Melbourne Market Report M31 – 31st January 2019

MARKET REPORT – Melbourne Sale M31

31/01/2019

On a poorer selection compared to yesterday, with a limited selection of better types/am in 19.5 and finer, and a limited selection of good, good- best topmakers in 21.5 and finer the market was 10/20ac cheaper today in 17.0-21.5 microns. More than likely reacting to the increase in the USD rate against the Australian dollar.
Selected lots in 18.5 and finer with favorable AM’s and or NM remained unchanged.

Fine Merino skirtings with less than 3%vm still well supported today and closed fully firm. Poorer and lower style wools carrying higher vm closed slightly cheaper.

Prems and lamb’s types in the 42-44HM range closed with finer microns 10/15ac cheaper and 19.0mic & coarser 15ac cheaper. Longer lambs/prems in the 46-54HM range closed with finer microns 10/15ac cheaper & 19.0 to 20.0mic 15/20ac cheaper with less competition from the Chinese indent buyers today.
