Weekly Wool Prices

Week Ending October 25 (Week 17)

25 October 2013

Following on from last week’s weaker market signals, Australian wool prices this week softened again on the back of a stronger AUD:USD foreign exchange (FX) rate and a selection of wools on offer that were largely not suitable to current demand. All Merino types finer than 19.0 micron lost 25 to 30acents, whilst the broader Merino categories were generally 15acents lower. Crossbreds and cardings lost a general 10acents from their previously established quotations.
