Price variations on all types apart from carding wools were minimal with just 5 or 10ac movements either side of the established values at Australian Wool auctions recently. The strengthening Australian dollar (AUD) against the US dollar (USD) was the most influential price determination factor. The declining quality of wools available also played a role. The Australian Wool Exchange (AWEX) Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) fell 16ac or 0.81 per cent to 1963ac clean/ kg for sale week 38 ending March 22, 2019. Conversely though, in USD terms, the EMI increased by 6usc or 0.40 per cent to close at 1403usc clean/kg, as AUD strengthened 1.22 per cent against USD recently.
