From The Cromford Report.

Mike Orr is not prone to exaggeration.

The change in market balance accelerated during October reaching a shocking pace we almost never see. Only in the second half of 2005 have we seen demand drop at this exceptional speed. Those who think this is just a seasonal effect are mistaken. Demand has been falling dramatically for the past 3 months and October saw that rate increase rather than moderate.

I better look into this!
