New car marketNewsCV ShownewsUsed caranalysisNewsRecruitmentdigestDealerprofileShowroomdynamics of the used car marketless exaggerated though there are still movements, albeit small ones. However, if we dig further and re-examine the month looking at the same sectors as previously the changes are more marked, as the chart highlights.The lower and upper medium sectors steadily rose throughout the first three weeks before a marginal downturn into the last week. In contrast the SUV sector declined week-on-week throughout the whole month while the convertible sectors, after a slow first week, sharply improved in week three.This, in a nutshell, is why we have introduced Black Book Live. Purchase or disposal decisions are made on an almost daily basis and fine-tuning your timing for either activity can make a significant difference in terms of money gained or lost. Multiply each of those buy/sell decisions by the actual number of units involved and the fluctuations will add up to very considerable sums from day-to-day and week-to- week, even in a relatively stable market. Of course monthly market price variations will always be an important benchmark for reporting and decision making, but the days are gone when that level of detail will suffice. The market changes daily and that is why we are now endeavouring to reflect exactly how.????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
