VM levels key to Merino market

The Australian wool market has recorded a small overall decrease this week, with the Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) dropping five cents to close at 1,408c/kg.

With 47,251 bales presented, the fleece market was a “tale of two types” as vegetable matter (vm) levels played a significant role.

Good style wools carrying less than 1.5% vm were limited in supply and highly sought after, wools carrying less than 1.0% vm even more so, keeping prices within 20 cents of last week’s closing levels.

The opposite was true of the abundance of higher vm lots available (only 40.7% of the total fleece offering had less than 1.0% of vm), which lacked buyer support and dropped 30 ‑ 50 cents for the week, a major contributor to the 13.7% of the fleece passed in.

The EMI has had an up and down run since Week 33, rising on all even numbered weeks (for a gain of 7 cents) and falling on odd numbered weeks (for a loss of 19 cents).

The EMI is still 131 cents higher than the corresponding sale of last season.

Next week’s sales return to the normal Tuesday and Wednesday selling pattern, with Melbourne able to conduct a third selling day (Thursday), which has in turn pushed the national offering higher.

48,286 bales are currently expected to be offered in Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle.
