First fully firm market for five years

The Australian wool market has stopped its run of downward movements this week, as the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) finished unchanged at 1,342c/kg ‑ the first time the EMI recorded no movement for the week since September 2017.

From the start of the sale, the market quickly found a level similar to the previous week and generally traded within 30 cents of these levels throughout.

This was reflected in the individual Micron Price Guides (MPGs) for Merino fleece, which across the country ranged between ‑16 and +30 cents.

These movements, combined with minimal movements in the crossbred section (the MPGs ranged from ‑3 to +5 cents), the oddments (the three Merino Carding Indicators fell by an average of just over 4 cents) and general losses in the skirtings of between 10 to 20 cents, had the net result of an overall fully firm market.

In an opposite trend to the previous week, a weakening AUD meant when viewed in USD terms the EMI finished 18 cents lower.

As quantities in the West do not warrant a sale next week, the national offering reduces for the following sale.

Currently, there is 40,116 bales on offer with only Sydney and Melbourne in operation.

Next week (Week 8) is also host to the annual Wool Week, giving industry stakeholders the opportunity to come together at a series of events held in Melbourne.
