Weekly Wool Prices

Week Ending 16 June (Week 50)

16 June 2017

Positive movements across all type categories featured at Australian wool auction markets. The AWEX EMI (eastern market indicator) increased 28ac/clean kg or 1.9% for the week to break through the 1500c barrier once again and closed at 1506ac/clean kg. This level is almost 18% higher or 227ac more, year on year. The EMI when measured in USD outstripped the AUD gains this week and rose 2.8% or 31usc to 1147usc/clean kg. At this level we are 200usc higher than 12 months prior and that is well over 20% higher in USD terms which is significant given the world largely buys wool in this currency.
