EMI down as market returns from recess

The Australian wool market returned from the mid‑year recess to record substantial losses, with the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) falling by 45 cents to close 1,342c/kg.

With 55,363 bales on offer, buyers were very cautious in their purchases as the market opened, resulting in a price fall from the opening lot that continued as the day progressed.

By the end of the day, general losses in the Merino fleece types of 5 ‑ 100 cents pushed individual Micron Price Guides (MPGs) down 5 ‑ 98 cents, which combined with falls in all other sectors, pushed the EMI down by 37 cents for the day.

The second day of selling saw the market settle in parts, as buyers were more confident in price levels. Merino fleece MPG movements across the country were varied, ranging from ‑50 to +24 cents, as the EMI dropped by a further seven cents.

On the final day, the market finished on a reasonably positive note with only Melbourne in operation, as the market recorded only minimal price movements and the EMI dropped by the smallest of margins.

Due to a strengthening of the Australian dollar (when compared to the USD, the AUD has gained 3.16 cents since the previous sale in July), when viewed in USD terms the EMI recorded a positive movement of 12 USc for the week.

Next week’s national offering remains large as the backlog of wool continues to flow onto the market, with there currently expected to be 49,338 bales on offer.
