Weekly Wool Prices

Week Ending February 13 (Week 33)

13 February 2015

The good run of price rises came to a halt this week at Australian wool auctions as rapidly growing upcoming auction volumes seemed to spook the spot market for the time being. The Merino Fleece sector came under some negative adjustment, but all other sectors fared exceptionally well. Whilst the EMI (Eastern Market Indicator) lost 9ac/clean kg to finish the week’s selling at 1092ac/ clean kg, very diverse results were achieved over the different market segments, as buyers exercised caution heading into the slowdown that occurs over the Chinese New Year period.
