little. Lower harvest volumes saw reduced supply keeping pricing stronger. Next week there are expectations of more harvesting coming through and Poland is off on Thursday which leads to pricing indicating a little softer than this week. 5/6’s pricing is starting to come back into line now that there is more / or imminently more volumes in this size. EURNOK has been powering away to the highest level since March 2020 benefitting Euro buyers. We shall see.
