Weekly Wool Prices

Week Ending 17 March (Week 37)

17 March 2017

Another impressive week for wool sellers at Australian wool auctions.

The super fine Merino segment was a standout once more as common gains of 100ac clean/ kg were registered. By the close of selling the AWEX Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) broke new ground once more to escalate to 1546ac clean/kg, a 24ac gain for the week. Greater gains were achieved In USD terms, with the EMI racing 43usc higher to 1187usc clean /kg.
