Sustained losses for finer microns

The Australian wool market has continued to trend lower for the third consecutive week, with the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) falling 13 cents to close at 1,306c/kg.

Main buyer interest continued to be in the medium and broad micron ranges, with prices on offer similar to the previous week as individual Micron Price Guides (MPGs) for 19.0 ‑ 22.0 micron ranged from +11 to ‑14 cents nationally.

The finer end of the Merino spectrum didn’t receive the same level of support, the hardest hit being the 17.5 micron and finer range where MPGs dropped 69 ‑ 135 cents.

The finer microns have now suffered sustained losses over the previous three weeks, with the largest falls occurring in the Southern MPGs for 16.5, 17.0 and 17.5 micron which have fallen by 306 (‑10.6%), 272 (‑10.3%) and 273 (11.5%) cents respectively.

The current nine‑week stretch where the EMI has failed to record an increase is the longest run without a week‑on‑week rise in the benchmark indicator in almost 19 years.

The EMI is quickly approaching 1300 cents, and is now at its lowest level in 16 months.

The crossbred sector performed with mixed results this week, with the 26.0 and 30.0 micron MPGs recording overall increases, while the 28.0 micron MPGs dropped in both centres, falling to 363 in the North and 373 in the South, the lowest levels in 22 years.
