Wool market review - week ending 28 June 2013 (Week 52)

After a period of handy price escalations over the past few weeks, the wool markets in Australia couldn't maintain the trend and disappointingly finished the 2012/13 selling season on a weak note. Whilst the Superfine end of the Merino offering was well sought in a very large selection; the fine and medium fleece and skirting types suffered somewhat and lost considerable ground over the course of the week, apart from the broadest end (coarser than 22.0 micron) which remains solid in demand in a rapidly diminishing volume up for sale.

In the lowest volume of weekly bale offerings seen this season, the wool auction market did what most industry players expected it to do, and that was to be firm to slightly dearer. With Fremantle not having sufficient quantity to offer a commercial sale this week, and Sydney only having enough lots to make up one day of selling for the week, a stronger market looked inevitable.

Wool market review - week ending 24 May 2013 (Week 47)

The Australian wool markets continued in a generally positive direction this week, although the all too common roller coaster pattern became evident by the close of selling. At one point of the series, all Merino fleece types were showing gains of 30 to 35acents but, by weeks end, rises of just 10 to 20acents were recorded as prices eased markedly as selling drew to cessation.
