Wool prices from a domestic Chinese perspective

International commodity prices tend to follow similar cycles and trends in different currencies. Which exchange rates are important to the price of a commodity also depends on where it is consumed. For example, wool may be processed in China but then exported for further processing or for sale as apparel. In this case, the Chinese RMB exchange rate is less important. For wool consumed within China (reported to be in the order of half of the Australian clip) the Chinese RMB exchange rate is more important. This article takes a quick look at some key wool indicators in Chinese RMB terms.

Fibre price perspectives

Wool is a group of fibres (think Merino and crossbred, combing and carding, apparel and carpet) which is in turn embedded in a larger group of fibre markets. As such, wool prices are not independent of the wider fibre markets. With this in mind, this article looks for some perspective on current Merino prices.

Merino micron volumes and 2020 projections

Merino volumes have been falling since early 2018, with the average Merino micron consistently finer than year-earlier levels since January 2018. Change in individual micron category volumes is not equal. Change in the average Merino micron, when partnered with the standard deviation of fibre diameter, does a good job of describing (modelling) the Merino micron distribution. This article takes a look at this with regards to supply projections.

Combing wool price cycles

With Merino and crossbred combing prices trading at record nominal levels this season (early in the season for Merino and late in the season for crossbred) we thought it a good idea to look at the strength of these price cycles in terms of their proportional price rises from the previous cyclical lows. Read on to see how strong these cycles have been.

Yield effect on merino fleece prices

Greasy wool yields typically fall in the autumn, even more so in a drought season such as the current one. When a wool specification moves beyond its normal seasonal variation, processors take some time to adjust. Exporters however adjust their pricing in real time as they need to meet consignment averages. The consequence is that yield has become a more important factor in pricing. This article takes a look at the effect on merino fleece.

Strong crossbred prices in Australia – what about New Zealand?

In January Mecardo looked the correlations between Australian crossbred and New Zealand wool quotes. The correlation for full length 28 micron wool is good but gets weaker as the fibre diameter broadens above 30 micron. Given the 30% or so jump in Australian crossbred prices since January, we review how New Zealand wool prices have fared in recent months.
