How Knowing The Price of Lumber Will Improve Your Next Architecture Project

For 27 years, Michael Wisnefski has been actively trading commodities. Lumber is his specialty, where he is active in both the futures markets and the physically traded material.

In July 2019, Wisnefski founded MaterialsXchange, a B2B digital marketplace for buying and selling lumber and structural wood panel. The inspiration for this business came from his experience trading lumber futures. In 2009 He was the first trader in the lumber futures pit at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange to use a hand held computer.

Prior to that, Wisnefski was active in the financial markets trading futures on equities and government bonds, while also working as VP of Business Development for a Lumber wholesale distributor.
