Pre-Easter recess price increases

With this week the final opportunity to purchase wools for immediate shipment before the Easter recess, the Australian wool market has recorded price increases for the second straight week.

The shortened week (due to the Good Friday Public Holiday) meant that Melbourne was restricted to a two‑day sale, but despite this the national quantity increased to 44,220 bales.

Strongest buyer demand was in the finer microns, with Micron Price Guides (MPGs) for 18.5 micron and finer rising 8 ‑ 56 cents nationally.

There was still solid support for the medium/broad Merino wools, with MPG movements for 19 ‑ 22 micron ranging between ‑12 and +12 cents.

Overall, the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) added 15 cents for the week, closing at 1,300c/kg (at the same time last year the EMI was at 1,287c/kg).

For the first time in a month, the entire crossbred sector recorded positive movement, with MPGs for 26 ‑ 32 micron gaining 2 ‑ 20 cents.

The oddments recorded minimal movements, reflected in the Merino Carding (MC) indicators which moved by an average of only four cents.

Next week is the annual one‑week Easter recess, with sales to resume in the week beginning Monday, April 12th.
