Top 20 weekly wool price rises in past three decades

Following a horror August when greasy wool prices plunged in a manner not seen since the fall of the Reserve Price Scheme, April 1973 and late 1951 (everyone remembers the peak but not the subsequent retreat in prices) the market staged a recovery last week. This article takes a look at last week’s rises and ranks it against weekly changes during the past three decades.

Sales volumes move to balance price

A falling wool market, such as we had in August, is a difficult situation made more difficult by a lack of hedge activity along the supply chain. The focus on spot, or near spot, trading means the full effect of raw material price changes flow directly into stock valuations. This article takes a look at the changes in auction clearances in response to the lower prices.

Top twenty Merino price falls since 1947

The August drop in greasy wool prices was substantial, with drought conditions increasing the sensitivity of farmers to lower wool prices at a time of high feed costs and high sheepmeat prices. This article takes a look at the average Merino micron price during the past seven decades and ranks the August price drop.

Merino price down cycle

The 17% drop in the average Merino micron price in August ranked ninth on the monthly price falls during the past 70 years. In USD terms it was a larger fall (23%) and ranked seventh. While the speed of the price fall surprised, the direction did not. This article looks to put the current market in a wider context beyond the price falls of August.

Staple strength and staple length

Shorter staple length wool tends to have a higher staple strength. This combination of specifications is wrapped up together when valuing wool of different lengths, a pertinent point when considering shorter interval shearing. Staple strength is a function of the variation of fibre diameter along the staple (more variation means lower strength) so a question was asked about the regional variation in staple strength for short wool. This article looks at this question.

Mohair update

Greasy wool prices have had a rugged month, with prices down by 10% to 20% depending on the category. The fall in price, while a surprise in terms of the rate, was in line with the general pattern seen in apparel fibres during the past year. For Australian wool prices, the trend has been masked by the floating currency and interrupted supply of South African Merino wool. In considering other apparel fibres, this article takes a look at mohair prices.

Ultrafine volumes

In markets, the flip side to price is supply, best exemplified in recent years by the low levels of Merino production in Australia – in particular, broader micron wool – and the high price levels. This article is the flip side to the article earlier in the week on ultrafine prices.
