EMI loses 32 cents

The positive movements and buoyant tone experienced during last week’s sales has been short lived, with the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) losing 32 cents for the week to close at 1,224c/kg ‑ its lowest point since January 2021.

Buyer sentiment was noticeably more subdued from the outset of day one, with individual Micron Price Guides (MPGs) for Merino fleece wool falling 4 ‑ 44 cents.

The only exception was the 17 micron MPG in the South, which gained four cents, and the 20 and 21 micron MPGs in the North which remained unchanged.

These losses combined, with reductions in the crossbred and skirting sectors, resulted in a 17 cent fall in the EMI.

The second day was almost a carbon copy of the first, with prices again reduced as buyers attempted to find value in the falling market.

The MPGs lost a further 4 ‑ 30 cents with the one exception, this time the 17 micron MPG in the South which managed a 10 cent rise.

The total dollar amount sold this season has nearly reached the billion dollar mark.

There was $46.04 million worth of wool sold nationally this week, pushing the total amount this season to $996 million.

At the corresponding sale of the 2021/22 season, this figure was $1,021 million.

A noteworthy event happened in the North this week, as the 28 micron MPG dropped to 313 cents, its lowest point on record on Tuesday.

Next week’s national offering rises again, with there currently expected to be 44,775 bales on offer.
