AUSTRALIAN WEEKLY MARKET REPORT
The market eased this week but considering the volume and generally inferior selection, the small daily movement must be considered a fairly good result. We continue to hear exporters are waiting for available vessels to finalise contracts and have available letters of credit opened. Global shipments are impacted by general congestion for all international freight. This is impacting on current cash flow and is not expected to be an ongoing issue. As a result, the market appears to be in a holding pattern for the moment.

The market was showing improved confidence in Melbourne on Thursday which is a positive sign that there is some good underlying demand for greasy wool. Best fine types were very firm while the broader merinos were a touch dearer on the last day of the sale.
