Merino types bolster EMI

Pushed mainly by increases in selected Merino fleece types, the Australian wool market recorded another small increase this week with the Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) gaining five cents to close at 1,346c/kg.

With 39,577 bales available to the trade, good style wools 17.5 micron and finer recorded solid increases with individual Micron Price Guides (MPGs) in Sydney and Melbourne adding 5 ‑ 35 cents.

Wools 20.0 micron and broader also attracted strong buyer demand, pushing prices higher with MPGs for 20 ‑ 22 rising 6 ‑ 20 cents nationally.

The EMI has now risen for three consecutive selling weeks for the first time in the 2021/22 selling season.

The total dollar amount sold through the auction system passed the $1 billion mark in this series, with the higher prices being achieved this season compared to last meaning this feat was achieved much earlier than last season ‑ in the 2020/21 season the billion‑dollar mark was not reached until Week 32 (February).

The carding market also had a very steady series, with minimal price movements in locks, stains and crutchings bringing about an average rise in the three Merino Carding indicators (MC) of one cent.

Next week's offering remains similar, with 41,362 bales currently expected to be offered.
