The physical wool market was restless with a sizable volume of trades occuring in fine and medium micron wools. This sets a major comeback after winter recess.

The trade in 19 micron wool ranged from 1660¢ to 1900¢. There were ten trades in this category, out of which two trades set for October 2017 at 1850¢ and 1875¢, and four trades for November 2017 at 1800¢ and 1900¢. 2018 saw three trades in January, April and June each at 1800¢, 1750¢ and 1750¢ respectively. Also, another trade set out for 2019 at 1660¢ was noted.

The remaining trades were in the 21 micron category. Ten trades were set for September 2017, ranging between 1550¢ and 1580¢.  October 2017 saw deals happening at 1550¢, 1560¢ and 1570¢ respectively. Another trade was dealt for November 2017 at 1485¢. February, June and April 2018 saw deals between 1459¢ and 1510¢.

With the forward market being a hub of activity this week, the options market also received some attention. A minimum price contract was dealt for 21 micron at a premium of 30¢ and a strike price of 1580¢, set to mature in October 2017.
