Widespread demand pushes wool prices higher

Wool-3The wool market gained last week with the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator up 26c on Tuesday then rising a further 28c on Wednesday to close out the week at 1198c/kg, or 892c in US dollar terms.

The market continues to strengthen following last week’s close as strong widespread demand helps push prices higher.

All sectors saw an increase in demand as the week’s pass in rate sits at 5.1%, a continued positive shift after last week’s 10.5% pass in rate. Next week will see the final auctions for the calendar year as sales will recess for three weeks.
