Weekly Wool Forwards for week ending 24th May 2019

A quiet week in the forwards market, with 19 micron being the only wool length dealt.

For 19 micron wool, three trades were agreed. One was dealt for June at 2,175¢. For 2020, one trade agreed for both January and February and agreed at 2,070¢ each.

Currently, the forwards prices are higher than current auction prices, which indicates that supply is becoming a concern into Winter and points to the spot auction market making a base at current levels. For this reason, we’re going to hold off on the forward curve while we wait for more data.
