Market Report for Sydney 40

2014-04-03

On a small selection of best style wools and mainly good topmaking, tender and high mid-break types, the market finally seemed to find some strength with all types slightly dearer and much better general competition. It was obviously China who decided to become more active, because the lower types were the first wools to become dearer. The small selection of 17.5u and finer were keenly sought after by NEW/Schneider.
Skirtings were very irregular. Light fault types and open tops were all firm to dearer whilst high vm types were 10/15ac cheaper.
