Key points

Wool -2

Wool -3

The finer fibres saw majority of the price movement on the physical market this week which flowed through to activity in the Riemann forward market. A relatively stable week in medium and coarse fibre auctions led to a bit of a breather with just one minimum price option for 21-mpg contracted.

In the 19-mpg category a contract was struck for August 2017 at 1750¢, along with a range of 1695 – 1700¢ being dealt for October 2017. The medium fibre market had some activity early on in the week with a minimum price contract in the 21-micron class set for July 2017 expiry. This dealing was at a 40¢ premium for a strike price of 1450¢ meaning the grower has locked in a minimum of 1410¢ for his trade with opportunity to act on any potential upside movements in price should they occur.
