Some of this is like fingernails on a chalk board to me. I will believe that Encore Wire is in the speculation business when I read it in a company report. Until then I will assume that excess wire inventory is used to leverage out orders at a below competition prices. Or atleast thats how I buy it. There is one MAJOR reason prices are currently going up and when someone actually says it and not the default "copper is up" I will applaud them for their dd. IT ISNT FUTURES SPECULATION.
