Melbourne Market Report M06 – 7 August 2018

Today’s selection was mainly in poorer types with low yields in 15.5-21.5 microns, with a very limited selection of better types.
The handful of better types in 19.5 microns closed generally unchanged with some irregularities, but the main offering of lower types were 20-30ac cheaper.
20.0-21.5 microns were 20/30ac cheaper.

Chinese types were 20-30ac cheaper.

A small selection of fine merino skirtings found reasonable support today and closed generally unchanged for less than 3%vm. All other microns and types closed 25/30ac cheaper with poorer topmaking and higher vm types most affected.

An unusually small offering of prems and lambs types in the 44-50HM range eased by 10/15ac for all microns.
