In a mostly good/best topmaking selection of 17.0 to 19.5mic the market rebounded today with gains of 25/30ac for best specs and high yields. Selected lots of 19.5 to 21.5 mic with favourable am specs opened 30/40ac dearer with strong competition from Chinese indent buyers. Poorer style china types made more moderate gains of 10/15ac. A reasonable offering of Tasmanian wools sold with good support but majority passed in with grower resistance.

MARKET REPORT – Melbourne Sale M42

17/04/2019

In a much smaller offering of best/good types in 17.5 to 19.0mic today the market again struggled for finer microns with 19.5 to 21.0mic attracting strong competition from Chinese indent buyers. A small selection of good/best 16.0 to 17.0mic received limited buyer support to close 15/20ac cheaper. 19.0 to 20.5mic best style with high yields and favourable am’s buyers paying a 10/15ac premium.

Fine Merino skirtings with less than 3%vm well supported and closed fully firm. Poorer style and lower yielding wools carrying above 5%vm continued to weaken and closed 5/10ac cheaper.

Prems and lamb’s types in the 42-44HM range closed with finer microns 10/15ac cheaper and 19.0mic & coarser generally unchanged. Longer lambs/prems in the 46-54HM range closed with finer microns 10ac cheaper & 19.0 to 20.0mic generally unchanged in a reasonable selection today.
