Wool market continues uphill trajectory to break 1000c/kg

Merino-fleeceThe wool market has continued its uphill trajectory, edging above 1000c for the first time since early August.

The AWEX EMI rose 59c to 996c on Tuesday and a further 40c on Wednesday to finish the week at 1036c or 739c USD.

The pass in rate has fallen further to 2.6%, indicating a good level of buyer confidence.

The tightened supply that has been seen at the physical auctions in the past few weeks has been a major contributor to the rising market.

Growers may now not be so reluctant to sell at the current prices which could lead to a surge in volume in the coming weeks, with the potential for the market to peak as supply outpaces demand.

With only one market in China currently operating and many external influences having a large effect the current uphill trajectory may not be sustained.

The online offer board may have just experienced its busiest week to date with a total of 1468 bales sold.

The bulk was sold on Tuesday and Wednesday with 645 and 436 bales sold respectively. 15µ and 16µ micron wool sold up to 1245c and 1210c greasy or 1671c and 1673c dry.
