Some interest late last week, albeit below the closing level, was enough to stimulate more widespread buyer support at the new level. It was a significantly better market tone in the sale room. Prices did however ease further as buyers search for a level in which they can sell and global market and political uncertainties ensure a lack of overall confidence. Still, it was a much better result than the past two weeks.
