Steadying week for market

Week 39 saw a steadying of the Australian wool market, which recorded small overall increases after three consecutive weeks of losses.

A working group has been convened to minimise the impact of COVID‑19 on the wool industry, with the members meeting daily.

On their recommendations, wool auctions were moved from enclosed rooms into more open‑air environments to meet social distancing requirements, while the National Auction Selling Committee (NASC) has scheduled a sale in Week 42 (which was an Easter recess) to maximise trading before a potential shutdown.

Due to concerns over the possible disruption to supply, buyers were keen with the main focus on the finer microns.

This pushed individual Micron Price Guides (MPGs) for 18.0 micron and finer up by 6 ‑ 39 cents across the country.

The broader microns didn’t fare as well, with MPGs for 21 micron and coarser falling by 23 ‑ 26 cents for the series.

The gains in the finer microns was enough to push the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) higher by 4 cents for the week, closing at 1,442 cents.

When viewed in USD terms the gains were more considerable, equating to a jump of 53 US cents for the series.

Next week’s sale is slightly larger, as sellers scramble to get their wool to auction.

Currently, there is 45,810 bales on offer in Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle.
