In the basket of AG commodities they analyse wool and livestock do fare better than grains, sugar and cotton. Wool was the focus com- modity in this report and was in line with how we have been reporting the rather ''delicate balance'' that exists between weak- ening demand from devel- oped economies and a still tight supply situation. NAB 's economists point to a medium-term down- ward price pressure, due to a combination of weaker demand in the big devel- oped economies resulting in consumers ''trading down'' and cheaper syn- thetic alternatives and fibre blending. Perhaps significantly, they counter the position we have argued for some months in respect of retail demand from China, suggesting ''while demand for apparel in China may buffer these impacts some- what, it is not enough to offset weakness coming from other markets.'' They also acknowledge the limited stock levels in semi-processed wool in the pipeline as a result of the rapid winding down of stock levels due to high prices last year. Their forecast for the EMI, (which is a rather clumsy and general indi- cator of wool prices) dur- ing the 2011/2012 season is 1139c/kg clean. This certainly does not paint a positive picture for prices in the coming five or six months, given that the EMI has averaged around 1200c/kg for the first six months of the season thus far.You can do the sums yourself on this. That aside, we have been making sales to a number of buyers this week via the internet-based Wooltrade and if this is any guide the market should open pretty strongly next week.
