Fluctuating first market of 2020

The Australian wool market resumed this week after the annual Christmas recess, bringing another volatile sale with large price fluctuations.

With 52,261 bales on offer, large price increases were immediately, with all types and descriptions across merino microns rising 90 ‑ 140 cents by the end of the first day (with the individual Merino Price Guides (MPGs) in Sydney and Melbourne jumping 93 ‑ 135 cents).

These increases helped to push the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) up by 79 cents, the largest daily rise since September last year.

With the Western region missing out on the price rises of the first day, Fremantle opened very strongly, with general price rises of 90 ‑ 100 cents.

However, midway through the sale, buyers started to continually reduce their limits as they accumulated wool. By the end of the day the price rises had almost completely deteriorated.

The downward trend experienced in the West was continued when Melbourne opened on the final day, so much so that the Southern MPGs for 17.5 micron and coarser fell by 27 ‑ 77 cents and the EMI lost 34 cents for the day.

Despite the final day losses, the EMI still recorded overall positive movement for the series, adding 51 cents for the week to close at 1,609 cents per kilogram clean.

Next week’s national offering increases to 59,890 bales.
